Week 13 ~ July 5, 2020 ~ A Minuet

The Week 13 Garden League game shall be a Minuet.



The Minuet typically features a numbered sequence with interesting handling challenges. Course time is 50 seconds. The dog will repeat the numbered sequence until scoring time expires OR 6 POINTS HAVE BEEN EARNED.

Each completed sequence will earn the dog one point. When scoring time expires each obstacle that the dog performs without finishing the sequence will be converted to a decimal value. [Hence if the dog does four sequences and the first two obstacles when time expires, then the dog’s score will be 4.2.]

When scoring time expires the clock continues to run until the dog assumes a down position. The dogs time is measured from the moment he breaks the plane of the first obstacle until the instant he assumes the down position.

On any fault (dropped bar, wrong course, or missed weave pole or entry) the point for the sequence under-way is lost, and the dog must be directed to begin the sequence again, from obstacle #1. If a bar is dropped it remains down for the duration of play; but the dog must be directed through the uprights on subsequent tries.

The Minuet is scored Points, Then Time.
