    DefaultAgility - yards per second?

    Just wondering what sort of speeds people are getting on standard and jumpers courses? If you have yps for a non-labrador, just note the breed please.

    I'm not pushing Zeke for any speed yet (you can tell in his videos...he's not really pushing) - I just want him to stay on course, but I would like to know what is sort of realistic to expect.

    I think we had a thread for this before because I was wondering too.

    I don't have any of my dog's results handy, so I can tell you. I know that typically Ruger is about 3 seconds over our SCT's, that's why I'm really not running him anymore, he's getting older, the courses are longer and he's slower. Remington is usually well under course time providing he comes out of the tunnels and keeps focused

    I'll check some of my results tomorrow and post the times for you.

    Okay, I found some results in an email from last weekend.

    In the JWW run, Remington ran the course at 2.01 yards per second.
    In the Standard run, Remington ran the course at 1.41 yards per second.
    He is a labrador
    Yes, he does get more pumped up and runs faster in Standard. Jumpers really bores him.
    He had very bad sniffies in JWW (I had to go get him away from the good smells)
    He had four off courses in the Standard run.
    Obviously we did not make the SCT in either of these classes, but I just divided his time into the course yardage to get his yards per second

    Miles is usually around 4 YPS. I will have to go get my results to see. He is usually a floating around there.

    That helps....hopefully more people will respond too.

    I think Zeke's Qing run was approximately 4yps, but it was a really flow-y NADAC style course (ASCA and NADAC - peas in a pod)....AKC might have been slower (turns and such).

    I have no clue how to figure it out

    Brody is slow
    Sally is fast

    Take the yardage for your run, and divide your dog's time into it.

    So if the course was measured to be 133 yards, and your dog ran it in 59.73 seconds... 59.73 divided by 133 = 2.22 seconds. At least I think thats how you do it??

    So actually if Remington ran a bunch of off courses, he did a course much longer than what was posted for yardage, so technically he's not as slow as I posted

    okay the Cavs NQ runs were between 2.4 and 2.9..the one Q in a a jumpers run was 3.3 yps and probably required multiple weave attempts.

    OK - Recon's Std Novice run on Sunday was about 2.45 YPS with 2 refusals and a wrong course. The BC that won was about 3.38 YPS. The course was sort of up and down twice. I will start to watch for Shamrock because he is slower. When we are really moving we just make Excellent standard course time so the extra 5 secs for Preferred is a big help.

    Ambers fastest EX A jumpers was 6.15 YPS and fastest Standard Ex B run was 4.78 YPS. Typically she is about 5.7-5.8 in Jumpers and 4.5 yps in standard. I make her hold her contacts and make her wait even after the judge says go on the table (she learned what "go" means and used to self release). She has been known to bark/scream the entire course. She has also been known to break weave poles and tires and chutes, or to slide off the far side of the table etc.
    She is a 5 year old Lab as of yesterday.
    Light, "weedy" individuals are definitely incorrect; equally objectionable are cloddy lumbering specimens. Labrador Retrievers shall be shown in working condition well-muscled and without excess fat. Females should weigh between 55 and 70lbs and Males between 65 and 80lbs. Height females 21.5 to 23.5 inches males 22.5 to 24.5 inches at the withers.
