AGILITY RULES

2017 Mini Review of Agility & Games Rules

The National Agility Committee Chairperson, Peter Dynan has confirmed the majority
of the Committee and Member Bodies do not believe a full review of these rules is
necessary at this time, but rather a mini review which can be dealt with at a confer-link
meeting in 2017. This review would cover the collapsible tunnel, use of video,
changes to rules that are causing considerable issues in any State or Territory along
with typographical, numbering and minor changes for consistency purposes.

Updated Paragraph
Scoring

A disqualification will incur 50 penalty faults. However, if the dog goes off course it should be taken back to the obstacle missed and re-attempt it before continuing the course, the dog should then continue and complete the remainder of course as correctly as possible as further faults / disqualifications under the standard rules will be accumulated as they occur. Further disqualifications will each incur another 50 penalty faults, to a maximum score of 200 penalty faults.

Replaces
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.
