Premiums for trials that Dave Behrens is secretary for are available on his web site.


Exhibitors please read

Effective January 1, 2010, exhibitors are no longer required to provide proof to Trial Secretaries that their dog has a valid jump height card as part of the check-in process. Furthermore, this change eliminates the need for a copy of the jump height card to be submitted with an entry form.

More details on the changes are available here.

    Since I keep forgetting these, here are the AKC height divisions and the associated rules from the AKC agility regulations.

    Section 4. Height Divisions, Measurement, Measuring Devices.

    Dogs may be entered in any height division they are eligible for but may only enter each class offered once per day. If a dog is entered in different jump heights the owner must submit separate entry forms, one for each height.

    The following jump height divisions shall be used in all trial Regular classes:
    8 Inches: For dogs 11 inches and under at the withers.
    12 Inches: For dogs 14 inches and under at the withers.
    16 Inches: For dogs 18 inches and under at the withers.
    20 Inches: For dogs 22 inches and under at the withers.
    24 Inches: For dogs over 22 inches at the withers. Dogs may not be entered in this class if they are 22 inches and under.
    24 Inch Choice: Dogs may be entered at this height at their owner's discretion if their measurement is 22 inches and under at the withers.

    Owners are responsible for entering the proper height divisions. Exhibitors are responsible for verifying the proper jump height is set prior to running. Handlers may opt to enter in a higher height division for all Regular titling classes, but not in a division lower than their proper height division.

    If the dog's height at the withers exceeds the maximum allowed for the jump height which the dog has entered, the dog shall be moved-up into the proper jump height if the dog was measured prior to their run. In no case may a dog be moved down in height based on the judge of record's measurement at a trial.

    Dogs that run in a height division lower than their proper division will be eliminated. Judges reserve the right to measure dogs they believe might belong in a different division, and any dog whose entry in a given division might be questioned.

    Exception: Owners/Handlers that have in their possession (on the trial grounds) a permanent or valid temporary Jump Height Card for the dog in question, issued by the AKC Agility Dept., are exempt from being measured and the judge shall accept the measurement that is listed on the Jump Height Card.
