Bell Creek Agility & Obedience is pleased to offer AKC Agility Course Testing Saturday April 21, 2018.
There will be two rounds of Agility Course Testing offered at this event. Preregistration ends on April 21, 2018. Day of registration will end on Saturday April 21, 2018, at 5:45 p.m. with a general briefing and 8-minute walk-through to follow. Crating will be in the warm room or dogs will have to be crated in their cars. While dogs may run any of the AKC jump heights, they are encouraged to run the height they would at a regular agility trial to better prepare them.
The Agility Course Test (ACT) is an entry level agility event designed to introduce and welcome beginning dogs and their handlers to the AKC sport of agility. The rules governing an AKC performance event apply to ACT events.
There are two levels of ACT events – ACT1 and ACT2. ACT1 is designed for the beginning level dog to show beginning sequencing and performance skills. ACT2 requires an increased skill level shown by the additional obstacles to be performed. Two rounds of each will be offered.
In addition to showing their dog’s entry level skills, exhibitors will learn to fill out an AKC entry form, check-in at the ring, taking their dog in and out of ring, handling their dog while being judged and other information that will help them when they move on to AKC agility trials with their dog. Dogs must be 15 months old to enter these events. They do not need to be AKC registered at the time of entry. If you pass AKC will notify you as to how to register your dog and get your new TITLE and CERTIFICATE !
