Pipe Tunnel

This obstacle should have a diameter of a minium of 600mm and should be a minimum of 3m in length.  The tunnel may only curve in a single direction.


Positioning - it is recommended pipe tunnels should always be fully extended when in the desired shape.


Judging - Refusal for running past the line of the front of the tunnel or entering the tunnel and coming back out of the same entrance.


Note - A dog jumping over the tunnel when attempting to complete the obstacle is a refusal.  However, when not attempting the tunnel as the next obstacle, a dog jumping over the tunnel during a round is normally dealt with as wrong course and therefore an elimination.


Elimination - For entering or touching the wrong entrance to the tunnel.
