Snooker is a game of strategy - your success comes down to planning the perfect course for your dog and executing it correctly. If Snooker is still an agility mystery to you, check out our first blog post in this series: What is Agility Snooker?
The best way to understand how to play the game of Snooker is to see it in action. Below is a video of OneMind Dogs Instructor Gisela Griesser running her dog, Mick, through an AAC (Agility Association of Canada) Masters level Snooker course.

In this run, Gisela did a great job thinking on her feet when Mick knocked the bar of the third red jump! Having a back up plan for when things don’t go exactly your way is a great way to keep yourself in the Snooker game and not get whistled off, even when something unexpected happens!
