These exercises have a cute, Christmas tree shape and fit in a 50'x80' space. By Leona Hellesvig
This course layout resembles a Christmas tree:
The first sequence is fairly straight-forward. It is good for beginners who need to work on taking angled jumps.
These sequences focus on pushing your dog to the backside of the jumps.
The last sequence has lots of tight turns with opportunities to go off course. How will you keep your dog on the correct path?
