League Results April 2015

May 13, 2015

April was a formative month for the National Dog Agility league. We ran two competitions with six clubs running one, or both. Following are the results of those events.

We are thrilled by the number of teams including YouTube recordings in event results. We’re hoping that this will be a normal practice as we grow the league.

The Box Game

Top Dog in the Box Game was: Radical Rabbit a Malinois handled by Kirstin O’Neill, playing for Team Canada

The High Scoring League Club was: Team Canada

While this game is closed for April league results, all National Dog Agility League Events are perpetually open for play. And a dog’s score will be recorded and aggregated with all existing scores. A dog may repeat play on games or courses previously run. It’s kind of like a list of scores on a video game. To play the game, download the scorekeeping workbook here:

Download Results ~ This game was originally played in November, 2012. You can download existing results here. Dare to Double is a dog’s-choice game. The objective is to score as many points as possible, repeating a doubling obstacle on course (traditionally the A-frame) as often as time allows. The dog risks losing half his points if the A-frame is faulted! The dog must get to the finish obstacle before course time elapses or be penalized. Dare to Double is score Points, Then Time.
