Level: Novice (CARO)
Space Required: 50’x70′
Designer: Ayoka Bubar
Comments: This course is set on a large field and contains a weave once, a straight figure eight, and a spiral. This means that the dog and handler need to be moving at a decent clip and perform precisely (no retries and few extra cues) to get through the course in under 4 minutes. The large number of cones on course also means more opportunity to lose points for knocked or moved cones which are, without fail, a result of the handler crowding the dog. No matter what sized dog you are working with, you will need to think about your dog’s body placement (and your own) through the cones to give both of you the room you need.
