Thirty games are provided and most are supplemented with variations allowing hundreds of games to be actually developed from this book. The games are for all age handlers, and all dogs. Some commonsense will be required to sort the athletic from the toddlers, but in many games such a division isn’t even necessary.
MEDIUM ACTIVITY LEVEL
Each partnership balances a book, glass of water, or another item, on the owner’s head
The partnership must complete a figure of eight (posts are formed by two other partnerships who alternate with other team members)
the winners are those who complete a clear round in the shortest time frame
may include completing two or more rounds
a different shaped course, e.g. triangle, or a short cross country route
the `posts’ may distract the dog member of the competing team
a lightweight item may be balanced on the dog’s head instead of the owners
owners could be asked to complete the course by crawling
