For reasons of fairness, it is mandatory that the two Flee Attacks be done in the same way, by the same decoy. The decoy must have the same attitude for all Flee Attacks.
– The decoy will start at 10 m from the departure line. The Judge will sound the horn to start the exercise so no time is lost.
– Ideally, engagement is between 30-40 meters.
– Decoy must accelerate when dog is within 10 m and keep this pace until impact.
– The Decoy will escape without looking back or trying to avoid. He will be armed with a revolver and will fire two shots while the dog is biting.
– He will defend himself vigorously, but not brutally, to test the dog’s bite.
– When the handler gives the end of exercise command, the Decoy will immediately remain totally motionless.
