General Discussion / Re: Teeter
« Last post by James Bell on Today at 04:47:23 AM »
As Chris described, the main issue was concussion and career ending injury, or IOW the issue was crappy training due to crappy criteria.

I've said for over a decade that the only way to make it safe was to CHANGE THE CRITERIA. Shorten the contact patch drastically (or reverse it), then if your dog has even a toenail in the contact area BEFORE the teeter touches ground, your dog faulted the obstacle. This enforces HANDLING and TRAINING of the obstacle. Dog must handle the teeter safely, tipping it in a reasonable manner, before they may leave the obstacle without fault. Tada! No more flyoffs, no more having to screw around with weights to deal with different weight dogs. Just a safe but fun obstacle. IMNSHO. :-)

I wanted to update you all...  I withdrew from Champs because of a family medical emergency.  Everyone is doing well, but hubby is still in the hospital. 

I will be mailing the magnets and decals to Karen Birdsong for distribution.  She and Judy Fulcher will be getting them probably by the start of Champs (Thursday).  I will try to get them there sooner, but it really depends on how things go medically.  Please see them.  I think they will have the magnets at Agility Videos 4 You (the pre-champs video vendor) booth, but not sure. 

I wish all the best of luck!  Have a great time!

So sorry to hear about your husband and that you will not be there.  Also very glad he is doing OK.  Amazing that you are finding the time to take care of the magnets and decals in this situation.  That is going above and beyond!!  Will find Karen and/or Judy whenever they get the goods.  Prayers for your husband.
