AD location to follow shortly.
The minimum age is 16 months, the maximum age 6 years.
All dogs must be registered in a GSA, WUSV or FCI recognised Breed Book or Performance Register.
The dogs must be completely healthy and in good training condition. Sick, not adequately strong dogs, females in heat, pregnant or nursing females are not allowed to participate.
The scorebook must be presented. The judge and the trial secretary of the hosting club must verify that each dog is in good condition.
Dogs that look tired or make a listless impression must be excluded from participating. The handlers must conduct themselves in a sporting manner throughout the event.
The dog must be kept on leash and move in a normal trot next to the bicycle. Overly fast running is to be avoided.
The leash must be adequately long to give the dog the ability to adjust to any changes in speed. Devices used to attach the dog to the bike (‘Springer’) are permitted.
Slight pulling on the leash (forging) is not faulty, however, continuous falling behind (lagging) of the dog is faulty.
Two rest breaks and physical checks will take place.
During this break, the dogs must be given the opportunity to move about freely and relaxed but must be kept on leash.
Shortly before the rest periods are over, the judge must examine the dogs for signs of fatigue and sore paws.
Upon completion of the running exercise, a 15-minute break is taken. During this break, the dogs must be given the opportunity to move about freely and relaxed but should be kept on leash. Again, the judge will examine the dogs for signs of fatigue and sore paws.
After concluding the running exercise, at the judge’s instructions, the handler, with the dog at heel, has to take up position. After being called, every participant, with their dog, must show obedience exercises appropriate to the training level of the dog. The exercises can be shown on a loose lead.
