Both the GSD flyball boys have come so far! Below is the latest video, a compilation from January and February (Pan first half, Nikon second half). It’s funny, both boys are at the same place in their training (doing the full sequence, running singles races, ready to work on passes) but have very different styles of execution. Nikon is all about correctness and consistency. His turns are *really* nice! What he does really well is as he approaches the box he naturally moves to the left so when he launches onto the box and turns in the air, he has plenty of room to make the turn and land squarely on the box. A lot of dogs need a cone or other prop in front of the box to force this but Nikon is doing it naturally. From my angle – at the other end of the lane looking straight on – I can see this very clearly. Pan is the speed demon! In training he is competing with some of the fastest dogs on the team. The instructor believes he is already challenging the fastest GSD in the league and might run under 4 seconds with more training. My friends are also training their GSDs so we’re joking about running an all SchH-GSD team!
