Today brings you the second round of our Fall Handling360 video contest. Thank you for your wonderfully supportive comments on the video stories in Round One. If you haven’t had the chance to watch those videos yet, don’t miss out. Be sure to check out Round Three too!
In case you’re just joining us… we asked our online H360 students to send us videos telling the story about their agility partnership with their dogs. These stories cover so much more than agility.
If you are inspired to raise the level of success and fun in agility for you and your dog, be sure to sign up for my upcoming free online agility seminar series. Just fill in your name and email address after clicking on our H360 notification list on the right hand side of this page.
Back to the video stories!
Please scroll down and watch the five videos below, and then vote for your two favourites! (Remember: as you are voting, you must select both at the same time before you click the “vote” button, as you can only submit your vote once). Stay tuned as we will release the final five videos for you to vote on in two days time.
At the end of the week, we will take the top two videos from each semi-final as voted by you, and they will go head to head in the grand final round to decide the top three prize winners. We will also be drawing two prize winners at random from all our entries.

Today I am grateful to our generous sponsors for their wonderful support of our community!
If you would like to focus your agility training, we have a quick and easy online quiz for you to enjoy. After you complete the quiz we will send you a gift eBook with agility focus tips based on your results. Next week I will be hosting a free online agility workshop, and we have started a Facebook group in preparation; everyone is welcome to join. So far there is a downloadable podcast in the file section AND on Saturday I plan on doing a Facebook Live broadcast (just for this group).
Amazing videos all!
I didn’t realize how much dedication is required when working with these wonderful dogs.
I really enjoyed all the videos, thank you and well done. My vote goes to Kim!
I am fortunate enough to know Sally and was there at the Agility Nat’s to see her struggle with her injuries, but as she said, she never gave up, but thrived on the knowledge that her 360 training would help her dogs achieve their great results. Sally is such an advocate of H360. That’s all she talked about at the Nat’s. Go Sally, you really deserve recognition for all your hard work in adversity, but above all, your wonderful attitude to your dogs and to life in general. A real inspiration.
All videos were great – hard to pick 2. Congrats to all participants.
You will have a bit of a difficult time deciding on these videos. All the best to those who joined!
Loved them all
Congrats to all the contestants. The videos are inspiring. Hard to pick. Best of luck in the future. Go H360!
Great videos. It is so hard to only vote for two.
The videos are great. Abby and me would love to improve. Focus is one of our problems. consistency is another.
Love, love the peanut holder Christine!
I dream with 360 handling!
I would love if my dog would make that kind of course easly.
She is 10 years old, na Cocker Blue, it’s used to staying at home all day/laying down all day…… but when I arrive home from work, she follows me every where.And we go for a walk(at nigth), she seems like she has never been out, and almost she pull’s so strongly that it’s me going for a walk, not she! And when we arrive at weekend, she sleeps “ALL DAY”
I would wanna know, how could I do, or play with her that would make her more energised?
Ps- (her name it’s Queen)
Sally and Melanie I like that you never gave up achieving your dream. I too have had many set backs in the 3 years I
have had my dog. Your videos give me hope.
Thank you Deb ? And my dream has always been to have dogs that are full of JOY whether in training or competing in obedience, agility or retrieving. The rest is simply icing on the cake. This year has been filled with lessons for me…yes, don’t give up but also be kind to yourself and to ask for help. Neither of the latter two lessons have been easy! The thing I love about H360 is that all the lessons are bite size and achievable…I can watch a 1:30 min video, have a 5 min session with each dog and then take a break. My shoulder is still frozen and my hand is still in a splint for training as I can’t yet straighten or use it much but even that is no barrier! I hope you can get back on track soon…all these opportunities will still be there for you when you and your dog are ready xxx
