Dogwalk speed

SUMMARY: Timer built into the dogwalk.
Where I train now has beeper/timers built into the dogwalk, and the Aframe is coming soon. So you can use the beeper to indicate when the dog hits the yellow zone (e.g., if you're doing running contacts), or attach the timer clock, which times from their first hit on the up contact to their first hit on the down contact.

Boost's time Tuesday night was 1.32 seconds, 2nd fastest that I saw (another Border Collie did 1.23). And I've been thinking that she slows down for the descent. Pretty darned cool.

I didn't notice Tika's time.

I wonder how fast Boost's sister Gina's fabulous running dogwalk is? Didn't film any of Gina at the Regionals, but it sure looked good.


  1. What will they think of next! Pretty nifty. Nifty times on Boost, too.

  2. Oh they run really fast on that speed of time that you gave..
