RULES AND PROCEDURES FOR THE “PBKC MUTT DERBY 2021”

1. No professional racing dogs or aggressive dogs may be entered. Do not enter a dog you cannot control.  Please do not enter vicious dogs. You are expected to have your pet under control at all times.

2. A limited number of entries received will be accepted. Entries must be accompanied with a $20 registration fee. Fees are non-refundable after entry has been confirmed. Trophies will be awarded to category winners.

3. PBKC prohibits dogs from certain areas of the facility. Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times and owners must clean up after their dogs.  

4. All dogs must be present at least 30 minutes before their race times. Be on time. After checking in the dog and it’s handler, they will be placed in a large holding area where they shall remain until called to the race. Shelter and water for the dogs is available in this holding area. 

5. Dogs will be categorized by weight into three classes. We anticipate four heat races for each class. Winners of each heat will be eligible for the FINALS in their class. An overall champion will be determined by a final race of the three category winners. THE PROGRAM IS EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETED within 3-4 hours. Please be available for the FINALS if your dog wins its heat race.

6. Failure to comply with any of the above rules will result in DISQUALIFICATION and we reserve the right to refuse any entries.
