Dog shows (officially conformation) may look like beauty pageants, but they’re not. Dogs aren’t compared against each other; they’re compared against the standards of their breed.
An exhilarating way to exercise with your dog, Agility is a fast-paced obstacle course with tunnels, hurdles, and other challenges that your dog completes as quickly as possible.
In Rally, you and your dog navigate a course, side-by-side, through 10-20 different exercises and, although it’s timed, it’s more about proving excellent behavior and teamwork than speed.
This fast-paced event features one dog running at a time, with their speed clocked and converted to MPH. Any dog over 12 months of age that are registered or enrolled with the AKC can participate.
