Food near the agility ring
We all know that in the ring we are not allowed to have food anywhere on us. We can’t even smell like food! (the exception to this are “Fun Matches”, which are not sanctioned agility trials, and where sometimes all hell can break loose, but its fun to watch …I digress). But did you know that in CPE and NADAC trials, you can’t have food within 10 feet of the ring? I’m surprised that AKC doesn’t have this rule too, with all their rules, and rules for the rules. Anyway, it’s always a best bet to check your pockets before getting in the ring. Dogs are tattletales…they have a way of knowing there’s something in your pocket.

in your pocket and then give him only two of them”. -Phil Pastoret
