The year 2021 is rolling right along, and we have come to the end of yet another month. This post is for the results of the 60×90 Masters League. Three clubs have reported results for this League for April. This was a challenging course with a wicked weave entry. It is worth watching some of the videos to look at the handling options chosen.
We have been using “historical” courses for a while now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These are courses that have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in April earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP) based on the entire field of dogs who have competed on the course, including historical performances. The LPP is a measure of rank based on how they placed in relation to all the other dogs.

Throwback Dog – Because I Can
