Weaving poles
The first pole must be on the left of the dog, the second on the right and so on.

Each incorrect entry will be penalized with a refusal (5 faults). For further errors a dog should only be penalized once, with a fault (5 faults). Every mistake in the weaving poles must be corrected immediately. Back weaving (more than 2 gates) will result in elimination.

The obstacle must be completed correctly, failure to do so will result in elimination on the next obstacle.

Long jump
The units of the obstacle are evenly spaced and in ascending order to make a jump that is 0,40 to 1,50 m. long.

"S" : 40 to 50 cm (2 units), "M" : 70 to 90 cm (3 o 4 units), "L" : 120 to 150 cm (4 to 5 units)

Walking through, running past, jumping in from or out to the side and not traversing the complete obstacle will be penalized with a refusal (5 faults).

Banking or knocking down one of the units, as well as a foot or feet landing between the units will be penalized with a fault (5 faults). Casual contact will not be faulted.

Spread jump
Judged in the same way as the single hurdles

Combination jump with two or three hurdles

Each hurdle that is part of the combination is judged separately. A fault or a refusal can be incurred on each element. Should the dog get a refusal on one of the elements, then the whole combination must be restarted. Failure to do so will result in elimination.

The hurdles can be set up in a straight line or any other variation. Combination jumps can be negotiated only once during a test.
