Teaching a Green Dog to Pass

Key points to remember when teaching this exercise...

a) Patience- Its better to do more repetitions at each stage than not enough

b) Don't progress if the new dog looks unsure at any time.  Things to look for that tell show your dog isnt comfortable yet.  Ears perk up, they swerve out of the lane and then back in, run around the jumps, or dive bomb the on coming dog.  Some are more obvious than others.

c) If your switching to different experienced dogs every practise you will need to start back a step or 2 and make sure you give your new dog time and space to figure out how the different experienced dog moves.
