AKC Agility

Novice Fifteen and Send Time (FAST) Class course map designed by Pam Johnson for the Aug 2014 Hyattsville DTC AKC agility trial. Rules for the FAST class are found in the AKC Agility Regulations.

In a demonstration of  Indy’s versatility, here are Debbie and Indy again a few weeks later qualifying in an AKC agility trial in the Novice FAST class.  This is an agility course in which the handler is given a set amount of time to execute a course of his/her own design complete with a ‘Bonus’ section which must be performed at a distance from the handler.  You can hear the judge calling off the earned points for each obstacle as it is successfully completed.

Come and Sit. Stay and Play. ℠
