" The Start and finish jumps are live during the opening and closing sequences.
" Only three reds may be performed (successfully or unsuccessfully).
" All Obstacles may be performed in either direction including the start and finish jumps.
" Refusals are not judged in the opening, but touching a color obstacle makes the choice of which obstacle is to be taken and the direction it must be taken.
" Going under a jump bar or jumping over the wing of a jump of a color obstacle dictates direction for performance.
" Once the dog has entered the weave poles and begun the performance, this obstacle must be completed in that direction.
" If an obstacle attempt is unsuccessful, but completed, the judge will call out "no" and no points will be awarded.
" If an attempt at an obstacle is successful, the judge will call out the number of the obstacle.
Combination obstacle rules
" Combinations (obstacles 4 & 6) consist of more than one element which may be performed in any order. Example 4 can be performed in any order and in any direction provided each element is only performed once and no other obstacles are performed between the 3 elements of obstacle 4. Similarly obstacle 6 consists of 4 elements which can be performed in any order and in any direction provided that the tunnels are performed once each and the jump performed twice. No other obstacles may be performed between the four elements of obstacle 6)
" Failure to complete the combination correctly shall end the scoring.
" When any element is refused by the dog, this element can be retaken before the next element or other obstacle, to score the points of that combination.
" All obstacles to be performed as numbered
" Refusal are judged and faulted, resulting in end of scoring.
" Must perform the finish jump to get a course time.
