Knocked Bar
by Melinda Schneider (morningmagenta) 
Nikon D-40X
Stephentown, New York
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
In competitive dog agility, a knocked bar is a five-point fault. It is not hard to teach a dog the importance of keeping the bars up, but most people do not focus on jump training. Not all dogs are natural jumpers, and all dogs can benefit from specific training over jumps.

Wonderful stop action timing and good expression shown as the dog seems aware of the slip...congratulations on your POTD!

Interesting competitions...terrific action shot! You've captured the excitement and willingness in this pooch's eyes! Congrats on your POTD!

The dog might not have done it correctly but you nailed a great action shot Melinda. Congrats on your POTD.

What a terrific stop action shot as this dog is up & ready to make the next turn. It is funny because he almost seems to have a look of disappointment on his face as if he knows he missed the jump...many congrats, Melinda!

Thank you Linn, Renne, Efton, Patrice, and Kathy! He's a very nice dog but, when it comes to jump bars, he doesn't understand his job...it's a fairly easy skill to teach, but this dog has lots of issues (and lots of talent).
