Educational Tip - Taking Bi-Directional Barrels
« on: February 14, 2014, 07:25:09 PM »
Bi-directional tunnels may be taken in either direction, however once a dog commits to a side of a tunnel with all four paws, that defines the direction that the tunnel must be taken.  The same holds true for barrels.  A dog is committed to a direction when they pass an imaginary line, with all four paws, at the front of the barrel and perpendicular to the direction of approach.

See attachment.

Just a question, could we have the same diagram where you are taking the barrel on an arcing path?
