What Is Early Takeoff Syndrome? Video #7
This video is a companion for Linda Mecklenburg's article in the May 2010 issue of Clean Run: What Is Early Takeoff Syndrome?" Linda comments, "This Australian Terrier demonstrates how the forward-most element of the jump standard can create problems for the dog. With one-piece doubles and triples, where the back bar is recessed well behind the forward-most element of the wing, it can literally become dangerous. In USDAA Performance, spread jumps are not allowed. This video shows why manufactured double and triple wings should be replaced with single wings, or the bar at least moved to the front of the jump rather than the rear, when going from a spread to a single in Performance events."
