Courses - Portland, Maine Fri 6/25/10 - In REALITY
But I do have some interesting things to report!
* First, as expected, most errors began around the #9 jump. Not a single handler front-crossed after the weave poles and then rear-crossed between 8 & 9 like several on-line folks had suggested.
* #8 to 9 was a problem for some folks. Not one person did a front cross in this area, however some did push their dog off of the #9 jump when they failed to wait for the dog to cross before moving in on its path.
* Handlers who did a front-cross between #11 and 12 had a VERY wide dog path and many of the dogs went off-course over the #8 jump.
*Several dogs pulled off of the #13 jump.
I was worried handlers wouldn't like the course, but I've received compliments all weekend so that made me feel good!
