Session 2 - Step 9

Send over and call back

Put the lead out and call back together

Once we have dealt with some of the basic issues of going around the jumps now we want to put the two directions together. Put your dog in a polite sit on their mat. Travel to the other mat, place a treat and head back to your dog.

Send your dog over the jump with an 'Over', once they have gotten the treat at the other end, call them back to you with another 'Over'.
