The repeated naming of the handler to the dog of the
obstacle is unnecessary since the dog is going over several of the same obstacles. Actually speaking to your dog for each move such as jump, jump, actually causes the team to loose valuable seconds.
Try timing yourself speaking the name of each obstacle, then with out. You will see seconds saved, I am sure. Randomly practice sending and calling your dog over 3 obstacles every time your practice, you find your dog will become more solid recognizing the name of the obstacles. 3x tire, 3 x see saw, etc.
