You can see how close my dogs jump in these 3 photos. In one way, it's smart jumping cause they aren't waiting energy to clear them. This is Glory and the top bar stayed up.



Look at those back feet...



Now look at her front foot /ankle, that's amazing.

Some videos on 'Early Take Off Syndrome' ETS, not sure why I can't hear the audio...


You can set this up and have someone video to compare your dog if you think this may be an issue.


This dog/handler trial around me (heck I was probably at this trial ) , interesting to see a bigger dog.



After looking at those videos and going back to yours, to me that doesn't look like the issue. But I am not an expert and I'm sure the condition varies with each dog.

Thanks for the vids MRL! I felt so bad for that sheltie, he was so much fun to watch in the first few runs It really looks like Odin has the opposite problem of ETS. I'm really hoping with some work that it can be fixed. I'm going though and looking at all of his agility videos and examining his jumping. There has got to be a way to get him to learn to take off a little earlier and land a little shorter.

this may be like comparing apples and oranges but I watched video of my border collie who is a beautiful jumper and then Jackpot do the exact same line of jumps. Jackpot is almost twice as long as Driver and about 4 or 5 inches taller Driver was able to get 3 or 4 strides in between two jumps whereas jackpot could only get 2 strides and sometimes a skip. I was not pushing either dog for speed. Jackpot doesn't waste any extra energy on air time she only just clears the jump no matter if it is 22 or 26, I'm probably way off course but i'm wondering if it could just be to tight a spacing for these big long dogs?

Ya these courses are certainly not friendly to a big, long dog! But there are big dogs who can do it! Stew's mals seem to do okay with the jumps (and his male is pretty big) mals are generally just more athletic than GSDs. But still. The main reason I'm thinking of lowering him to specials is because it is going to be easier for him on these tight courses. BUT I think I may run into the problem of him trying to "step" over the jumps. I am entered in two upcoming trials at 26" and I will see how they go. Especially since I am doing flyball now, I worry about the impact of all that ugly jumping.
