Rules for conducting tests and competitions in the general course of training (OKD) and protective guard service (ZKS). -I PART

RULES FOR CONDUCTING TESTS FOR GENERAL TRAINING COURSE (OKD)

General Provisions

OKD tests are carried out on a training ground equipped with the necessary projectiles: boom, blank fence, inclined wall in the form of the letter "A", barrier, ladder. Dogs of any breed are allowed to test. The age of the dogs is from 10 months.

According to the general course of training, the following are checked:

1. The movement of the dog next to the trainer.
2. The attitude to the stern, prohibiting the command "Fu".
3. Disposition.
4. Return to the place.
5. Approach to the trainer.
6. Stand, landing, laying (checked in the complex).
7. Demonstration of the dental system, attitude to the muzzle, transition to a free state.
8. Overcoming obstacles.
9. Controllability of the dog when fired.

Tests for dogs with a height at the withers of 42 cm and below are carried out according to these standards, taking into account changes in the size of obstacles and the distance for control. These dogs are tested for growth prior to testing.
The handler controls the dog in accordance with the commands established by these rules by voice and gesture.

The handler must give the command by voice and gesture immediately after the judge's instructions. It is allowed to influence the behavior of the dog for 3 seconds. A judge controls the actions of the trainer during the tests.

Projectile testing is permitted.

Before the start of each skill, the trainer with the dog takes the starting position (the dog sits parallel to the trainer's left leg, without falling over).

Treats rewards and dog play between skills are not allowed. After completing the skill, stroking the dog is allowed, as well as encouraging it with a voice.

In summing up the final score for a skill (complex), the judge should distinguish between additional actions of the trainer that affect the dog's performance, and the actions of the trainer that did not entail changes in the dog's performance.

All actions of the trainer, distorting or supplementing the normative command when demonstrating a skill (complex) and affecting the dog's performance are assessed as additional effects on the dog and are penalized, each separately under the item “other violations” of this skill in the assessment sheet.

The score in points for the trainer is not separately set, but at the end of the tests the judge gives a qualitative assessment of the trainer's work (ex., Good., Satisfactory). For rough treatment of a dog, the trainer is removed from the test.

Depending on the points awarded at the end of the tests, a diploma of 1, 2, 3 degrees is awarded. The overall assessment of the dog's performance is made up of the total points scored in accordance with the final table of points scored, subject to the performance of each skill.

The work of the dog is assessed by the judge for each skill or complex in accordance with the table of penalty points. For incorrect and indistinct actions, penalty points are deducted from the highest mark for a skill (complex).

The tests begin with a report. The trainer with the dog approaches the judge and reports on readiness.

When accepting tests, the behavioral features of each breed are taken into account. Dogs that get out of the handler's control during the test are removed. Nearby and Handler Approach skills are assessed throughout the test.

TEAMS AND THEIR EXECUTION

1. The movement of the dog next to the trainer.

Voice command:  "Nearby".

Execution :

At the direction of the judge, the handler begins to follow a route of approximately 50 steps. In the process of movement, the trainer, at the signal of the judge, changes the pace and direction of movement, and also demonstrates turns on the spot. The trainer's command to the dog "Near" is given only at the beginning of the movement, when turning and changing the pace. The dog should walk tightly and naturally next to the trainer, without crowding him, at his left leg (the dog's shoulder at the knee level), maintaining the correct position at different rates of movement and when turning. When stopping, he sits down on his own at the trainer's left leg, in parallel with him, without falling over.

The skill is considered unfulfilled if the dog deviates in any direction more than the body (the appearance of a gap between the trainer and the dog more than the length of the body).

2. Attitude to the stern, prohibiting the command "Fu"

The skill is tested in two stages.

First stage

Voice commands:  "Take a walk"  and gesture with the right hand,  "Fu".

Performance:

The skill is tested on an area of 4 mx 4 m, where several noticeable pieces of delicacy are scattered by the assistant in advance. The number of thrown pieces must be known to the judge and trainer.

A trainer with a dog without a leash, at the direction of the judge, approaches the area where the food is scattered, stops 2 meters from the area, sends the dog to this area with a “Walk” command and gestures, and continues moving in the direction of the food along with the dog.

At the direction of the judge, after passing the section with a delicacy, the trainer calls the dog up with the command "Come to me" and with a gesture. When the dog tries to take food, the handler can give the forbidding command "Fu". If the command "Fu" sounded after taking the food into the mouth, then the dog at the first command given must throw it away (the first command given is not penalized).

The skill is considered unfulfilled if the dog did not throw food out of the mouth after two forbidding commands or ate it.

Second phase

Team: "Fu".

Performance:

At this stage, the skill is checked (after prior agreement with the trainer) in one of the following ways:

  • prohibiting the dog from taking food from the hand of the trainer;
  • prohibition to take any item.
    In the first method, as directed by the judge, the trainer:
  • approaches the judge with the dog and stops in front of him (fixing command “Sit” is allowed);
  • with his hand (on an open palm) gives several times one piece of delicacy;
  • when giving the next piece, gives the command "Fu";
  • after exposure up to 5 sec. removes his hand with a treat;
  • resumes giving delicacies.

At the resumption of giving delicacies, the trainer is allowed to give no more than two of any permissive commands.

If, in the process of performing the skill, the command "Fu" sounded after taking the food into the mouth, then the dog, at the first command given, must throw it away. One repeated "Fu" command is allowed.

If the dog took the food after the given command "Fu" and threw it out, then the dog is penalized under the item "other violations" - by 1 point. The skill is considered unfulfilled if the dog did not throw the food out of the mouth or eat it after two forbidding commands.

