General Information - (Limited Entry Trial)

This is an Agility Association of Canada (AAC) sanctioned trial that will be held under AAC rules and regulations. Note that the Paws4Fun Agility Trials Organizing Committee reserves the right to refuse any entry. There shall be no refunds for acts of God, inclement weather, missed runs, entries withdrawn after the closing date, if a dog and/or handler are dismissed from competition, regardless of the reason for such dismissal, or in the event the dog is absent on the day of the trial. FEO runs are allowed. Please indicate them on the entry form.

>> COVID-19 Pandemic rule: any competitor who elects not to attend the trial because they have tested positive or have symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in recent contact with someone who tested positive or has symptoms of COVID-19, will receive a full refund..

If a competitor has a bitch who will be into season (BIS) on the trial date, the competitor must inform the Trials Secretary (TrialsSecretary@Paws4FunAgility.ca)  as soon as they know their bitch is in season, preferably prior to the Trial date, but worst case on the Trial date. The Trials Secretary must inform all other competitors that there will be a BIS at the trial as soon as they are notified by the competitor.

It is Paws4Fun Agility Club policy to provide, on a case-by-case basis, either refund of monies or credits to be used at a future trial based on a decision by the Board of Directors and an administrative fee may be retained on refunded entries. However, provided the Trials Secretary (TrialsSecretary@Paws4FunAgility.ca) is informed prior to, or on the day of the Trial, full refunds with no administrative fee will be given to competitors who withdraw: 

     (1) a bitch which has come into season (BIS);

     (2) a dog because Paws4Fun has informed them that there will be a bitch in season at the trial;

     (3) an injured dog.

Title Trial: Dogs will be divided into 6 height groups (4", 8", 12", 16", 20", and 24") in 4 divisions (Regular, Special, Veteran and Double Drop Veteran). Masters Standard is open to dogs with an AADC title. Advanced Standard is open to dogs with an ADC title. Starters Standard is open to dogs that do not have an ADC title. Masters Games are open to dogs who have 3 corresponding Advanced Games qualifying scores (Q’s) under 2 different judges. Advanced Games are open to dogs who have 2 corresponding Starters Games Q’s under 2 different judges. Starters Games are open to dogs who have not earned 2 corresponding Starters Games Q’s under 2 different judges. Team Relay and Steeplechase are open to all levels. Note that move-ups will be allowed during the trial, provided space, time and sequence of events allow.

Obstacles: All obstacles conform to AAC specifications. Obstacles include A-frame, Dog Walk, See-Saw, Weave Poles, Flexible Tunnels, Self-Healing Tire Jump, Ascending Spread Jump, Triple Jump, Double Bar Jump, Wall Jump, and Single Bar Jumps (winged and wingless). All contacts are rubberized. An electronic timing system (ETS) will be used for all events.

Facilities: The trial will be held outdoors on the Paws4Fun Agility grass fields and will proceed rain or shine. Portable washrooms are available. Bring your own seating, drinking water and dog crates. There is plenty of space for setting up shade tents, which are recommended, as shade is limited. There will be access to a pool with non-potable water to cool the dogs. For those who wish to crate their dogs in their cars, all parking space is inside the fenced perimeter. Note that while events are running in Ring #1 the perimeter gate will be closed, and vehicles will not be allowed to enter or exit.

Dog Aggression: All dogs must be kept in an X-pen, crate, in your car, or on leash when not in the ring (this includes the grounds and parking lot). Note that the use of retractable leashes is not permitted on the Paws4Fun grounds. In order to avoid incidents of dog aggression towards other dogs and/or people, please give all dogs lots of room and be aware of your dog’s behaviour at all times. Any dog engaging in aggressive behaviour at any time will be required to leave the grounds. In such cases, NO refunds will be issued.

Ring Etiquette: If you are not entered in a specific event, you are NOT permitted in the ring during the walk-through. Food is not allowed in the ring at any time. Non-audible toys in good condition are allowed in the ring only during FEO runs and may be thrown up to 10 feet.
