Regular Titling Classes

Novice Agility & Novice Jumpers With Weaves Classes:
       The Novice agility class and the Novice Jumpers with Weaves class are divided into Divisions A and B.  Division A is for dogs that have never acquired any AKC agility title. Additionally, a dog entered in Novice A must be handled by a person that has never put an AKC agility title on any dog, and the handler must be the owner, co-owner, or a member of the owner’s household.

Open Agility Class: 
       Open to dogs that have acquired the Novice Agility or Open Agility titles but which have not acquired a qualifying score towards their Agility Excellent title.

Agility Excellent “A” Class:
      Open to dogs that have acquired the Open Agility title, and to dogs that have acquired the Agility Excellent title but that have not acquired a qualifying score towards their Master Agility Excellent title.

Master Agility Excellent “B” Class:
       Open only to dogs that have acquired the Agility Excellent title, and to dogs that have acquired the Master Agility Excellent title.

MASTER AGILITY CHAMPION title (MACH),

       A dog must exhibit superior performance on the agility course.  Speed and consistency are the two major qualities denoting “superior performance” and therefore they are the basis for the MASTER AGILITY CHAMPIONSHIP program.  In order to acquire the MASTER AGILITY CHAMPIONSHIP title, a dog must achieve a minimum of 750 championship points and 20 double qualifying scores obtained from the Excellent B Standard Agility class and the Excellent B Jumpers With Weaves class.

• Dogs placing first in their class double their championship points.
• Dogs placing 2nd in their class receive 1-1/2 time their standard championship points. (All fractions of points are rounded down.)

Double Qualify (2Q’s)

20 (2Q’s) required minimum

• Dogs qualifying with scores of 100 in both the Ex B Agility Class and the Ex B Jumpers With Weaves Class on the same day.
• Qualifying in both the Ex B Agility Class and the Ex B Jumpers With Weaves Class on the same day equals 1 (2Q).
