tunnels in VT
« on: February 18, 2021, 08:17:24 AM »
In a course such as TouchNGo in Maholie, can a 20 foot tunnel be used under the A-Frame?    I know that one is used under the dog walk.   And then obstacle number 10 would be a 15 foot tunnel.
If allowed, what would entered when calculating SCT?    Do you sort of scrunch up the tunnel under the A-Frame so that it is only 15 feet?

Thanks.

20' tunnels are not allowed under the aframe.

No one should be scrunching up tunnels to make them fit the course.  This creates a footing issue inside the tunnel for the dogs. Little dogs especially,  because they get their feet stuck between the tight folds.
