Beat the clock (Fun Event)
The objective of this game is for the team to collect as many points and bank it in before the time runs out. A standard course time of 50-60 seconds will be given. The Scoring System is 1-2-3-5 system.
The dog and handler begin in the center of the clock where the dog must perform the tire that begins course time and perform a series of obstacles on the course. Time will start when the dog completes the tire. The team will strategize the collecting of points. The Team can choose to bank-in the points at any point of the course to ensure all those points
collected are bank-in and recorded. Any points collected after the expiry of the time and not banked-in will be forfeited. Banking-in requires the dog to be on the table (all 4 paws on table) to register the points collected. Faults are assessed for dropping bars and missed contacts. Refusals will not be called.
Scoring: Beat the Clock is scored points then time with the highest score winning.
There are two height categories – Mini and Open. The top 3 teams from each height category are awarded trophies.
