    DefaultAgility Peeps Help with Class Time

    What's your guesstimate...

    I'm in the Novice classes with Remington.

    Show starts at 9:00 a.m. There is only one ring.

    Running order (low to high) is as follows....

    Excellent Standard 45 dogs
    Excellent JWW 47 dogs
    Open Standard 9 dogs
    Open JWW 5 dogs
    Novice Standard 7 dogs
    Novice JWW 6 dogs.

    What time do I need to be at the show?

    I'm guesstimating 11:30?

    Help

    I always overestimate...

    I once guestimated and got there as we were walking!!! OOPS. Left the dog in the car, walked and then ran him.

    This is me underestimating - I'd say about 30min for exc std (45sec/dog), and then less, maybe 20 min for exc jww (30sec/dog) - but be aware it could move faster. Maybe 10min-15min for each course building (that's the most convoluted schedule ever...but very nice for exhibitors). Open is going to go super fast - maybe 30 min total from building to end...9 dogs and 5 dogs JWW take NO time at all.

    Ugh I'm horrible at this, but would rather show up early rather than late.

    I am with EMA.

    I have a C-WAGS rally trial this weekend that starts at 9:00, but I we are in the 6th class! I am using AKC rally guidelines for course times but C-WAGS courses are much longer. The judges and stewards and people are much more casual so I my guesstimate is to be there at 1:00 but I bet the earliest I will get in the ring is 3!

    Linda - I agree with EMA. I usually figure 1 minute a dog in Standard and about 45 seconds a dog in JWW. Course changes will add some time to the planning. So based on run time only Excellent and Open would be done by about 10:30. Then add course change time - maybe 15 minutes each and then walk time. Open will all walk together - maybe two walk thrus in Exc - maybe not. 11:30am is cutting it a little close in my opinion because there are variables that are hard to estimate such as the absentee rate. I think 11am might be better. At the most you will be a little bit early. As you know, sometimes things move right along and sometimes it seems to go very slowly. The last trial I was in, the trial secretary sent out a very detailed schedule which was quite accurate and very helpful. I know its some Agility trial planning software program. Our club doesn't use it to my knowledge but maybe the sponsor of your trial does. Might be worth a question to the trial secretary to see what is being used to estimate class times. Betsy

    I'm no good at figuring those things out either..I usually just get there early and watch the other classes..as we usually have a bunch of club members there anyway.

    I'm figuring about 11:00 too. I need time to potty me and the dog, and let him walk around and get used to the place.

    It takes me a good two hours to get there, so we'll plan to leave as close to 9:00 as we can.

    Thanks all for the help!!
