DOG OBEDIENCE – Figure of 8

The principal feature of this exercise is the ability of the dog and the handler to work as a team. In the Figure 8 exercise, the handler will start by standing with the dog sitting in heel position facing the judge, midway between the two cones. Cones should be 8 feet apart at the centre. The handler may go around either cone first (walk in either direction).

The handler, with the dog on a loose leash, shall go twice completely around the figure 8 with one halt at the end of the first figure 8, and one after the second figure 8 (cross the centre line a total of 5 times). “Exercise over.”

The handler may give the dog a verbal command to sit on the halt. Handlers are permitted to give moderate verbal encouragement while heeling. Points will be lost if the handler constantly controls the dog’s performance by tugging on the leash, constantly adapting pace to that of the dog, giving more than two additional commands or signals to heel or giving excessive verbal encouragement.

Video: Start the video by introducing yourself, state your name (first only) and age, project’s name, and your club. Video in horizontal frame. Must be one continuous video, no edits. Please see diagram regarding judge / videographer placement.
