Clarification to Rules question regarding 3 Splash minimum at events with Finals or Qualifier.
There have been some questions as to a policy that requires a minimum of 3 splashes at any NADD event where there is either a Qualifier or a Fun Finals.
As all NADD mobile docks and Facilities offer a MINIMUM of 3 splashes each day, it should be very easy for a dog to get the minimum of 3 splashes in order to qualify for the 'Bubble' for the Fun Finals or for the 'Q-Rankings' at the Qualifying event.
At an event with a Fun Finals, in order for a dog to make the Bubble, they must a have minimum of 3 jumps at that event. Dogs will be ranked by their HIGHEST score for the event. The number of dogs from each division that will be invited to the Fun Finals, will be determined by each Facility.
At a Qualifying Event, in order for a dog to make the Q-Rankings , they must have a minimum of 3 jumps at that event. Dogs will be ranked by their overall average of all jumps completed at that event. The Top Dog (changed in 2019) in each distance (Top overall dog in each AR) division will earn the invite.
The current NADD portal auto-calculates these division and rankings. These reports are available to the event secretary.
