Change: I had to make a few changes which changed some individual and total LPP, but the team rankings were unchanged.
Below are the results for the 50×70 League. The January 2022 50×70 League was the first time we had separate courses for our less experienced teams. This is currently in a testing phase to evaluate the implementation methodology, practicality, and utility for league players. January 50×70 was a numbered course designed by Melissa Wallace. The results for the two courses are separated below.
If anyone would like to design courses for the league, let me know!!!
The efforts of dogs playing in January earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP) based on the entire field of dogs who have competed on the course. The LPP is a measure of rank based on how they placed in relation to all the other dogs.

The Top Dog of all the clubs reporting in January is Peak from AQ4U’s Fast & Furryous in Brooks, Kentucky. Peak, a Border Collie handled by Christina Wakefield, nabbed the Top Dog spot for the month. They finished this course with zero faults in 27.45 seconds. Another of Christina’s dogs, Trip, was hot on Peak’s tail running in 27.85 seconds. Unfortunately, the videos were uploaded using Studio Creator which I think requires some additional settings to make them public.
