In the unfortunate instance of a re-run being necessary for any reason, do try to remain positive and understanding. This can occur due to timer failures or other equipment problems, or other issues related to a dog not completing the course within the rules. (An identifiable reason must be determined for a re- run to occur. It’s not given just because the handler didn’t like the time, or the dog didn’t run on it’s own...) If a re-run is offered, take enough time to rest your dog as needed and try to look at is as if you just received a free practice run on the previous one that didn’t count! While everyone would like for every run to take place without incident, there are a lot of things that can go wrong and occasionally, they do. Try to remain positive!
