AKC Premier Agility Classes - Eligibility Change

The following change to the Agility Regulations will become effective June 1, 2018.

The Board VOTED to approve a recommendation to amend Chapter 11, Section 2, of the Agility Regulations to allow all dogs to be eligible to enter the Agility Premier classes. Prior to this change, Premier classes were limited to dogs eligible to compete at the Master level.

Chapter 11. Premier Class
Section 2. Eligibility. The Premier class has a single class level. Dogs eligible to enter Novice, Open, Excellent or Master level classes may enter the Premier class.

AKC has further clarified that if you reach Masters Level within the qualifying period for AKC Nationals, all Premier points earned within that qualifying period will apply toward the dog's qualification, even those earned while the dog was not yet in Masters.
