In Contact Dog Training in Springfield, IL; ClickerPets Mexico in Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico; and Sit, Stay, ‘N Play in Stroudsburg, PA have all reported results for the first game of the winter 2015 series of the National Dog Agility League.
You can view those results here: NOV RESULTS.
A very basic “eye test” shows Sit, Stay & Play to be clear leaders in this competition. And this time, we have pictures!
It appears that Australia will be coming online with the National Dog Agility League, perhaps this month, perhaps next. The NDAL will take its first steps outside of the continent of North America.
Jumping in to the League
If you have interested in jumping into League Play, the November workbook for the first game of the winter series can be downloaded HERE. We’ll be accepting results for this event through the end of the day, November 30th.
Time Stands Still
Ostensibly this is a simple follow-the-numbers game. Howwever, the game has special rules for timing. When the teeter has tipped (and is touching the floor) the time will stop. OPnce the dog leaves the ramp, time will begin again.
Note that initially time begins with the dog first dismounts the teeter.
Since time is essential to the conduct of the game, the judge should personally carry and operate a stopwatch in order to use his own judgment in measuring the dogs time to complete the course [and to what extent time stands still.]
Time Stands Still is scored Time, Plus Faults.
