German term or phrase: Breitensport
Hier ist eine Beschreibung des Wortes im Zusammenhang mit Hundesport (NICHT der Text den ich uebersetzen muss):

Breitensport ist ein Mehrdisziplinen Bewerb. Er setzt sich aus vier Disziplinen zusammen: Unterordnung, Hürdenlauf, Slalom und Hindernisbahn. Wobei beim Hürdenlauf und Slalom auch der Hundeführer über die Hürden und durch die, ähnlich einem Riesentorlauf, gesteckten Stangen laufen muss.

English translation:canine tetrathlon
Explanation:
Since your context refers to "vier Disziplinen"

tetrathlon
"...it comprises the four disciplines of..."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrathlon
(or quadrathlon if you don't mind Latin prefix plus Greek suffix)

If, however, Phil's reference is to be taken as definitive, Breitensport is in fact a pentathlon.
