3 Dog Team Agility

DSC_0111Each three dog team MUST consist of at least one Mini dog  (not a Maxi dog running Mini height) or they will be assessed a 5 second handicap.

In 3 DOG TEAM Agility a numbered course will be set by the judge, and the dog must complete the course as quickly and fault free as possible.

In 3 DOG TEAM Agility, time + faults of the 3 dogs on the team will be combined for a total score.

Lowest score of the 3 combined team dogs will determine the WINNER of the 3 DOGTEAM AGILITY award.

1st Dogs time 24.56 2nd Dogs time 28.03 3rd Dogs time 45.10
0 Faults + 0 seconds + 1 Knocked Bar 5 seconds + 2 Off Course 10 seconds
Total Dog Time 24.56 Total Dog Time 33.03 Total Dog Time 55.10
