AKC Agility Rule Change

Posted by SUDS on October 3, 2010 at 7:43 PM

These are some of the AKC agility rule changes that went into effect in September.


Table count begins when the dog puts a foot on the table and any position is allowed, so no more sit or down is required. Even if a dog turns and puts 3 feet back on the ground the count continues, but a table fault is given.


The A-frame has been lowered for small dogs.

The tire has been lowered one jump height.

Multipliers for MACH points for 1st and 2nd place are not being removed until next July, not this September as previously announced.

These are the biggies. Go to the AKC site for any additional new rule information.
