Re: another UKC obedience question
NQ - would be considered an additional command and possibly training in the ring.
When you throw the dumbbell and tell the dog to get it, pay attention to what you are doing as the dog turns to come back. On the return you look toward the jump, that should remind the dog (legally) to take the jump on the return. Follow the dog with your eyes as he returns to front. That helps the dog come in straight. Don't move your head (additional command) but follow with your eyes.
You better your odds with a good throw too.
