Courses - Springfield, MA - Sat
Attached is the Excellent Standard course from today's trial in MA. A few items that caught my attention:
- Several handlers set their dog's up within feet of the first jump, which resulted in a knocked bar.
- The #9 & #14 jumps were the most popular dropped bars.
- Several handlers assumed #14 - #16 was a straight line. If dogs were ahead of their handlers, they would often curl in and take the off course jump after #15.
- Quite a few dogs missed the weave pole entry.
