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.
Any dog that has not earned a title in an AKC Agility class is eligible to participate. 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.
In addition to showing their dog’s entry level skills, exhibitors will learn how to fill out an AKC entry form, check in at the ring, take their dog in and out of ring, handle their dog while being judged, and other information that will help them when they move on to AKC agility trials with their dog.
Requirements: Dogs must be 15 months old to enter these events. Dogs do not need to be AKC-registered at the time of entry. Dogs that are registered/listed with AKC can earn titles for ACT1 and ACT2. See more information on the AKC website.
Schedule: For all ACT events, the lecture will begin at the time listed, immediately follow by the judging session of both rounds of ACT 1, then both rounds of ACT 2.
Registration: Complete the entry form in the premium and mail it in with your payment. Bella Vista Training Center will review all this information with you prior to the event, so don’t worry if you do not know or have all the info. Day-of-show entries may be accepted if the event is not full. For details, contact Stephanie Capkovic at firstname.lastname@example.org.
