    AKC ACT (Agility Course Test)

    Sunday, June 9, 2019 beginning at 8:00am

    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. There are two levels of ACT events – ACT 1 and ACT 2. ACT 1 is designed for the beginning level dog to show beginning sequencing and performance skills. ACT 2 requires an increased skill level shown by the additional obstacles to be performed. 

    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 the 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.

    For more information about the Agility Course Test (ACT 1 and ACT 2), please contact Pam Rape: ramarfarm@hotmail.com
