General Information

Run Thrus are for dogs with a knowledge of agility equipment and able to perform obstacles safely. Run Thrus aren’t meant for introducing your dog to equipment. Courses are designed for all levels and generally will be nested using different color cones for the different choices of courses. You may follow the numbers or design your own course. 90 seconds are given for each Run Thru. Run Thrus are not judged but you may ask for a person(s) to be in the ring to simulate a trial experience. While treats and toys are allowed in the ring, please no crumbly treats that can fall to the ground and distract the next dog.

Facebook Group

CATS has a Facebook Group by this name ” Run Thru Thursdays” which is open to the public. Please join the group for up-to-date information posts; course maps are posted to the FB Group on Mondays; and weather cancellations. Questions are welcome on the Group.
