wildo Posted January 8, 2013 Report Share Posted January 8, 2013 I hope you guys don't mind me posting here, even though I don't yet have a BC. But I do have a border collie question on this subject... With the snow, it's been really difficult to train outdoors. I've been working on Silvia Trkman's "Tricks for Balance, Strength, and Coordination" DVD indoors, but today at lunch I noticed the dogwalk had all the snow and ice melted off. So we did some contact training on my lunch break. I know that this isn't the most accurate method of measurement, but I used a stopwatch to mark the instant she crosses the start of the dogwalk and the instant she exited the dogwalk. For each run in order in the video, I got: 1.507 seconds (going straight off the end) 1.573 seconds (going straight off the end) 1.543 seconds (asking for a turn off the end to the left [cued late]) 1.782 seconds (asking for a turn off the end to the left) 1.962 seconds (asking for a turn off the end to the left) 2.338 seconds (asking for a turn off the end to the right) An average of 1.784 second dogwalk. Granted- it's a low dogwalk, I understand. As I fade the hoop and she maintains criteria, I'll raise it up to full height. I'm just curious what the average dogwalk time is for a fast border collie?
