AgilityNerd "Challenging" Course

Was really excited to get the opportunity to try out this difficult course from Steve at AgilityNerd. It's a fun one for sure, if you have room. We stretched it to make it legal.

AgilityNerd : Challenging Full Size Course



I'm very pleased with how Pimg handled the course!

noob question here, do the numbers in bubbles also indicate what side the handler should be on. i wish they would put that info and where the cross should be on those diagrams cos i trained to them the way i thought i should be in position without a trainer to help then find out i put the dog in the worst place and forcing him off a line etc - frustrating. how hard would it be to add that to those diagrams, we are not all genius and the good guys could just ignore the extra info.

Yes the number bubble would be the entrance to the obstacle. They don't show the crosses because that's totally up to the handler (but some people will draw theirs on and then compare).

Indy (All-American 5/10/12)

yeah well those guys will do there own thing no matter whats on the diagram - i got the clean run books full of those diagrams and i usually end up standing in the middle of the course with both hands pointing to the sky and the dog doing zoomies on the spot.

NO. The numbers do NOT indicate where the handler needs to be. The number only indicate which side and order the DOG needs to navigate the obstacle. The handler can be wherever they want.

This isn't paint by numbers. It's a sport with lots of training/practice involved. Keep learning... Putting where the HANDLER or CROSS should be on a course map is completely inappropriate and counter intuitive to how the sport works.

Thanks! All newbie agility people say that. Keep practicing; remembering a course becomes MUCH easier with time and practice. Never did I think I could remember a 12 obstacle sequence in beginner class, let alone a 22 obstacle sequence now in advanced classes. It comes with time...

Looks like a fun, challenging course! I still can't remember all the sequences all the time!

Did you end up teaching running contacts in SG's course?
