The topic of collars always raises questions: The FCI examination regulations clearly regulate this: The single row, loose fitting large link collar must be worn throughout the trial. For the tracking phase, a dog may wear a tracking harness or a vest in addition to the required loose fitting large link collar. A leash must be carried for the duration of the trial. It may be out of sight or worn by the handler with the clip on
the side opposite to the dog’s working side.
In order to comply with the German Animal Welfare Act, we recommend the use of a train stop/stop ring.
