Judge's dog should be minused 100 for each time a call was requested, and the dog barked three more times, as outlined in #11.B. The judge's dog should stay in for 100.

11.B. Failure To Call Dog - When judge has determined that a dog has opened three (3) times after the first minute without being struck, he/she will ask for a call. If the handler fails to call the dog struck on the next bark, judge will award the next available strike points and minus them. If the dog continues to open he must be struck after the next three (3) barks or the same process will be repeated.
Please prepare yourself and your hound. Hunt the dog, read the Blue Book, and your Good Book!
