A new version of the rule book has been posted. Very little has changed and those changes are underscored. The Rule Advisories have been integrated into the new rule book. Information about Judge Workshops are also included. There are now requirements for clubs and judges to stay current. These requirements do not need to be met in 2019. Judges and clubs will be reviewed for compliance after the end of 2020.

Rat Games Rule Book

There will be a Judge Workshop at For The Love Of Dogs in Mendota Heights, MN on December 27 to December 28. On December 29, there will be practice runs for the new judges to gain some experience. If you are interested in seeing what the games are about, we are looking for dogs to do practice runs after lunch on December 27 and all day on December 28-29. Please contact us at wearemorefun@ratgames.com if you are interested in coming out to practice.

If you are interested in becoming a judge, a judge workshop is the fastest way to becoming fully approved. Contact us at wearemorefun@ratgames.com for more information.

Interested in becoming a Rat Games judge? The Judge Workshop is the fastest way to get to approved status. There will be 2 days of discussion and practice preparing you to either judge under a Supervising Judge or judging on your own as a Provisional Judge, based on experience.

You will learn about rules, philosophies, how to deal with issues, and much more. You will also gain some experience how the games are played, how they are judged, how they are scored, how titles are earned, etc.

After the two day workshop, there will be a two day trial on Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20.

Is your dog aging or does he have a permanent and stable injury? If so, you are eligible to enter VETERAN class of any game where a tunnel is not a required element. Veteran class has all the rats but they are all hidden no more than one bale high or one bale in from the edge of a structure. This is a great division for the dog that still loves to play but is a bit wobbly on their feet.

From Jan at Superpup,LLC:

We are excited to be the first ever club to host a Rat Games trial on the East Coast!!! We will be running in the cooler air of the evening on July 18th and are starting with two games – Mad Hatter (10 rats on the course) and Tunnels (for the dogs that love their tunnels!). Each game is a point accrual game so there is no “level” to enter – you just keep entering and accruing points until you earn your next title.

If you want to join us, please go to www.ratgames.com and register your dog with a RG number (they have to track your points somehow!) and then, of course, read the rules and the game descriptions.

You can get the premium off of the Rat Games web site under the events calendar, or from my web site (www.superpup.site). And, as always, to enter you can either mail your entry in or enter via PayPal/credit card through the web site as you would for a typical trial here.

Hope you can make it! Questions? Contact me at 4superpups@gmail.com. Please don’t ask me to describe the games or define the rules, though. You really, really need to go to the web site to sign your dog up anyway so just read it all there.

More trials will be coming your way in the near future!
