RESULTS
By the end of each exercise, participants are placed in a score table, according to the number of points they have received. 1st place winner gets the points equal to the overall amount of participants, and the and a last person in the list gets only 1 point.
For example, if there are ten teams participating in an exercise, 1st place grants 10 points, and last place – only 1 point.
"Dog biathlon" exercise score is calculated out of time results shown by each participant.
"Guard duty" exercise score is calculated out of points received, minus penalty points for mistakes, made by a participant and a dog during an exercise.
"300 m obstacle course overpassing" exercise score is calculated out of: − time results shown by a participant, − points received for quality of overpassing the obstacle course, − penalty points received for mistakes made by a participant and a dog.
Resulting points in the "Dog biathlon" exercise are determined by the time result shown by the last finishing participant in the relay race, and additionally by the place a team won and the overall amount of teams.
If there are some teams with the same resulting time, dispute will be resolved by the time results, shown by participants during the four stages. If this happens, advantage will be give to a team that has best time result during the first stage (then the 2nd, 3rd, 4th ).
Preliminary score is shown to the participant and the spectators right after the end of an exercise.
A participant disqualified from one exercise is allowed to take part in two other exercises. But if the disqualification happens twice, the participant is removed from the whole contest (as well as for dog harassment).
