Each dog and handler team gets one opportunity together to attempt to complete a course successfully. The dog begins behind a starting line and, when instructed by his handler, proceeds around the course. The handler typically runs near the dog, directing the dog with spoken commands and with body language. The quickest time around the course with no faults or the least faults will determine your finishing position.
