There shall be four (4) veterinary checks - before starting the Willingness test then after the completion of each leg.  All exhibits shall be examined by the veterinary surgeon and/or veterinary team, covering such things as the general fitness, temperature, standing heart rate, condition of the pads. (Each bitch must be examined at the first check to ensure that she is not in season).
Prior to the commencement of the 20 km run, a short Willingness test will be conducted (to include a recall) on or off the lead. At the completion of the run and after the final 15 mins rest period, a short Willingness test will be conducted (to include a recall) on or off the lead.
The test shall be a 20 km run to be covered in three legs 8 kms, 6 kms, and 6 kms.
At completion of each leg there shall be a rest period of 15mins., 20 mins., 15 mins.
Handlers shall wear a catalogue number and proceed in single file, in numerical order, following the pacemaker. The dog is permitted to pull slightly but continued lagging may incur disqualification. Handlers are only permitted to handle one dog at any one time.
The distance is to be completed in 2 hours and 35 minutes, including the two intermediate breaks, but excluding the final rest period ie. the test is to be conducted at an average of 10 kms. per hour.
Dogs reluctant to go with handlers are to be disqualified.
Dogs may stop to relieve themselves but handlers and dogs must make up the test time and regain their position in the line. Handlers must carry implements for cleaning up after dogs and must clean up before returning to the test.
After the first 8 kms. there shall be a rest period of 15 mins. during which time the veterinary team, veterinary surgeon and/or Judge shall examine all exhibits. Two or more officials are normally required to assist with the taking of temperatures, looking at pads and recording thereof.
