2019 Rule update: The use of training items on the dock
RULES UPDATE EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY (7/12/19):
The use of any 'training' items are not allowed during Sanctioned events. These are items such as: stride regulators, leashes laid across the end of the dock, or any type of hurdle, etc. These items are to only be used for training and not for competition. These items can also be a safety hazard.
The basic standard is in relation to any items placed on or above the surface of the dock that is used for the dog to mark or target.
This rule is an immediate update and the 2019 Rulebook dated July 12 2019 will be updated to reflect this change.