In the second method, the trainer sends the dog for an object thrown by him. Then, at the direction of the judge, gives the command "Fu", according to which the dog must throw the object out of the mouth.

One repeated "Fu" command is allowed. It is allowed to give no more than two commands to resume a skill. The skill is considered unfulfilled if the dog did not throw the object after two forbidding commands.

8. Overcoming obstacles.

Obstacles:

blind fence -1.5 meters; slide -1.6 meters; rigidly fixed athletics barrier - 0.75 m or 0.40 m; boom; stairs; trench (dimensions are indicated in the appendix).

The obstacles are divided into 3 groups:

Group 1  - vault: a solid fence 1.5 m high, a slide 1.6 m high;
Group 2  - without vaulting: trench, rigidly fixed, athletics barrier with a height:

0.75 m for dogs over 42 cm at the withers
0.40 m for dogs 42 cm or less at the withers.

Group 3  - movement along the projectile: boom, stairs.

Voice commands: "Forward", "Barrier", "To me", "Near", gesture with the right hand.

The trainer chooses one apparatus from the 3 groups presented and calls them to the judge. The order of overcoming obstacles can be determined by the handler.

When overcoming shells - a solid fence, a slide, an athletics barrier - the trainer uses the "Barrier" command and a gesture with his right hand. When overcoming shells - ladder, boom, trench - the trainer uses the "Forward" command and a gesture with his right hand. The movement of the trainer with the dog between the obstacles is carried out by the command "Near". By agreement with the judge, the trainer can send the dog to the obstacle, stopping in front of him in a 3-meter zone, or right off the bat, without sitting down the dog. All projectile running surfaces must have a non-slip coating.

Performance:

After the trainer announces the route of movement and the sequence of overcoming obstacles to the judge, the trainer, at the direction of the judge, begins to move.

After overcoming the obstacle by the dog, the trainer, bypassing it on the right side, can immediately start moving with it on the command "Near" to the next obstacle or use the command "To me" before starting the movement (the dog must sit at the trainer's left leg).

The dog must overcome the track and field hurdle with an unsupported jump - without touching it. On the boom, the dog enters the ladder, walks quickly along the boom and exits the ladder on the other side.

The handler follows behind or next to the dog along the boom. The dog climbs the stairs on one side and walks off the other without delay. The handler follows the stairs without getting ahead of the dog.

It is not allowed to provide the dog with any mechanical assistance in overcoming obstacles.

The number of attempts to overcome any obstacle is not regulated, but each repeated attempt is penalized. Overcoming all three selected obstacles is imperative. The minimum test score for overcoming any selected group of shells is 10 points.

Overall mark for overcoming obstacles (14-10 points) penalty points
every repeated command one
movement without command one
touching the l / a barrier with paws one
slow movement (over an obstacle) one
every retry one
every lead by the dog trainer one
other violations (each) 1-2

9. Controllability of the dog when fired.

The controllability of the dog when firing is tested when performing any skill, except for the skills:

- "Attitude to feed";
- "Overcoming obstacles" at the time of overcoming shells;
- "Assortment" at the moment of taking the object into the mouth.

The skill, during the execution of which the controllability of the dog on the shot is checked, is established by the judge and applies to all dogs in the event.

The control of the dog's control when firing is carried out immediately in the process of performing the skill (without repeating it). The shot is made, at the direction of the judge, from the starting pistol at a distance of 15 m from the dog, unnoticed by it. If the dog stops performing the skill after the shot, the trainer continues to control the dog on his own.

The score for the behavior of the dog when firing is not separately charged.

The shot itself is considered as a complication of the skill and is included in the overall score according to the table of penalty points for the skill being tested.

Rules for holding competitions for the general course of training (OKD)

COMPETITIONS
General

Dogs of all breeds and having an OKD diploma of any degree are allowed to compete. The age of the dogs - not less than 12 months - is determined on the day of the competition.

Competitions for dogs with a height of 42 cm at the withers and below are held according to these standards, taking into account changes in the size of obstacles and the distance for control. The growth of such dogs is checked before the start of the competition. Places among dogs with a height at the withers of 42 cm and below can be determined as in a separate group.

The handler controls the dog in accordance with the commands established by these rules by voice, gesture, voice and gesture.

Command by voice, gesture or voice and gesture must be given by the handler immediately after the referee's direction. It is allowed to influence the behavior of the dog for 3 seconds. A judge controls the actions of the trainer at the competition. Projectile testing is permitted.

Before the start of each skill, the trainer with the dog takes the starting position (the dog sits parallel to the trainer's left leg, without falling over).

After the skill has been completed and its judging has ended, stroking the dog is allowed, as well as encouraging it with a voice. Treats rewards and dog play between skills are not allowed.

All actions of the trainer, distorting or supplementing the normative command when demonstrating a skill (complex) and affecting the dog's performance are assessed as additional effects on the dog and are penalized, each separately under the item “other violations” of this skill in the assessment sheet.

In competition, handler errors are assessed according to the penalty points table. The accumulated penalty points are deducted from the maximum assessment of his work - 50 points. The work of the trainer is taken into account only when two or more dogs have exactly the same marks: equal amounts for each skill.

Depending on the points awarded at the end of the competition, a diploma of 1, 2, 3 degrees is awarded. The overall assessment of the dog's performance is made up of the total points scored in accordance with the final table of points scored, subject to the performance of each skill.

The dog's performance is assessed by the judge for each skill in accordance with the table of penalty points. For incorrect and indistinct actions, penalty points are deducted from the highest skill score.

Competitions begin with a presentation. The trainer with the dog approaches the judge and stops 2-3 meters away from him, introduces himself and clearly reports on his readiness for the competition.

Dogs that get out of the handler's control during the competition are removed.
