Rules of McCann Team Challenge
Each team must consist of 3 dogs and 3 different handlers. The same handler may not run 2 dogs on the same team (because of the 3 dog relay)
If you do not have a team, you may enter individually and a team will be drawn for you.
Each team must have at least 2 dogs that jump the same height. You can mix Specails, Veterans and Regular dogs. For example, a team can consist of a 16" regular, 16" Special and 26" Regular dog.
All dogs must compete in all 5 classes to receive points
All courses will be judged with Masters rules (any dog is eligible to enter, even if they are not in Masters at Sanctioned events)
The scoring for the event will be provided in a handout before the competition begins (for an example, see scoring for the USDAA DAM event)
