Briefing

Tunnel Jacks is played like the children’s game of Jacks. The bounce of the ball is represented by performance of the straight tunnel in the middle of the floor. Then the dog will pick up onsies (one point); bounce again and pick up twosies (two points); and so forth until sevensies, or time expires.

Jumps are 1 point; and the u-shaped pipe tunnel is 3 points. An obstacle may be performed no more than twice in the same pick-up. Back-to-back is allowed only on the u-shaped pipe tunnel.

ON ANY FAULT in a pick-up, the dog must be directed to “bounce” (do the tunnel) and then reattempt the pick-up that was faulted. Faults include:

  • Dropped bar (out of play for the game)
  • Entering the bounce tunnel with more or less than the number to be picked up
  • Doing any jump back-to-back.

When time expires or when the dog picked up sevensies, the dog must proceed to the tire to stop time.

Time begins when the dog first enters the bounce tunnel. Time ends at the table. Note that the tire is not live and has no point value unless time has expired or when the handler directs the dog to the tire.

Tunnel Jacks is scored Points, Then Time.

Course time is 60 seconds.
