By chance – if weather allows it 4/17

April 15, 2010

In the chance the weather allows us to be outside for practice this weekend, I thought it would be fun to try a game of Chances. The course is an actual trial course and shows the gamble lines for all three levels (as well as the bonus line). Of course, which (if any) gamble line each chooses to honor is a personal choice.

If the weather doesn’t hold, I designed a course intended top help build the dogs’ confidence. The principle is that the ‘next’ obstacle should be obvious to the dog, allowing it to more independently choose the right obstacle and perform it with minimal prompting needed by the handler. The handler’s responsibility is to direct the dog to where it sees the next obstacle, and on this course, that hopefully isn’t very difficult to do.
