Sorry, I just meant more speed on your part to get her moving a little quicker - handling will definitely come with time. I have taken 4 or 5 handling classes now and they are a godsend for sure! Creating drive beforehand with tug, etc. is also a great way to get more speed out of a dog, though. Recon and I spend the 5 minutes before a run playing and warming up with tug to get him ready. He'd certainly run without it, but just like with dock diving - the more "intense" the dogs are, the faster they will run!
