Courses - Springfield, MA - Fri
Attached are courses from our Fri Springfield, MA judging assignment.
I loved how this Excellent JWW course ran. It was fun to watch and I received feedback from exhibitors that they enjoyed running it as well - always nice to hear.
On paper, the #10 - #15 sequence looks a bit scary. In real life, it generally ran smooth and was fast and flowing. My favorite part was the #13 jump through the #15 tunnel. Dogs were able to accelerate as they headed into the closing sequence.
Attached is Dan's Excellent Standard course. As for challenging areas, I heard several exhibitors had difficulty making the weave entry. After looking at it, I wonder which side of the triple they were on while heading toward the weaves.
I also heard folks mention that several dogs took the off course #18 jump after the dog walk.
