Briefing

This Jumplers course must be run in numbered order. The dog will earn bonuses for successfully performing distance challenges. These bonuses will be deducted from the dog’s total score.

Two bonuses are indicated on this course:

  • 5 Point Bonus ~ Handler remaining behind the green line, send the dog into the #6 pipe tunnel. The handle is allowed to step over the line after the dog is completely in the tunnel.
  • 10 Point Bonus ~ Handler remains on the opposite side of the red line send the dog to perform jumps #10, 11 and 12.

A bonus is lost if the dog drops a bar, takes a wrong course obstacle, or if the handler steps over the containment line.

There is no penalty for not attempting the distance challenges. The handler may opt to run portions of the course or the entire course, as a straightforward Jumpers round.

Scoring

Jumplers is scored Time, Plus Faults, Less Bonus. The team with the lowest score wins.
