the score in points.
5. Dogs may only run in a flat collar or “Naked”. Dogs may not run on
choke chains, e-collars or prong collars.
6. Dogs must be on lead for safety, unless running in the sprint chute
as the sport is very arousing for many dogs.

organised 2 persons. One to release the dog and one to catch as
the dog cannot run with one person due to time constraints. Each
person must have a lead in order to secure the dog upon
entering/exiting the Sprint chute.

bordered on each side by barrier/onion mesh to create an
