Notes to the ZM test
The dog can be recalled in two ways - "come" to sit in front of the handler, or "heel" to come and join the handler at heel position.

Survery of the terrain is made in natural terrain in size of 30x40 steps, or in training ground on hides in the area sizing 80x100 steps.

In the moment the dog sees or smells the helper, his handler stays still and can command the dog to mark the helper. After the dog marked the helper, the handler holds the dog by his collar and commands the helper to step out. From the the distance of about 5 steps the helper provokes the dog and on the command of the judge the helper attacks the dog handler. In the moment of the attack the dog handler releases the dog.

The dog answers the attack with taking the desired action. After the dog interposed the helper, the helper tries to fight the dog shortly and indicates hits. On the command of the judge the helper stops fighting the dog and stands still. The handler recalls the dog and holds him by his collar. Meanwhile the helper runs away from the handler and his dog. When the distance from the handler and his dog reaches 25 steps, the judge gives command to the handler to release the dog. The handler follows the dog running right after releasing him.

After catching up with the helper the dog takes action. On the command of the judge the helper stops fighting the dog and the handler can command the dog to let go. On the command of the judge, the handler recalls the dog, puts him on leash and reports to the judge the end of the defense.
