What is it?

image24

The AKC’s Agility Couse Test (ACT) is an entry level agility event designed to introduce and welcome beginning dogs and their handlers/owners to the sport of agility.  It is a great way for handlers/owners to bond with their dogs.  In addition to demonstrating their dog’s entry level agility skills, handlers/owners will learn some of the basics of the sport, such as how to fill out an entry form, checking in before running, taking their dog in and out of the performance area, and other skills that will assist when moving to regular agility trials (regardless of which venue).
