Would you like to see how your dog would perform in a small trial atmosphere, that is more relaxed and friendly? Would you like to try to earn your first AKC agility title?

Join us for our AKC ACT Tests with 

Judge Patricia Dunseith!

 

The Agility Course Test (ACT) is an entry level agility event designed to introduce and welcome beginning dogs and their handlers to the AKC sport of agility in a fun, relaxed setting.  Any dog that has not earned a title in an AKC Agility class is eligible to participate. There are two levels of ACT events – ACT1 and ACT2.

  • ACT1 is designed for the beginning level dog to show beginning sequencing and performance skills.
  • ACT2 requires an increased skill level shown by the additional obstacles to be performed.

Who Can Participate an ACT Event?

Any person with a dog that meets the requirements for a regular agility trial can enter these events (requirements available on www.akc.org).

  • Dogs must be 15 months of age or older.
  • Dogs do not need to be AKC registered at the time of entry.
  • Dogs cannot have achieved any AKC Agility title other than an ACT 1.
  • Dogs and handlers can skip ACT 1 and start right out in ACT 2.
  • Dogs that are registered/listed with AKC can earn titles for ACT1 and ACT2.
