It is the Paws4Fun Agility 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, however, an administrative fee may be retained on all refunded entries. 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.

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.

Facilities: The trial will be held outdoors on the Paws4Fun Agility grass fields and will proceed rain or shine. Portable washrooms are available.

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.
