K9 Frisbee Tiny Dog Category
Beginning in 2021, a “Tiny Dog Category” will be permanently added to the K9 Frisbee Toss & Fetch Worldwide League to help give little dog Teams a leg-up in scoring Club Points.
Tiny Dog QUALIFICATION:
Any dog measuring 40 centimeters (15.75 inches) at the withers or LESS will qualify as a Tiny Dog (TD) in K9 Frisbee Toss & Fetch.
The “Withers” is the spot at the base of the neck where the shoulder blades meet on a dog.
To measure height, start at the top of the withers and run the tape down to the ground. The tape should be parallel to the front leg and perpendicular to the ground to get an accurate measurement.
To qualify, a Club Captain must measure a Tiny Dog each season and post the height, in centimeters, to their Club’s Roster in the Google Score Sheet.
Tiny Dog BONUS POINTS:
In addition to any regular weekly Division Handicap a Team is entitled, a Tiny Dog will receive one (1) TD Bonus Point for every catch scored in a round. Consequently, the scoring zones for Tiny Dogs will be:
- 0 to 10 yards: 0 points (1 point for Juniors)
- 10 to 20 yards: 2 points
- 20 to 30 yards: 3 points
- 30 to 40 yards: 4 points
- 40 to 50 yards: 6 points
“Air Catches” with all four paws off the ground, will still earn an additional ½ point.
