DODT Nose Work League Rules & Information

Join your Nose Work friends for some winter sniffin' fun by joining our Winter Nose Work League!  Each week teams will have the chance to run some searches with a different theme that will not only be FUN, but will help you prepare for Spring trials.  Points will accumulate each week and the top 3 teams at the end of summer will earn some prizes and awards.

We've built in some accommodations for those that cannot attend every week:  (1) you can have a substitute take your place or (2) your team can take a "bye week."  The league fee covers four (4) weeks, so you do not miss out anything...but fun! 

 

 

  • All team members must join the Facebook Group for this event.  All details will be posted in the Facebook Group.

  • Searches will be run indoors or outdoors.

  • The searches will be designed and judged by DODT Nose Work instructors. All rulings and determinations of these officials are deemed final. This is a game - no bad sportsmanship shall be allowed.

  • This League consists of 5 dates (TBD).

  • Dates, times and locations are subject to change.

  • NO REFUNDS for missed or changed league sessions will be issued once the first league session has started. 

  • The cost for the league is $100/dog.  This covers 4 weeks of league.  All Teams may choose to take a “buy week.”  If there is a week that several members cannot make it to, the team can use that as a buy week.  If a team decides to run all five (5) weeks, an additional $25 fee will be charged for fifth week.  If a Team runs all 5 weeks, the lowest team score from all of the weeks will be dropped in the final tallies.

  • Participants may join on their own or as part of a team.

  • A team consists of four (4) dog/handler pairs. A maximum of 10 teams will be allowed to register per session.

  • Teams may substitute a member if one is unable to participate on a given date. A 24-hour written advanced notice to info@dooverdogtraining.com of the substitution is required. If the substitute is kept on the team (i.e., replaces an original member), notification to the League Coordinator is required. Teams may use alternates as temporary substitutions.

 

NOTE:  We have included an alternates registration form.  This will be posted for teams to contact alternates for any weeks a Team Member cannot make it.  Do Over Dog Training will not collect any fees from the alternates, it is up to the Teams to work out payments with the alternates.

  • At each session, dog/handler pairs from each team will participate in one to three searches consisting of Nose Work Games.

  • Maximum of one dog per handler.

  • Scores for only 3 dog/handler pairs from each team will count for any given league match (the least desirable score is discarded).

  • Results will be submitted and scored with winners and placements tallied.

  • The Overall League Winning Team shall be the team with the most points at the end of four (4) league sessions.

  • Prizes will be awarded for the league’s top 3 teams at the conclusion of the League’s 5 sessions!

  • Awards will take place immediately following week 5 searches.  Location to be determined.
