Some of our events are dog friendly. These such races will be advertised as so.
Control of your dog is required at all times. The rightful owner of a dog is required to have liability insurance (or family insurance) for any damages that their dog may commit, or injuries that the dog may cause. The rightful owner of a dog is the person named as such in the dog’s vaccination book and/or official paperwork. The rightful owner must ensure that the animal is owned (cared for) in accordance with the law. Proof of insurance will be required at registration, without proof you will not be able to run and the entry fee non refundable.
The event will be covered by public liability insurance as standard.
We welcome any breed or cross breed of dog, but they must be at least 12 months old. Swapping of dogs during a race is not permitted.
Bitches in season are not excluded from competing; however, it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that adequate precautions are taken and that they acknowledge full liability. Owners must inform race organisers if they intend to compete with a bitch in season so provisions can be made. For example, they may be asked to start at the back to ensure the smallest number of issues. They will also need to be kept away from the group during briefings and at the start/end of a race.
No pregnant or nursing bitches are allowed to compete. Dogs that have been coughing or have been in contact with infectious diseases within the previous 21 days should not be brought to the event.
Nobody should race dogs that are nervous of humans, as this can cause undue stress to these dogs. It is strongly recommended that dogs receive a vet health check before competing at our event. Any dogs deemed unfit to race by either the race Vet or event organisers must be withdrawn from competition. All races are non refundable and non transferable as with regular (non canicross) race registrations.
