This post is for the results of the 40×85 League of the IDAL. The April course is the final game of this season. The April course is a fun game designed by Cindy Valdez who represents Jumpin’ K-9’s in Temecula, California.
If you would like to design courses for the league or learn how to design courses, give me a shout. I will add you to our group.
The efforts of dogs playing in April earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP). The LPP is a measure of rank based on how each dog placed in relation to all the other dogs. The IDAL keeps a catalog of all the courses run since the league inception. When a course is run a second, third, fourth… time, the scores of ALL the dogs who have ever run the course are maintained in field. New runs are compared and ranked with the old runs. This ranking is a unique system in the agility world. It allows competitors to do such things as compare a current run to an older run by the same dog or visualize how handling has changed over the years. Honors (titles) are conferred based on the total LPP of a dog as well as the performance in each season.
