Tylt, a Border Collie handled by Teri O’Neill of Team Canada won the December game (https://youtu.be/zhUWgwYqgsc ~ There’s some pretty fancy footwork in this video… Teri manages to kick off one of her shoes).

Jumping Into the League

We welcome all new clubs who would like to establish league franchises. The National Dog Agility League stands apart from most agility organizations in the world. This is not a titling organization; and it’s really inexpensive to play.

Think of it this way… The National Dog Agility League is the only world-wide competition to which all dogs are invited.

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.
