With Regards The Tux Yarding Challenge Event:

Please note that judges should not be taking a mandatory two points off competitors who change sides after the sheep come off the bridge. It has not been passed as a ruling and points deduction is at the discretion of the judge.



At all dog trials at every centre and club in New Zealand it is mandatory that "All classes and types of dogs entering trial grounds must have Ovis Certificates of no more than 30 days prior to trial."

This approved Council recommendation,without exception, is to be strictly enforced and applies to all dogs, competing or otherwise, present on trial grounds.

Dogs are to remain in vehicles until certificates have been checked.
