used for the past 2 nationals as we have found it works
really well and give both handler and dog a feel for what its like to run under
pressure representing the team at nationals, it also allows everyone a chance to
try out for the Victorian team for the 2014 Agility Nationals in Queensland.
Selection will be based on individual performances of Masters Agility Courses.
There will be 4 heats run over 2 separate dates.

The ANKC Ltd Rules for The Conduct of Agility Trials will be used to decide
the results with the following differences:-
A disqualification will incur 50 penalty faults. However the dog should
continue and complete the course as correctly as possible as further faults
under the standard rules will be accumulated as they occur and further
disqualifications will each incur a further 50 penalty faults.
NOTE: A dog will score the 50 fault penalty on each occasion that it goes
off-course. No regard is to be taken of how many "out of order" obstacles it
takes on each occasion.
A dog that is withdrawn from the ring, or fails to complete the course for any
reason, will incur a score of 200 penalty faults. The maximum faults that a dog
can incur is 200.
Results will be determined by ANKC Ltd scoring i.e. Individual performances
will be recorded with Clear Rounds, Course Faults, Time, Faults and Penalty
Faults being incurred and totaled.
