Catching Up

My dog is way faster than I am! How can I keep up?

Well, the short answer is, you probably can’t! dogs are just plain faster than us humans. Not to worry! you may be able to catch up in other ways.

  • Send your dog ahead: teach your dog to leave your side and complete obstacles on command.
  • Take the short cut: Let your dog take the long route between obstacles.  Look at your course map to see how you can cut corners while running.
  • Get in shape and wear good shoes: Even if you can’t catch up to your dog, you can at least get closer!
