This class will introduce your dog to the game of Scent Hurdling, a.k.a. “the thinking dog’s flyball.” It is a relay race with four dogs per team. Each handler scents their own dumbbell which is placed with three other dumbbells on the Dumbbell Box. Each dog takes a turn, jumping four hurdles on the way to the Dumbbell Box, finding the dumbbell with their owner’s scent, and bringing it back over the jumps before the next dog takes its turn. The fastest team wins.
There’s an additional cost of about $40 for a set of 4 scent hurdling dumbbells, unless you can beg, borrow or steal a set from someone else.
