The object of judging is the interaction between participants and their dogs, their skills of preparation and dog demonstration in the ring.
Obedience Championship will be held in the framework of Eurasia 2017 in Moscow. Many dogs and their owners from all over the world will participate in the competitions! The most obedient dogs will compete in order to get the Champion title in both individual and team scoring!
Dog Dance and Flyball competitions will be held at the show. Flyball is a four-dog relay race between competing teams. Each team must go over four hurdles, trigger a flyball box pedal, catch a ball and then return over all four hurdles to the start/finish line where the next dog eagerly awaits. Two teams of four dogs compete at the same time, each using a parallel 'racing lane' down which each dog in turn runs. The hurdle height is determined by the shoulder height of the smallest dog in the team. The height should be no less than 17.5 cm and no greater than 35 cm. If a run is not completed correctly the dog must re-run at the end of the line (for instance if the dog drops the ball, misses out a hurdle or starts too early, if it doesn’t trigger a flyball box pedal or takes a ball from the basket.? The team of which the four dogs have run the whole circuit without making any mistake is the winner of that heat.
