Toss and fetch is a fast moving event in which dog and handler teams attempt to score as many points as pssible by completing as many catches as possible within a certain period of time.

1. T & F competitors are allowed 60 seconds (1 minute) and one disc to score as many points as possible...A second disc may be left close by if needed to replace the first due to damage. Time will not be stopped during a disc change. A 10 second warning will be given. Any disc released after time is called will not count.

2. Competitors may chose to throw from either end of the competition field, but once time has begun no changes may be made.

3. The dog and handler must start behind the throwing line. When the team is ready, the throwing line judge will signal the T & F judge. When the T & F judge is ready, the throwing line judge will cue the team to start with "Go", and time will begin. Competitors may send their canines downfield, or throw, anytime after the start signal is sounded. Time will start as the dog starts across the throwing line.

4. The handler must always throw from behind the throwing line. Once the first disc is thrown the handler can move freely around the field if needed, but must always return to behind the throwing line to throw the disc. A throw will not be scored if the thrower steps over the throwing line prior to or during the release of the disc...A foot fault will be called by the throwing line judge.

5. To receive points, catches must be completed by the dog while the disc is in the air. Points recieved will depend on which zone the catch is made in. If a dog catches a disc with paws in more than one scoring zone, the catch will be scored as if it were made in the higher scoring zone (only one paw needs to be over the line to count).

6. Scoring is based on the following point scale. No points are awarded for catches under 10 yards.
Zone 1 (10-20 yards - 30-60 feet) 1 Point
Zone 2 (20-30 yards - 60-90 feet) 2 Points
Zone 3 (30-40 yards - 90-120 feet) 3 Points
End Zone (40+ yards - 120+ feet) 5 Points
An additional half-point bonus will be awarded for each successful catch the dog makes with all four paws in the air.

7. There is no out of bounds, but catches must be made within the roped off area.


1. For all junior handlers (12 years and under) and micro dog competitors (dogs under 16") scoring will be based on the following point scale.
Zone 1 (0-10 yards - 0-30 feet) 1 Point
Zone 2 (10-20 yards - 30-60 feet) 2 Point
Zone 3 (20-30 yards - 60-90 feet) 3 Points
Zone 4 (30-40 yards - 90-120 feet) 5 Points
End Zone (40+ yards - 120+ feet) 10 Points
An additional half-point bonus will be awarded for each successful catch the dog makes with all four paws in the air.

2. Time will be stopped if the dog starts to go to the toilet...And will begin again where left off once the mess is cleaned. Time will NOT be stopped if the dog leaves the competition field...You have the full 60 secs to get them back and throw again.
