NEW AND IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR 2021
Please fully read so you are prepared!

In 2021, we will be introducing a third level for competition.

PRELIM (You may know this as the original “Novice Level”)
NOVICE (New Criteria)
INTERMEDIATE (Unchanged)
Please check “Trial Information” for further details.

There will be a transfer window for you to decide what level you want to compete in from 2021 onwards. This window opens 1st December 2020 and closes on 31st December 2020 (It will not affect the 2020 Championships).
If you are currently entered in a 2021 trial and would like to change the level you are competing at, please EMAIL detectiondogtrials@gmail.com to confirm. We will then amend your entry.
• Dogs currently competing in “Old Novice” may move down to Prelim if they have not previously won a trial or scored 90 points and above at any trial
• Dogs currently competing in Intermediate may move down to Novice if they have not previously won a trial or scored 90 points and above at any trial (OR will be working on a Tier 3 odour. If you then enter on a Tier 1 / 2 odour at Novice, you will not be entered for competition)

Odour Tiers
Odours will now fall in to one of three tiers, please check “Trial Information” for further details.
