I've improved the Cone Number Creation Page with a smaller size option 2" x 2 5/8" that fits on Avery #6572 label sheets or Avery #6578 water repellent label sheets. These self stick labels are a little smaller than the 3" x 3" labels and fit on low profile/flat cones:
2 inch number on a 7 in cone
2 inch number on a "flat" cone
I've tested them out on my laser printer and the numbers line up nicely on the labels!
So if you want to DIY your own cones, want to number courses up to 50 obstacles, or need lettered/combination numbers you can Create Your Own Cone Numbers!
I've changed the layout of the Wall Coordinate numbers PDFs to work with Avery #8126 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" shipping labels. Just use the Wall Coordinate Number page to create and download your numbers as PDFs. Then print them right on the Avery self stick labels:
This means it's even easier to put up multiple sets of numbers on the walls of your facility! A little time with a tape measure and you're ready to setup any course diagram regardless of English or Metric coordinates or where the designer put the zero/zero location!
Want your own numbered cones at home or for your training place? Want to run courses up to 50 obstacles long? Would you like different colored numbers? Or do you need to number combination obstacles with 'A', 'B', 'C' or even 'D'? Well now you can!
I've just added a new feature to the website to create big, easy to read, multi-color number sets you can download, print or plain paper, cut out and tape or glue onto your cones. You can also print the numbers right on self-stick labels!
The page generates a PDF containing numbers 1-50 and combo numbers 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D to 8A, 8B, 8C, 8D. Here are some example pages in different foreground and background colors:
Here's how the 3" x 3" numbers look on 9" tall and 7" tall cones:
3 inch number on a 9 in cone
3 inch number on a 7 in cone
So go to the Cone Numbers page, pick your colors and download your own set(s) of numbers! Give it a try!
Whether you call them "numbers", "coordinates", "wall numbers", "grid numbers", "yard lines", or something else, having coordinates posted makes setting up courses easier.
I've just added a new feature to the website to create big, easy to read, multi-color number sets you can download, print and put up in your facility.
If you print out numbers in multiple colors you can put up one set of numbers for when course maps have the zero location in a corner, another set for when maps have the zero in the middle, and another pair of sets in meters for setting up those international courses.
How do you do it? Just click the "Numbers" page link and fill out the form. To support measurements in feet and in meters you can specify the interval between the numbers as 2, 3, 5, or 10. Pick any combination of text and background colors. Then click the Generate PDF button and two PDFs are created giving you numbers from -120 to 0 and from 0 to 120. Then all you need to do is print out the ranges of numbers you'll need.
I'd love to hear your feedback!
I might be making a page to generate another set of numbers used in agility soon...
If you've browsed most courses on the site I hope you've seen the blue "See n Similar Courses" button:
Clicking on it shows you a page full of sequences that start the same as the current course. Which is great for training! You can use the same jump set up and you have a page full of sequences to practice longer and/or harder sequences that build on one another.More Like This
After I added four new box jump layouts it occurred to me that you might want a page of similar sequences for that layout. So I added the More Like This button to the title of each "Box" layout:
Not only do you have a fast way to see all the similar traditional box sequences, now you can see the similar sequences for all 18 non-traditional box sequences! I hope this gives you even more ways to spice up your training! See it in action!

In 2016 Putin and Russia launched a massive assault on America using social media platforms, like Facebook. If we ever return to normal (and we haven’t been turned into a white supremacist dictatorship) the efficacy of changing political fortunes using social media will require a very thoughtful study. One thing is certain, every Trump supporter […]
Our floor is always set for the current NDAL league course. Consequently, it’s natural that we will develop the lesson plan using the set of equipment on the floor. A lesson plan should be appropriate for the skill level of the handlers and dogs for whom it is intended. So the exercises that we would […]
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is […]

Dear Solei, I blinked and 9 years have gone by in an instant, so it seems. 9 amazing years with you being an extension of my consciousness, souls working in harmony and dancing through the courses as one. Now our time running in the ring together is coming to a close. Livers are stupid things […]
Having a facility with 3 posts in our arena, we realize that this can be a bit daunting for course designers. The main thing to remember is that these supports should disappear and not be an influencing factor in handler or dog performance. Here are a few things I have learned in my years designing […]
To My Agility Students: At the risk of sounding mushy, I will just say it: I want to help each of you succeed with all of my heart and every fiber of my being. However you define success with your dog, I want that for you. I share in the excitement a new puppy brings, your pain […]
As training with Mooz is progressing into more jumping and sequencing, all of my dogs are benefiting from revisiting some of my favorite drills. This particular one I want to share because I believe it is extremely versatile and will help most every team, regardless of experience or skill level. I call this drill the Offset Box. […]
Solei. Where to even begin? She has been the light of my existence the last 6 years. There are only a handful of days where she has not been by my side and it would take hours to calculate the miles we have traveled together over this planet. She is a sweet, wise, old soul and […]
