Scent Hurdling

Scent Hurdle Races have two teams, with four handlers and four dogs racing on each team.  The course set-up is similar to flyball.

Before the race each handler touches a dumbbell for their dog.  Then the dogs race, at the same time, over a series of four hurdles.

At the end of the hurdles each dog must retrieve a scented and numbered dumbbell, from a square platform, and then return over the same hurdles.  The platform is divided in quadrants, with each section containing a dumbbell.  The proper dumbbell is the one scented by the handler touching it before the race.
