Implementing legislations - Obranářský speciál SKP Ostrava
SKP Ostrava issues the implementing legislation for the purpose of a sufficient explanation organizer´s ideas about implementing various parts of the contest, both to competitors, perpetrators (helpers) and referees. This legislation is Contest Proposition´ s integral part.
Obedience is given by valid NZŘ ZVV 1 (rules). The organizer reserves the right to use the specific obstacles.
Building in the field
- Identification of the offender is assessed only till the moment before the handler walks towards his dog. Identification after is no longer taken into account.
- 1st perpetrator: It´s evaluaten the dog's ability to repel an attack, especially his determination, stopping effect level and the real effectiveness of the treatment against the perpetrator regarding to fact that dog is muzzled. To evaluation has to be incorporated also exploring the perpetrators. Dog has to wait in commanded position in distance from two to five steps, waiting until the handler finish his inspection if perpetrator doesn´t have weapons. Dog has to carefully monitor the situation during whole process.
In case, that handler would be attacked during the inspection, situation continues according to task and inspection is not repeated. Problems during inspection, such as unjust attack or inattention while guarding the perpetrators is punished by referee with loss up to 15 points.
- 2. perpetrator: Transition from first perpetrator to action against second one is reflected in evaluation too. Referee can punish problems during transition by loss up to 5 points, rest of the points left is for evaluation of action itself. It means that referee evaluates dog´s ability to block perpetrator to prevent his escape and the real effectiveness of the treatment against the perpetrator regarding to fact that dog is muzzled. Only dog that acts completely uncompromisingly against perpetrators can get maximum amount of points.
Building in the object
Identification of the offender is assessed only till the moment before the handler tells the referee, that dog is drawing attention and already found the perpetrator. Also handler decides this way, for how long and how he lets the dog draws attention to perpetrator. Handler has to remember time limit too.
Identification of perpetrator:
Clearly and distinctly means dog´s intensive barking. It´s also good, when the dog is in contact with perpetrator during barking. Mentioned way of identification is counted for full amount of points only when dog actually found the person.
Overflow at errand:
It´s evaluaten the dog's ability to repel the attack, especially his determination, stopping effect level and the real effectiveness of the treatment against perpetrator.
Elimination of riots
Perpetrators may perform a physical attact in various ways, but during one race they perform attack to all dogs similarly. Perpetrators are requied to lead an attack on handler and in the same time avoid dog´s attack on their person, fe. by setting some real obstacles. Core of the task is to repel perpetrator´s attack by determinated and fierce bite into protective clothing. Important is maximalize stopping effect even before physical contact between perpetrator and handler.
Dog is awarded with the full score when makes described intervention before perpetrator is able physicaly reach handler. Dog has to deal technically with physical obstacle first. And then rest of the action is taking place before perpetrator´s physical contact with handler. Only then dog receives full score. Word technically is very important there, because psychical hesitation leads to loss of up to five points.
Major hesitation and late action, that would lead to the contact of handler and perpetrator, means loss up to 10 points.
Loss of the other points depends on the proportion of deviation from the requirements.
Purpose of this discipline is definitely not to prove your strenght against the perpetrator or conversely. There will be physical contact for sure, but it ends with slight struggle without grips, strikes or self-defence kicks. Most important is particular procedur and action of the dog.
Detention of perpetrator – guideline for disciplines 2.1, 2.2, 2.7, 2.8
Bites are evaluated especially according to vigorosity of action, strenght of the bite, dog's will to achieve bite, way of solving problems and determination to make perpetrator harmless.
They are requied to examine dogs perfectly. They should act to reveal all the weaker and stronger points in dog´s work, but definitely not at the cost of any injuries. Perpetrator has no prescribed style, it behaves within the limits allowed by the dog. Perpetrators can use evasive action anytime before the bite. During detention (according to 2.2, 2.8) they can´t be passive. Perpetrators shows clearly the will to fight with their movements, stance and gestures.
Dog handler can release his dog at the moment, when perpetrator enters chosen space and after unsuccesfull call for halt. Handler can follow his dog right after release.
There are two ways allowed for release:
After dog handler reaches the point 2 – 5 steps from his dog, he can command hit to release perpetrator. Dog independently guards the perpetrator till signal from referee. Dog handler uses command heel and then waits with dog for additional instruction from referee which ends the discipline.
Dog handler runs towards dog and commands „Let go, heel.“ Dog follows the orders, sitts at handler´s leg and guarding the perpetrator until referee gives a signal. After the signal, parpetrator steps three steps back. After that referee ends the discipline.
Dog handler has 3 commands and can connect the name of the dog with command heel only during the first attempt. Dog handler can´t go into the physical touch with his/her dog during the whole discipline.
Scoring: 10 points. Whole amount of points is lost in case of mistakes in discipline procedure, or in case of letting go after physical intervention of handler. Action before the letting go is evaluated separately. Correct form of letting go is very important and referee has to insist on prescribed way.
Blocking the person:
The purpose of this discipline is detention of a person, that is clearly and visibly surrending, while beeing chased by dog. Perpetrator throws away the weapon, remains motionless with hands folded to the body, conforming to the requirements from dog handler. After perpetrator´s surrending, dog handler is allowed to once command dog to let perpetrator go. Only allowed form is usage of name of the dog + command.
Any other command forms are punished with loss up to 10 points (depends of their intensity). Only bite command can be used while sending dog to chase perpetrator. It´s not allowed to use there building command (under punishment of annulling the whole discipline). Dog has to block a person on the spot until beeing appealed or till arrival of the handler. Dog has to block a person from such a distance to be able to solve every situation with immediate bite.
Mistakes like direct bite attack on perpetrator, complete ignoring the perpetrator or leaving him in distance more then 10 steps are evaluated with 0 points.
If the dog guard the perpetrator for a while, but then decides to attack him, it´s considered as a fault and referee can punish it by loss from 10 up to 20 points points, depending on the time during which was perpetrator guarded before.
If dog attacks perpetrator after arrival of dog handler or during appeal call, it´s considered as a fault and referee can punish it up to 10 point, depends on intensity of attack and the subsequent dog´s handling.
Insufficient guarding of perpetrator is considered as a fault too. Dog is standing next to perpetrator, but with lack of interest. Referee can rastrict such a fault up to 20 point.
Cases when handler is not able to appeal dog from perpetrator or has to use physical contact are considered as fault and punished by loss up to five points. Only dog´s handling is observed, bite during appealing is not counted here.
Physical contact of dog and perpetrator (except bite) isn´t considered as a fault. Dog can fe. rely paws on perpetrator, etc. May also bark or circulate around perpetrator, but in no bigger distance then ten steps.
