Overview: In this video episode, I demonstrate and explain the 4th exercise in my system of directional command mastery – the “Crossing Behind” training exercise.

Done properly, and used in conjunction with a well-designed, comprehensive commanding system, this one exercise achieves 4 things:

  1. It continues to increase the dog’s understanding of the directional (or flanking) commands, by progressing on from the “offset stationary directions” exercise.
  2. It introduces the next “positioning” command – “behind”.
  3. It introduces the dog to “driving” in a very basic form.
  4. It is the stepping stone to the pivotal “reverse counter-balance” directional (flanking) exercise.

The “Crossing behind” directions exercise follows on from the previous “Stationary directions” exercise. In particular, it is a progression from the “offset” stationary directions exercise.

Running time: 16 minutes
