The endurance trial is a 20 km track which your dog has to be able to run next to your bicycle. The minimum age for entering the trial is 16 months and your dog has to have passed the Federation hip dysplasia scheme and be awarded a grading of A. X-rays can be done from a minimum of 12 months of age. The endurance trial is the first step towards breed qualifications for your dog. Training for this is not done during training hours on Saturdays. The instructors will help you by advising you how to train for this trial on your own and members often meet to train for this trial together.
