Determine Your Maximum Course SizeUpdated 4 months ago

The maximum course size that Chase! will successfully run is about 100 feet. That's 25 feet per side for a square course. If your drive is running erratically, or trying to run but won't - your specific course might need to be a bit smaller. To determine the maximum course for your specific setup, first set up a smaller course of 60 or 80 feet (ie: a square 15 or 20 feet per side). Once you get a smaller course running as expected, you can gradually increase the size until performance drops, and then go back to the last size that worked well. This will be your maximum. 

Note: Setting up a course somewhere else, or when things that add "drag" to the course change (using a critter lure instead of a compostable flag, cutting the grass, etc.) you may have to adjust the course size to compensate for these changes.
