A numbered course will be set by the judge, and the dog must complete the course as quickly as possible.
There will be two divisions in the Tunnels class:
- CLASSIC: Over 18 months
- YOUTH: 6 Month to 18 months (not entered in the TRIATHLON)
“OPEN” WILL BE COMBINED WITH “INTERNATIONAL ” FOR THE TUNNELERS EVENT
