Tested them out on the crate that was set up in the office over the weekend (for Oreo...so John could get to her).
The first try, I stood in front of the crate opening. Second try, I stood to the left of the crate door (facing the crate).
Xander turned right at first, then turned left.
Score turned right at first, then turned left.
Inara went right both times.
Fig turned right at first, then turned left.
Bean turned right, then wouldn't go back in the crate.
Rip turned right both times.
Now...the dogs that turn to their right naturally in flyball are: Xander, Score, Bean. The ones that turn to their left in flyball are: Rip, Inara and Fig.
Make of that what you will...
I'll try and remember to see what they do at flyball this weekend...when they go in and out of their crates more often.
Oh yeah...and Fry-cat turned to the left, laid down and wouldn't get up
