There are MicroDog Divisions in Skyhoundz Classic (MicroDog Open & MicroDog Sport), DiscDogathon (MicroDog Bullseye, MicroDog Freestyle, MicroDog Pairs Distance/Accuracy, MicroDog Spot Landing, MicroDog TimeTrial) and a MicroDog Class in Xtreme Distance.
To be eligible to compete in the MicroDog Division or Class, a dog must be less (<) than 17 inches as measured from a level table/platform to the withers, as determined by Skyhoundz officials.
MicroDog teams are required to use (any model) Hyperflite Pup discs in competition.
MicroDogs must be measured at all Skyhoundz events until they receive a permanent Skyhoundz Measurement Card (SMC).
SMCs can only be issued at a Skyhoundz Last Chance Qualifier or Skyhoundz World Championship where canines will be measured on a level table/platform using a standard American Kennel Club (AKC) measuring jig.
To be eligible to receive a SMC, a dog must be less (<) than 17 inches tall, as measured from a level table/platform to the withers, as determined by Skyhoundz officials, and over two years of age.
Once a dog receives a SMC, they will no longer be required to be measured to compete in any MicroDog event as long as they show their SMC at the event or appear on the list below.
