-Every competitor must ensure that their dog does not attack another dog or competitor. If a dog becomes aggressive in the start area, the competitor is obliged to leave the start area.
-During the competition a competitor can express a request to overtake by shouting out “TRAIL”. The competitor about to be overtaken cannot oppose this request. Runners must let others know when passing and what side they will be passing on .
-The competitor must start and finish with the same dog.
-It is strictly forbidden to drag the dog. Dragging a dog is when the dog is behind the runner and the lead is stretched. It has to be admitted that, during a technical course of several kilometers, it is possible that the runner overtakes the dog, or the dog hesitates. In this case, a certain tolerance will be applied.
-Remember we are in a public park not everyone loves dogs like we do, keep yours under control and on a lead at all times.
