Dana Pike Shows off Her Blind Wrap (Ketschker)

So as I have been trying to figure this whole thing out, guess who should pop up on my YouTube while I'm aimlessly browsing agility videos? That's right. Dana Pike pulling off a perfectly executed blind wrap, actually what would be defined as a Ketschker turn, jumps to weaves. Darn her and her blue Pony! She does this in a knee brace, too, for heaven's sake! Watch for it in this video, after the chute. Tres chic!

And not to be outdone by her own self, Dana pulls a couple more blind tricks from her sleeve in the following clip. It takes a lot of trust between handler in dog to pull off this type of handing, not to mention great timing and very accurate placement of cues. Amazing job Dana!

Also big congrats on winning 2nd Place with Tangle in the 8" Finals of the 2011 AKC National Agility Championship. Your handling made all the difference and left not a spare inch of yardage behind!
