Look at this guy go!

I loved watching him go! Even with the little jump confusion. 

 

I do wonder how he would go in outdoor settings and variable weather but this was very enjoyable to watch one running and jumping about.

I was genuinely concerned he was going to crash in parts :scared:

I loved the tunnel under his handler’s legs though. :laugh:

I know you must mean that those with less traditional breeds are encouraged to compete and the focus is more on competing than on winning, both of which used to be the case in Australia but not so much these days.

But I am always proud that the ANKC is much less bigoted than the US agility authorities in that we allow unpedigreed purebreds and mixed breeds (mutts) to compete in agility and other dog sports ( on the proviso that they are desexed.)

To be eligible to compete in Agility, your dog must be:

  • 15 months of age or older.
  • Registered with the American Kennel Club or listed with the AKC Indefinite Listing Privilege (ILP) program, which allows unregistered dogs of registerable breeds to compete in AKC Performance and Companion Events.Mixed breed dogs can be registered through the Canine Partners program to be able to compete.
  • Spayed or neutered dogs are eligible to compete.
  • In sound health and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Thanks for that info, dogsfevr I wasn't aware of that! :)  Being sensible is spreading all over the world! I couldn't get your canine partners link to work but I found all the info Here
