The November 2017 Masters League game was Jumplers. This Jumplers course allows bonuses for distance challenges; Run the course with handler entering no more than two boxes (“A” and “B” or “B” and “C”), earn 10 bonus points; Run course with handler in “B” only, earn 20 bonus points; Run course with handler in “A” or “C” only, earn 30 bonus points. Jumplers is scored Time, Plus Faults, Less Bonus.
This game design got absolute rave reviews from our league teams. It is smooth and flowing and of kindly design (even to old dogs that still want to have fun playing!) This course absolutely allows the dog to work at full speed and extension. The distance challenges added an element of fun and excitement.
