About the exercises

​These files contain helpful notes for attaining the different titles. These notes are provided to help exhibitors and trainers but do not replace the official rules. The information in this document, including sketches, is drawn from the International Trial Rules for Rescue Dog Tests of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and the International Rescue Dog Organisation. There are unfortunately some errors in the English translations of the rules, and these may be reflected in our notes. If you have any questions, ask the judge before an exercise.
