June 2021 60×90 Masters Results

We have reached the end of the spring season. This post is for the results of the 60×90 Masters League. Four clubs have reported results for this League for June. The top four scores are really close this month!

We have been using “historical” courses for a while now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These are courses that have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in June earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP) based on the entire field of dogs who have competed on the course, including historical performances. The LPP is a measure of rank based on how they placed in relation to all the other dogs.

Top Dog

The Top Dog of all the clubs reporting in June is from the third-place team, Jumping C Crew out of Exeter, California. Alaska, an Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog handled by Liz Clements, took first place this month. They finished this course with zero faults in 32.96 seconds.

The Top Dog from 2017 was Gemma, a Border Collie handled by Susan Dawson. They represented United Colors of Agility in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. They completed the course with zero faults in a whooping 25.73 seconds. You gotta take a look!

In truth, I really do not think these two dogs can be compared. They represent completely different body structures which impact their physical abilities. The dog that came closest to that time was Trebuchet the Papillon in 28.41.

Unfortunately, she earned 5 faults for a dropped bar. Structurally, though, this Papillon is closer to the Border Collie than the Stumpy Tail. Hmm… I wonder if anyone in the past tried to score dogs based on body types?

First-Place Team – 713 LPP

The first-place team in June was Jumpin’ K-9’s out of Temecula, California. Their top dog was Tilly, an Australian Shepherd handled by Kaye Fitzpatrick. They had 0 faults and a time of 35.06 seconds.
