Tip Of The Day – Driving Through The Last Obstacle

Always make sure you drive through the last obstacle to the finish line.  One technique is to choose an imaginary point after the last obstacle to run to.  It is important because crossing the finish line stops the clock in games like Snooker and Snakes N Ladders.  Also, many dogs will drop the last bar if the handler slows down or pulls up short.

  1. This is what we do! In ASCA the last two or three obstacles can usually be taken at speed. I believe this is a recommend part of course design, providing for a fast finish. So we go flat out! 🙂
