The American Kennel Club is allowing "virtual" ACT 1 trials until the end of the year. Agility Course Test is a program designed to test new dogs for readiness in agility competition. The Level 1 course includes Aframe, jumps, table and tunnel. Virtual ACT 1 trials are eligible for qualifying scores and a title!
Here's how it works:
Book a Virtual ACT 1 private lesson with one of our instructors on the weekend of July 17-18-19, 2020. Morning spots with Elizabeth Evans and Friday evening with Windle Ewing.
When you arrive, one of the ACT 1 courses will be ready for you in the barn.
The instructor will help you walk the course and answer any questions.
The instructor will videotape your run(s) and provide the 5 second table count.
You may attempt the course as many times as you'd like in the 25-minute lesson.
If you complete it successfully and still have sufficient time remaining, the instructor will rebuild the course so you can walk and run a different ACT 1 course.
Qualifying scores on two different courses are required to complete the ACT 1 title.
Optional, if you want to have your scores recorded by AKC for titling:
In other words, dogs may participate (for fun and practice) in ACT 1 without being registered with AKC.
