June 2024 IDAL League Courses

We are continuing to run historical courses. Please note that 60x90 is playing a different game from the 50x70 and 40x85. 60x90 is playing Power and Speed. 50x70 and 40x85 are playing Warped Helter Skelter.

60x90

Briefing

Each handler and dog runs a course that is split into two sections: Power and Speed.

Power – The Power section typically consists of technical obstacles; contacts, and weave poles.


The Power section is un-timed. Consequently the start-line is positioned between the last obstacle of the Power section and the first obstacle of the Speed section.


Any faults earned by the dog will be added to the dog’s score. For example, if the dog misses a contact or earns a refusal on a contact obstacle, his score would be 5 for the Power section. Obviously, the ideal score for the Power section is 0.

Speed – The Speed section contains a straightforward Jumpers sequence. The goal is for the dog to run the course as fast as possible, preferably with no faults.

Time does not begin until the dog crosses the plain of the first obstacle of the Speed section.

Scoring for Power and Speed is Time, Plus Faults: faults from the Power section plus time from the Speed section plus faults from the Speed section. The dog with the lowest score wins.

50x70

Briefing

This game is a bit of a combination of Helter Skelter and Time Warp. The course is designed as a Helter Skelter spiral, testing a handler’s instincts for knowing when to have a foot on the gas, and when to have a foot on the brakes!


The Time Warp element, of course, is a subtraction from the overall score for working the dog at a distance.


This is a simple numbered course that will be judged Time, Plus Faults, Less Bonus. The course shows two bonus lines. If the dog can perform #8 through #12 with the handler remaining behind the closest containment line, the bonus will be 10 seconds. If the handler stays behind the furthest containment line, the bonus will be 20 seconds.


Otherwise, it’s just a numbered course. Follow the numbers; keep the bars up; and hit the paint.
