Regular is most like standard agility found in other venues and consists of a series of obstacles that must be taken in order. These obstacles include jumps, weaves, tunnels, and contact equipment.
Jumpers is again very much like Jumpers in other venues. The course consists of a series of only jumps and tunnels that must be taken in order. A very fast and fun game.
Chances is a game designed to test the handlers ability to control the dog at a distance. It consists of a series of obstacles arranged much like a Regular course but it includes 1 to 3 “tests” where the handler must remain behind a line and send the dog to a distance, directional, or discrimination challenge. Obstacles and “tests” must be taken in the sequence as numbered.
Tunnelers is a very fast game consisting of only tunnels. The tunnels are numbered and must be taken in the order specified.
Weavers is a game consisting of only tunnels and weave poles. This is again a numbered course and obstacles must be taken in the order specified.
Touch n Go is a game consisting of only tunnels and contact equipment. This is a numbered course and obstacles must be taken in the order specified.
Hoopers is very much like Jumpers. The course consists of a series of only hoops that must be taken in order. Handling skills are tested as there is no opportunity to adjust while the dog is jumping or in a tunnel. A very fast and fun game.
Barrelers is a game designed like horse barrel racing. There are barrels, hoops, and tunnels to navigate. Obstacles must be taken in order. A great game for all dogs.
