The Relaxed Fit Option is designed for dogs recovering from injury, new dogs, older dogs, or dog breeds/body shapes that may struggle with regular height. Dogs in the Relaxed Fit option can jump one or two jump heights lower than their regular height and will perform the lower option for the A-frame (5’1”), one less board for the long jump, and will not include spread jumps on course. If a competitor chooses to run Relaxed Fit in one class, they must run Relaxed Fit heights in all classes they have entered in for the same trial. If a dog changes jump height within a particular class, including changing from Relaxed Fit to Regular or vice versa, the gains made at the lower height will not count toward the title under the separate programs. **Qualifying runs in Relaxed Fit do not count towards a title in the Regular height program. **However, qualifying runs in the Regular height do count towards gains in the Relaxed Fit program if you decide to change in the future.
