Our event is geared toward any dog and handler, regardless of level of training or breed/mixed breed.
The advanced course is for military or working K9s, and includes gunshots and an optional bite work scenario.
You can run the course at your comfort and skill level. Teams will be sent onto the course at 5 minute intervals to allow proper spacing for dogs and avoid jams at obstacles. If passing a team, p be courteous and notify the team you are approaching and passing. You may skip any obstacle, but will incur a time penalty for each obstacle skipped.
Sure! You can start together – teams of 3 dog/handler teams or more receive a 20% discount.
Minimum age for dogs is 12 months. Dogs must remain on leash. Food or treats on course is not allowed. You may bring a ball or tug with your dog for motivation.
Collars allowed: Pinch/prong, choke, flat, fur saver, or harness.
Winning is based on the time of the dog and handler team. Time penalties will be given for not completing or passing an obstacle
