The obstacles a dog may need to perform include a variety of jumps, tunnels, a seesaw, a narrow "dogwalk", a tall a-frame, weave poles (a series of poles the dog must slalom between), and a table where the dog must stop and wait for a count of 5. The handler runs with the dog and guides the dog to the correct obstacle with voice and signals.
In competition, the handler may not use food, toys or touch the dog or the obstacles, however toys and food are used quite a bit in training. A dog needs to be healthy and reasonably fit to participate safely, but it's a game dogs of all sizes and shapes, mixed breed and purebred can play.
