    DefaultMaddie's new agility Excellent AKC title with video

    Maddie and I have been working through lots of weave issues. She would complete the course perfectly and then pull out at the tenth weave pole. She has earned her excellent standard title a while back and we have been trying for what seems like forever to get her jumpers excellent title. We competed in our first AKC trial in about 6 months, just trying to get the title. I had really given up hope and felt like it may never happen. I know that my feelings were impacting our performance in the ring. Well, Maddie and I did I she now has her AKC Excellent Jumpers title. I cried like a baby after the run and Maddie and hugged. I think she knew how pleased I was.

    Maddie earned a first place finish!

    Thanks for watching.

    What a great run! I love agility.

And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”

    Congratulations, very fun to watch. Thanks for posting the video. Great job. Question... are there always so many hurdles in a course, or does it vary?

    A jumpers AKC course is made up of jumps (panel, triple, double, and single), weave poles and tunnels. Average course length for a excellent course is 18 to 22 obstacles. Most of these will be jumps. A standard course is made up of weave poles, contact obstacles (table, a-frame, teeter, dog walk), jumps and tunnels including chutes.

    Different organizations have different rules about obstacles. DOCNA and NADAC don't have any weaves on course in a jumpers run.

    It is definately difficult to keep everything straight if you are running more than one venue.

    In AKC any error such as a wrong course or refusal is a NQ or non-qualifying run. A refusal is when the dog approaches the correct obstacle and then in the last third before taking the obstacle either stops, starts to go to another obstacle, or hesitates before taking the obstacle. Also if the dog does not complete the obstacle in one fluid motion it is considered a refusal and the dog will not qualify.

    Sorry for such a lenghty explanation but, agility is my passion

    If you are intersted there are other agility videos of my girls in the obedience /trackin forum.

    Thanks for asking!!

    Hugs,
    Lisa
