Cala broke a tunnel support in May by turning around in the middle of the thing and flying back out the entry after I did too hard a rear cross. Oops.

You'll appreciate this story. A few years ago, before my time in the club, during the course build a tunnel was carried out containing Lorne and a Min Pin, Tonka. First dog off the line was Dagger, a Dobie.
Dagger entered the tunnel, Lorne grabbed him, and let Tonka go. Doberman Pinscher in, Miniature Pinscher out. Hilarity ensued.

AH lorne is a person! I was truly confused for just a moment.
I'm not sure how much handling you can work on on just tunnels, a bit Iguess, but not really all that much.

Tons and tons and tons. Great time to work on crosses, IMO, because you have a little extra time to get where you are going. And its great for the dog, because if a dog is going to get confused on a cross, its going to be in a tunnel where they cant' see you.

Well honestly, I'm still confused (in addition, I never saw Matt's original post). What do you mean "a tunnel was carried out containing Lorne and a MinPin." How do you carry a tunnel with a person in it? Was she stuck? Why was she carrying a min pin in the tunnel? Why was the first dog allowed to run with a person and a dog in the tunnel?
Too funny! Darn I wish I had thought of that...

Yes, I understand there is a lot of handling moves that can be worked on with just tunnels, but I'm not sure I would just work those handling moves on tunnels only, simply because you don't often have to worry about the timing. A slow front cross on a tunnel isn't so bad, but to keep practicing a slow/bad front cross because you're only working tunnels is bad. A bad front cross on a jump and down comes that bar. And if the dog can't see the front cross then he doesn't learn to respond to it.
Of course, all handling moves should be practiced on all obstacles. Lauralyn

I don't know how else to phrase it.

Too many questions. It's like explaining a joke - either I told the story wrong or you're just not going to get it, no matter the explanation.

I'll stop with "funny but true" stories.

On behalf of those who did it - thanks!
On behalf of me, thanks for being one of the apparent few who understood my telling of it.
