Video: International Test Order (IPO III)
Section A: Work on the trail
Highest score 100
Voice command "Search"
- Keeping track = 80 points
- Items (7 + 7 + 6) = 20 points
Search for the lost at a distance of about 800 steps, at least 60 minutes of someone else's trail, three objects.
Alien footprints contain four right corners. The expert determines the order of the tracks when taking into account the available trace area. The tracks can be laid in different ways. It should not be that, for example, on each track, individual corners and objects are at the same distance or the same distance.
The place of leaving the tracks should be well marked with a sign that sticks into the ground to the left of the place of leaving. After the laying trail has been at the point where the trail leaves for some time, he moves along the prescribed path and places the first object after about 100 steps, the second object in the middle of the second or third side, without interrupting the movement. The third item is placed at the end of the track. The one that made the trail is removed a few more steps in the direction of the direct, then to go back to the side. The handler can let his dog follow the trail freely or on a 10 meter leash. Both cases are scored the same.
If within 20 minutes after approaching the place of "leaving" the track, the end of the track is not reached, the expert should stop working.
Before the trail is laid, the trail must show the items to the expert or the person in charge of the trail. Only well-used consumer items may be used which have been previously carried by the laying track for at least 30 minutes. in a pocket and having a length of 10 cm, a width of 2-3 cm, a thickness of 0.5-1 cm.
All items are numbered in such a way that the start numbers correspond to the item numbers.
While laying the trail, the handler and the dog must be kept in cover. The smell of traces when placing objects should, if possible, not change. The trail cannot shuffle or stop. Objects should not be laid out next to the track, but on it.
The trainer at this time prepares his dog to work on the trail. After the call, he introduces himself with his dog to the expert and informs if his dog picks up objects or indicates. Both actions at the same time: take and indicate - are wrong. At the direction of the expert, the dog is slowly and calmly brought to the place of leaving the track and work begins. Any coercion should be avoided before, at the start of trail work and during the entire duration of trail work. When starting work, give the dog enough time to trace. Anything that arouses in the dog the urge to storm forward should be avoided. The dog should calmly take the trail with the lower instinct. When the dog starts to follow the trail, the handler continues to stand and allows the leash to slide over the arm. He follows his dog and maintains a distance of about 10 m and then,when the dog is working freely. The leash can sag if not released from the hand.
If the dog has found an object, then it must immediately take it or convincingly show it without influencing the trainer. When taking an object, she can stop, sit down, or also go up to the trainer. Any forward movement with the apparatus or taking in the prone position is wrong. The indication can take place while lying down, sitting or standing. The handler drops the leash and goes straight to his dog. He raises the object high, indicating that the dog has found him. From this point on, the trainer with his dog continues to work on the trail. After completing the trace work, the found items should be shown to an authorized expert. The trainer is allowed to approach the dog that took the object. Further running of the dog with the apparatus is a mistake.
The leash can be attached to the chest harness for searching, if not used, then on the collar. The right to search freely remains.
The use of a free additional belt is not permitted.
The presence of a leash is the right of the trainer.
Sniffing the signpost is not a mistake.
If the trainer deviates from the track by more than the length of the leash, then the work should be stopped.
If the dog leaves the trail and is held by the handler, the judge encourages the handler to continue; in case of repetition, work is stopped.
Erroneous landing, barking, frequent whirling around corners, prolonged cheering, "impure" taking or pointing, loss of an object are punished with a withdrawal of up to 4 points. Re-landing, heavy breach, taking the trail mainly with the upper instinct, rapid movement along the trail, emptying, mouseing, and the like result in a removal of up to 8 points. Up to 4 points can be deducted for an incorrectly taken or incorrectly indicated item. For not found 1st and 2nd items, 7 points are removed for each, for not found 3rd item, 6 points are removed. 4 points are deducted for taking or pointing to a thing that was not laid by the one who laid the trail.
