The Agility Course Test

ACT1 is an entry level test that is open to all dogs that have not earned a title in any AKC Agility class and that meet the age and physical requirements for a regular AKC agility trial. Dogs must have two passing ACT1 scores in order to earn the ACT1 title. Both passing scores may be obtained under the same judge/evaluator. 

• Minimum allowable score required to qualify = 85 
• Performance will be judged as set forth in Chapter 5, Sections 4, 5 & 6 with the following exceptions: - Run-outs and Refusals will not be judged - More than 3 attempts at the next correct obstacle (ascent side of contacts) will result in a Mandatory Elimination and will be signaled with an “F” by the judge/evaluator. - 
The 4 –Paw rule is not in effect.

The course must be completed in less than 60 seconds. 
ACT1 Minimum Obstacles Requirements: • Quantity =10-12

  1. We love watching you and your mom work together, Mabel! You both did a fantastic job!

  2. Hari OM
    Fantabulous!!! I too love watching your teamwork. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. That was fun watching you run that course. We would probably get distracted by all the smells like you did in the fist video. It was good that you finally listened to your mom and finished the course. We would have failed for sure.

  4. Mabel you are obviously a superstar! (But did she really call you a "little turd"?)
    Toodle pip!

  5. You are wonderful Mabel. Good job


  6. You did beautifully, Mabel and Mom. How do you know which item in the course to go to next? That change would so confuse the Momster.

    1. There are numbered cones at each obstacle and you get time to walk the course without your dog to familiarise yourself

  7. WE loved watching this..mabel and mom did just great. Mabel sorta reminds me of our donks they do it when they are ready.....mags

  8. You did an amazing job! I think another dog must have left some juicy gossip in a pee mail message at the beginning of the first video. ☺

  9. Bravo bravo bravo Mabel OMCs OMCs I am in awe of your agility and skills and running. That big tall blue and yellow thing gave my tummy the heeeebeeeejeeebeees but look at you go girl. Well done and tell your mom she is some serious agility skills to keep up with you.

    We hope the Granddaughters wedding was nice yesterday

  11. Niiiiice job there, girl! Congrats on doing better the second time around.

  12. You did SO GREAT!! And what a big improvement on your time! Our mom would get SO turned around. Honestly. She could get lost in a lunch sack.
    What does "get your nose up you turd" mean? Hahahahaha! That would so totally be me!!!!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  13. Look at you go! We couldn't do anything of those stuff. We are so impressed. You get better every time. A tip of the tail to our little champion.
