gcv-border Posted June 12, 2013 Report Share Posted June 12, 2013 I was watching some live streaming of the Southeast Cynosports action this weekend, and saw a fair amount of handling mistakes. When I go to an agility trial, I try to be at ringside when I know a talented handler is going to be running - hoping to pick up some tips. (timing, strategy, cues, positioning, etc.) While watching this weekend, I began wondering if watching runs with handling mistakes is something I want to do. With the talented handlers, I will try to visualize what they do (as it applies to me and my dog) and then maybe incorporate their good techniques. On the other hand, watching handling mistakes may also begin to creep into my handling (unconsciously). What do others think? What value do you place on watching good runs vs. less-than-stellar attempts? And do you think that they influence you - or not?
