Today's Regular courses featured a barrel tunnel trap that I have not seen before. Here's the Elite course map. To me it seemed like the tunnel was pushed to the right as I indicate and the barrel a little bit to the left. In any event wrapping the barrel to the #4 hoop was not an easy feat. On the Novice version of this course, Willie was to the mouth of the tunnel in both Round 1 and Round 2. Novice Rd 2 did had the dog coming straight toward the barrel from a couple of jumps. The judge kindly removed the tunnel under the AF, but then replaced the #13 tunnel with a barrel.
Needless to say, I will be setting up my barrel with an attractive off-course obstacle behind it as soon as it gets nice enough to play outdoors again.
Here's one set of exercises I dreamed up.
