Agility Rules Ankc
Register your agility dog with DOGS NSW. If your dog is not a pedigree with ANKC/DOGS NSW Main or Limited registration papers, you can apply for an associated registration for your dog where he needs to be disposed of before submitting your application. The associated registry is open to any dog that does not have a pedigree – purebred or crossbred. This allows these dogs to compete and compete for titles in performance-based disciplines such as agility. Click here to download the DOGS NSW Associate registration application form for your dog. There are many dog training clubs in New South Wales (and Australia) that offer agility training, and the Hawkesbury Dog Agility Club (HDAC) specializes in agility training for dogs who are at the very beginning of their journey, up to those who are at the forefront of their game. Our chief instructors are among the most successful participants in Australia, some of whom have won many prestigious national and state agility awards. Before entering your first ANKC agility competition, you must become a member of DOGS NSW (or another government institution if you live in another state). You can choose to register as an associate member if you wish to enjoy all the benefits of a full membership. Click here to learn how to join DOGS NSW. Your agility dog must have an official measurement performed before participating in agility competitions. This is to ensure that they have entered the right altitude class.
In ANKC agility trials, there are five size categories and your dog will be ranked according to the scales. To be measured, you need two agility judges to do this, and this should be done before participating in your first trial in case you are asked to present your dog size card. Dogs measured before the age of two should be re-examined to ensure that they are still in the correct altitude class. At HDAC, dogs can join our club from the age of nine months, when their joints and body begin to fully develop, and it is safe for them to learn agility with the equipment. Fit adult dogs can start exercising at any age, but HDAC recommends common sense for older dogs, as agility may not be the best sport for them. Canine agility is a sport open to most dogs and is becoming more and more popular due to its inclusivity. Small breeds such as terriers and large breeds such as retrievers could all be suitable for learning and competing in agility. After submitting your application, DOGS NSW will send you your membership information, and once you have your DOGS NSW membership number (and your dog is registered), you and your dog can participate in agility tests.
Membership is renewed annually. As part of your DOGS NSW membership, you may receive an online newsletter informing you of upcoming exams and competitions. Take a close look at the trial schedule, which details how to enter the contest and when registration closes. Most agility competitions can be submitted online. HDAC encourages its Blue and Silver class members to take agility exams, with the recommendation to participate in the novice jump first when an exam takes place at our training ground. Try not to attend too many classes at first, as this could overwhelm you and your dog. Note that some races may not be suitable for agility and may be advised for them to become spectators rather than participants. It is also advisable not to train overweight dogs, dogs with various health problems or dogs with joint problems without first consulting your veterinarian.
Our association will advise you if agility is the right sport for you and your dog. To ensure fair competition, show jumping heights are suitable for dogs. According to the agility rules of the Australian National Kennel Club (ANKC), the jumps are set at 200 mm, 300 mm, 400 mm, 500 mm or 600 mm, depending on the height of the dog at the withers.
