Session 2 - Step 4
Calling your dog to you
Lead out is when you head out to an obstacle and call your dog to it. This gives you a head start for the next obstacle in agility. We use it here to teach your dog that you won't always stay beside them through this. Plus getting your dog to sit and then call them to you adds speed to their run as the rush to catch up with you and get to the mat.
Start by going out just two steps away from your dog and calling them out, as soon as they get close to you, guide over the jump and then on to the mat for their reward.
Step 5 - Add distance to your lead out.
Build up to a full length lead out
