AAC Agility

Competitive agility is a sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy (Wikipedia).


The Agililty Association of Canada welcomes all dogs in its membership. Dogs are grouped into three classes with each class divided into jump heights based on the dog's height measured at the shoulder.

Performance Levels

In normal AAC competition, dogs begin trialing at the Starters level and progress through Advanced to the Masters level as the courses become increasingly challenging with tighter course times. Titles are based on accumulating legs or "Qs" based on clean (fault-free) runs within a set course time.

At the Regional and National trials, all dogs compete at one level. In the Regional competitions, teams accumulating 400 points or more are eligible for the National Championships. At the Nationals, the team with the highest cumulative number of points is named the National Champion in each group and jump height.


Titles available to the dog/handler teams in AAC competition are:
