Change of Entry Regulations for AKC Agility

Effective February 1, 2017
Chapter 1. Regulations for Agility Trials
Section 21. Change of Entry. In addition to Move-ups as described in Chapter 1, Section 20 entries may also be changed as noted in this section. A dog which has been entered in a Novice “A” class for which it is not eligible to be entered in due to class restrictions on the dog or handler may be moved to the Novice “B” class under the following conditions:
The request for the move must be in writing and presented to the superintendent or trial secretary at least 30 minutes prior to the start of each trial. The request must state the reason and justification for the move from a Novice “A” class to the Novice “B” class.
After the close of entries a dog may be moved down in their class level (i.e., Master to Excellent). The request for the move to the class for which the dog is eligible must be in writing and submitted to the superintendent or trial secretary at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the trial.
If a VMO or Field Representative at a trial measures a dog into a height other than what they entered, the entry may be changed from Regular to Preferred or from Preferred to Regular, as long as the dog has not run any classes that day. If the dog has already run, the change may be made for the next trial day(s). The exhibitor must provide the Trial Secretary the AKC Agility Measurement Form when requesting the class change.

Beginning January 3, 2017 Clubs can offer the same FAST course for all levels. This will really speed up how long these classes can take to build, walk and run. There will be more flexibility in how Sends can be designed so look for changes and new challenges.

At a club's discretion, any of 3 levels of FAST courses may be combined into one course with embedded Sends or may be run as separate courses.

Following is a summary of the changes:

New Send Distances in Open & Excellent/Master: 

Novice – 2 obstacles required at a minimum distance of 5’ to a maximum distance of 10’

Open – 2 or 3 obstacles are required at a minimum distance of 5’ to a maximum distance of 20’ depending on the number of obstacles used. If only 2 obstacles are used in the send then one of the obstacles must be between 10’ and 15’. If 3 obstacles are used then at least one obstacle must be between 10’ and 15’. No more than one obstacle may be less than 10’ and no more than one obstacle can be greater than 15’.

Excellent/Master – 3 obstacles are required at a minimum distance of 5’ to a maximum distance of 25’ with a change of direction or obstacle discrimination. No more than one obstacle may be less than 15’ and no more than one obstacle may be greater than 20’.

Additional changes:

All class levels will be allowed to walk together  at the club’s option with Send lines noted for each level.

All obstacle point values will remain the same for the different class levels

9 to 12 weaves poles will be required in all levels of FAST

Running Order is up to the the club to decide.

The Send’s can be embedded all together or there can be multiple Send lines on the course. 

3 tunnel passes will be allowed in FAST, however, only 2 tunnel passes in any one Send

Point value structure for the Send remains the same. Minimum of 5 points and maximum of 15 point

One dual pointed obstacle will be allowed on the course.

A tunnel and only a tunnel in the Send portion of the course may be done a second time without an obstacle in between.

The finish obstacle may be POINTED. If the finish obstacle is pointed it MUST be a jump and bi-directional.

The Tire is NO LONGER allowed on the course.
