Reviewing rules, saw something funny.

Hey everyone.

So, I'll be doing helper work in my first trial shortly and I'm just reviewing the rules to make sure I'm in line with the new rules etc.

I saw something funny in UsCA Rulebook

"If the handler, at any time during the protection phase, gives a "down" or "platz" command to the dog, they will be disqualified. "

Page 74 of 145

A pretty strong statement considering the escape starts from the platz

Overall, I love the new rule book! but things like this are funny. Where do I report an error like this?

I read that as well. However, from my understanding you cannot platz your dog to bring him under control.

Frank clarified it on the USCA Facebook: "This is in the "completion/ disarm" section and should not be interpreted to be at the beginning of the escape exercise... Hope this helps"

I like the bit in the FCI Rules where it says something like 'in the basic position the handler must stand in a sportly manner'.

Don't know why but it tickles me

But thats funny 'haha' rather than funny 'peculiar' as me great grandmother used to say.
