regulations for agility trials and agility course test actAll dogs must be on a lead or securely crated when not in the ring. Bring a crate with you so your dog has a place to relax while you walk the course. Bring a copy of your AKC registration if you have one. AKC registration is required to receive the ACT 1 and ACT 2 titles but is not required to participate in the event. Qualifying certificates will be awarded.

All applicable regulations in Regulations for Agility Trials will govern the conduct of ACT events. They will apply to any person and dog entered. For more information, see: http://images.akc.org/pdf/rulebooks/REAGIL.pdf

All dogs fifteen (15) months of age or older may enter provided they have not earned any AKC Agility Titles. Dogs must be physically sound as described in Chapter 1, Section 3, Paragraph 7 of the Regulations for Agility Trials. In order to acquire the title certificate and have the title added to a dog’s record, the dog must be registered/listed with the AKC. Canine Partner applications may be accepted at the test by the judge/evaluator and submitted with test results. Dogs that are not AKC registered/listed may participate and their performance will be recorded by the AKC under a temporary recording number. This temporary recording number will be e-­mailed to the owner and must be used when entering subsequent ACT events and when the owner registers/lists the dog. Note: Temporary recording numbers may only be used to enter ACT events.
