K9 Manners & More of Broken Arrow, OK has reported results for the final game of the summer 2015 series of the National Dog Agility League.
Mary Green writes “On Sunday, we ran 30 dogs, had 3 clean runs. The rest of us were humbled. Back to training…”
In the view of the National Dog Agility League K9 Manners & More is an excellent club that approaches the game with a sense of fun and adventure. This club embodies the spirit of play that is the fundamental mission of the NDAL. We’re pleased and proud to have this club playing with us each month!
You can view those results OCT RESULTS. We are expecting results from one more franchise club. Though it’s possible we can be surprised by the unexpected new league club.

Handler’s Analysis (Courtesy of Bud Houston):
We’re planning a two month series beginning in November that will be based on a 50′ x 50′ field size. Kama Rueschenberg (Cave Creek, Arizona) has been invited to design one of the two games. She has not yet confirmed.
We’ve known all along that the size of the competition field is an important component of league play. Effective in 2016 we’ll be splitting into two leagues based on field size: 50×50 and 60×70. A club/franchise will be able to compete in both leagues, so long as their competition space fully supports both field sizes.
