    Default Right&Left Backs

    My dog is driving to the pile very good, she runs a great line. Im getting ready to start left and right overs. But im confused about left and right backs. Could someone tell me why and how to do this. Thanks.

    Set your dog in front of you on a lead step back about 2 or three yards throw bumper 10 yards behind pup off set your self the way you want your dog to go left back u of set to the left this should make your pup look towards u give a left back if she turns the other way correct her with the lead. I just got through this with my pup. She already new left and right overs. She caught on really quick with it. Keep increasing your distance

    Why-
    Because they're both a huge fundamental for handling!

    There's a significant difference between OVERS and BACK, yet, from a distance both visual cues can be confused - distance erodes not only control, but the visual aspects as well. Casting your dog BACK will include proper rotations from a remote front SIT when you cast the dog BACK to the desired pile , whether it be square or angled BACK. (REPS.)

    Your dog learns that not only can he be driven to a back pile in a straight line, but he can also be driven to a pile to the left or right.

    Have dog on check cord. Sitting in front facing you. Step off to the right side a bit immediately in front of the dog. Hold bumper crossways in your hand. Get dogs attention and looking at bumper. Hold your right arm in the air, throw the bumper (while still crossways in your hand). Don't restrain the dog. Say fetch as you throw the bumper. It will only go a few yards as it is an awkward throwing position. Dog can't help but turn the correct way. Next time throw more regular way, but still off to the right side a bit but very close to dog. Still say fetch as you throw with right arm in the air. Next time same thing except hold the dog by lead or collar. Still say fetch raising right arm in the air. Then gradually step back a bit. Throw normal restraining dog, say fetch back as raising right arm. Slowly increase the distance back from dog and making him sit until released with right arm in the air and saying back.

    Repeat on left side. I thought I had a video of this. I will look for it.
    Here is the video. This is not step 1 but more like step 2. http://s868.photobucket.com/user/way...8022d.mp4.html
    Hope this helps.

    Wayne, pretty brave of you to do that without gloves on.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
