New Agility Leashes

Last year during a competition I was corrected, over the speakers actually, for having Poncho's tug toy attached to his leash. Supposedly you are not allowed to bring toys into the ring.

I was pretty sure that the rules didn't imply toys but only treats so I checked the Danish regulations for 2011 and this is what it states:

You will be eliminated if

  • you bring treats into the ring
  • you carry a treat bag
  • toys or treats are dropped in the ring

There is absolutely no mentioning of toys attached to leashes whatsoever. Also you are aloud to carry a toy in your pocket as long as isn't visible. 

To avoid any further misunderstanding this season I made my own agility leashes. I am 100 % certain that leashes made out of fleece are acceptable ;)
