1 round freestyle, 2 players, 1 dog, 90 seconds, 18 disc
At Pairs 2 people play with one dog. The team shows their skills for 90 seconds. You can play with 18 frisbee. All 3 judges give a scoore (overall impression) and the middle rating is used. Overall impression = interaction between the players and the dog, creativity, selected music, involving the audience and the visual (group of 3 should form a unit / motto). The Catch is counted and helps the judges in their scoring.
Minidistance (für Overall und Only)
1 dog, 1 player, 4 disc, 1 minute time
The player and the dog are standing in a circle. At the start signal, the player throws the disc over the first line (17 m). If the dog catches the line (all 4 paws must be above the line) the team will be credited 1 point. The player throws the next disc over the second line (17 m). If the dog also catches this behind the line, another point will be credited. Now he throws again on line 1 and then again on line 2. At each catch, a point is credited.
The lines must be processed alternately (left/right). Also, if the dog did not catch. The goal is to get 4 Catches above the line. The last Frisbee must bring the dog back to the player. The player may not leave the circle when throwing. Otherwise he move freely on the field. The time is stopped when the player is completely in the circle and has the disc of the last catch on his head.
The team has a maximum of 60 seconds. The remaining time is converted into points. If the team does not make it within the time, he will be credited with the catches he has won (max 4).
