Large dog: 3 ft. wall

THE EVEN GREATER WALL! Ready, aim, jump through the windows! Precision, obedience and leash handling skills will be put to the test on this obstacle! Two of these on course.

Follow the tire covered trail and conquer the hill of tires.
MUDDY WATER GRAVE:
Climb in and crawl through the muddy waters to the other side. . .
This should probably be named slosh, not splash. Brave the mud and Run, Forest, Run!

STRAW BALE HOP!
You and your dogs balance on and hop from bales to bales!

Thought A frames were just for agility? Think again! You and your dog will scale an A frame on the course.
Scale the berms and descend into water. The water is clean and shin deep in places.
You and your dog climb to new heights on the straw bale pyramid!
