Here are a couple of EGC runs from this weekend’s trial. Jake did a great job running Extreme Hoopers earning a very high score of 93.64. Lil’s score of 102.29 in Extreme Gaters was the highest score of any dog. 🙂 YEY for both dogs!
In EGC, the score is based on time plus faults: 5 point Q for scores between 50 and 75; 10 point Q for scores between 75 and 100, and a 15 point Q for scores over 100.
With no jumps, contacts, or weave poles to slow them down, dogs can really let loose and run on EGC courses. I think Jake and Lil will continue to get faster and faster as they gain more experience running around these strange, new obstacles. 🙂
I love that the handler’s job is entirely straight forward… to show her dog “the path” in a timely fashion. EGC might be the most fun I’ve ever had running agility with my dogs. The EGC classes at last weekend’s trial were BIG and most people (and dogs 🙂 ) were smiling ear to ear after their runs. I hope EGC continues to grow in popularity so more local trials offer EGC classes in the future.
