IV. GENERAL PROVISIONS AND GUIDELINES FOR PERFORMANCE AND EVALUATION
Unless otherwise specified in the individual exercise program, these General guidelines and guidelines for performing and evaluating competitive exercises apply to all types of exercises.
In the event of an incident that does not fall under the accepted rules and regulations, the judge decides on the methods of continuing the competition or on the assessment of such an incident. The judge’s decision is final, and no contestant should attempt to challenge any decision made by the judge.
Classes for developing obedience skills are evaluated on the following scale:
0 – 5 – 5.5 – 6 – 6.5 – 7 – 7.5 – 8 – 8.5 – 9 – 9.5 – 10.
Disqualification is a ground for termination of the speech and the loss of all awarded points. After the fact of disqualification, the dog can not participate in the remaining exercises.
Failure to complete any exercise is the reason for losing all points in this type of exercise, after which the dog can continue to perform in the remaining types.
A yellow card indicates a warning. The judge has the right to warn the trainer or dog in connection with their actions that do not correspond to the spirit of the competition. Disqualification occurs after the judge shows the yellow card twice.
A red card means immediate disqualification.
The judge has the right to choose the sequence of exercises. For all participants, the order of execution must be the same.
At the beginning and end of the exercise, the dog must be at the trainer’s feet. This position is defined as the position of the dog sitting on the left side of the trainer.
In the intervals between exercises (between exercises), the dog should be on the left side of the trainer. If the dog leaves the area during or between the above-mentioned exercises, it is subject to immediate disqualification.
The trainer must leave the dog’s leash outside the area or on the table of the competition Manager. This provision applies to all types of exercises.
All exercises begin at the moment when the Manager of the competition gives the command to the trainer with the dog to take the initial position, and the trainer simultaneously confirms the readiness to start passing the stages of a particular exercise. The exercise must be stopped after the Manager announces that the exercise has been completed. It is forbidden to indicate any positions or directions to the participating dog before or at the moment of performing the exercise stages (in contrast to those exercises that take place in a continuous mode). Such actions entail immediate termination of the exercise stages on the part of the judges or the Manager.
Commands submitted in accordance with these regulations are, in a way, recommendations. Other relatively short commands are also allowed.
Feeding dogs as a reward or any game items, balls or toys, is prohibited for use inside the site, both during the passage of the exercise stages, and in between them. If the judge notices that a competitor is using the items listed above, the competitor or participant will be immediately disqualified.
The trainer is not allowed to touch the dog or stroke it, or use other forms of encouragement / stimulation during the stages of any exercise. Such actions on the part of the trainer will be considered as stopping the exercise. Minor actions (such as words such as “good”, “well done”, or light pats on the back) are allowed only after the final stage of the exercise is completed. In cases of demonstration / manifestation of excessive encouragement, such as persistent suggestions, games, jumping on the hands of the trainer, repeated passes at the feet of the trainer, etc., the judge has the right to show the contestant a yellow card. In case of repeated violations, the judge shows a red card, which means immediate disqualification of the trainer and the dog.
The judge has the right to stop the exercise if the dog shows physical inability to participate in such an exercise. In this case, the exercise is considered unfulfilled.
The judge has the right to prohibit the dog from further participation in competitions if it is not physically prepared for this, as well as if it interferes with the performance of other participants by constant barking or howling. In this case, the judge may issue the first warning by showing a yellow card. If the dog does not stop the above actions, the judge will have the right to disqualify it (the dog) by showing a red card.
If the dog runs away from the trainer during the passage of the corresponding stages of the exercise (interrupts the process of performing the corresponding exercise), and does not respond to the commands of the trainer, the latter has the right to call the dog once, without moving from his place. If the dog returns to the trainer on his first command, the judge shows a yellow card and the exercise is considered unfulfilled, but the trainer and the dog can continue to perform at the next stage of the competition. And if the dog does not return at the first command of the trainer, the trainer and the dog will be subject to immediate disqualification. Disqualification also occurs if the dog does not return after the second team of the trainer.
In the event that the dog runs away from the trainer between exercises, the latter can call the dog only once, without moving from his seat. If the dog returns, the judge shows a yellow card. And if the dog does not return, as well as if it runs away again, the trainer and the dog will be subject to immediate disqualification.
During the exercise associated with checking the dog’s return skill at the command of the trainer (UPR. 5), the dog can approach, and sit down in front of the trainer. Then, the dog on command must (after receiving the appropriate permission from the Manager) quickly take a position next to as close as possible from the trainer.
