    DefaultAKC Agility Scoring Question

    Okay, can someone tell me about AKC Agility scoring...

    You get your results listed like this:

    Time TFlts RFlts WCFlts TbFlts E/F

    Time is your course time.
    TFlts = Time faults (over time?)
    RFlts = refusals?
    WCFlts = Wrong Course?
    TbFlts = Table Faults?
    E/F = What??

    Am I correct on these, and what is E/F?

    Would E/F be for things like missed contacts? (elimination/failure to perform obstacle correctly?) I'm guessing.

    E is for elimination and F is for failed. Dogs can be eliminated for pooping or peeing on course or leaving the ring. Failing is typically done when so many faults are recorded that an F is written as failed.

    Most Dogs that don't Q are Elim, and they aren't pooping and peeing in the ring or leaving, so I'm confused. Elim must be general term for NQ?

    I don't understand what failed would mean. I've never had a dog marked as F. But have many many times gotten Elim

    Found it. E is for Mandatory Excusal for the following...

    The following faults call for mandatory excusal. The
    scribe sheet shall be marked “E” and the dog and handler
    are excused from the ring.
    1. Excessive handling, harsh commands, or corrections.
    2. Unsportsmanlike conduct.
    3. A dog that leaves the course area and discontinues
    working.
    4. A dog that discontinues working the course and
    is unresponsive or out of control.
    5. Exceeding the maximum course time.
    6. Dogs fouling (includes vomiting) the ring at
    any time.
    7. Four Paw Rule. If a dog commits all four feet on
    any portion of a contact obstacle and fails to negotiate
    that obstacle, the judge shall instruct the
    handler to move the dog on to the next obstacle.
    If the handler re-attempts the obstacle, the dog
    shall be excused.
    8. Inappropriate collar on dog discovered after the
    dog has started its run.
    9. A handler that runs the course with handling
    aids.
    10. Training in the ring including corrections, purposefully
    touching the dog in order to get it to
    perform an obstacle or petting the dog on the
    Pause Table or contact obstacles to reinforce a
    behavior.
    11. Dogs biting handler, beyond playful nipping.
    12. Exceeding the fault limit of the class. Fault limits
    may be applied only if both the judge and Trial
    Chairman agree that it is in the best interest of
    the trial to do so. If applied the fault limit shall be
    either three (3) or four (4) separate faults that
    would normally result in a score of less than 85.
