Distance Work

I have been using this little course for a few weeks with both Wyatt and Patriot.

Running the circle course from behind the jumps is good distance practice.  More importantly for me and Wyatt, running the square course gets lots of practice at the "switch" command at a distance.  I am finding that the timing has to be just right.  The command for 4 has to be in time and also, very important, I can't just focus on on 4 but have to give the "go ahead" command for 5 in time or Wyatt will turn back to me.

This looks like great practice!And you are right about timing being everything, if I am late, I'm a goner!
