Congratulations to Team Canada, winner of the inaugural National Dog Agility League three-month competition. Team Canada won each of the three official monthly agility games. The winner of a league competition is determined by combined LPP earned by the top five players on a league team.
Special congratulations to the MVP (Most Valuable Pup) ~ Radical Rabbit a Malinois handled by Kirstin O’Neil. This dog clearly contributed to the success of Team Canada.
Team Canada did an excellent job of recording their runs on YouTube. And so we have a recording of each of the MVP league runs. The NDAL course or game is always a historical artifact. Any club or individual, at any time can run that course and score their results with every dog that has ever run it.
Below we are proud to share with you a course map from each of the competitions and a recording of both the overall Top Dog and the individual winners. Note that these courses have a strong international flavor and are not for the faint of heart. However, under Top Dog rules scores are Time, Plus Faults and it is very difficult to “E” a dog. The objective is to rank performance regardless of how rocky goes the run.
