The Kennel Club Board has approved a change to the regulations for agility which will come into effect on 1 January 2021. This change came about following a proposal put before the Agility Liaison Council meeting held on 16 January 2020.
The regulation below has been amended to minimise variations in the see-saw equipment by providing a set specification for dimensions with no range of values, subject to suitable tolerances.
Amendment to Regulation H(1)(B)3.m. See-Saw.
This obstacle will consist of a plank firmly mounted on a central bracket. The length of the plank must be 3.66m. The width should be 254mm must be 295mm minimum and 305mm maximum. The height measured from the ground to the top of the plank at the central bracket should be 610mm minimum and 685mm maximum must be 610mm. The maximum distance from the pivot point to the top of the plank should not be more than 100mm. The last 914mm from each end should be a different colour to indicate the area with which the dog should make contact. The plank should have a non-slip surface with no slats. The See-Saw must start to tip and then touch the ground between 2-3 seconds after a weight of 1 kilogram has been placed in the middle of the down contact area.
