All tests must be performed on leash. Dogs should wear well-fitting buckle or slip collars (including martingales) or body harnesses.
- Body harnesses should not restrict the movement of the dog.
- Special training equipment such as pinch collars and head collars are not permitted. The leash should be made of either leather or fabric.
- Retractable leashes may not be used in the test.
- The BBTD Test only allows buckle collars or slip collars, and body harnesses. But the only body harness that they currently allow is the EasyWalk harness.
