Dogdancing Club Czech Republic invite you to the Open European HTM & Freestyle Championships on the 29th and 30th September 2012 in Prague, Czech Republic.
Each participating country can enter a National Team consisting of three or four Heelwork To Music and three or four Freestyle dog and handler teams.
Each participating team can have a named reserve (travelling or non-travelling) in each discipline. The reserve will only compete should one of the other participants on the team withdraw a dog from competition, at the latest during the morning briefing on the day of the competition.
Should a country enter less than three competitors in a discipline, they will still be able to compete for a place in the individual finals.
The competition is open to all dogs with or without a pedigree.
