New Rules - Please Read
New Rule: “If a measurement is necessary, it is the exhibitor’s responsibility to have their dog(s) measured prior to running.”
If your dog does not have a Permanent height card, or if your dog has turned 2 years of age, since getting your temporary height card, your dog NEEDS to be measured.
Exhibitors are NO longer required to send their height cards in with their entries, Jump Height cards are NO longer required to be shown during check-in.
All dogs competing in agility must possess an official AKC Jump Height Card. Dogs that do not have a valid Jump Height Card must be measured by a judge of record for that trial and will only be effective for that set of trials, excluding the dogs jumping in the 24-inch or 26-inch height division.
If an official measurer is present, all dogs that have not been issued a permanent Jump Height Card or temporary jump height (yellow) form must be measured for a Jump Height Card regardless of the jump height entered.
If there is not an AKC Field Rep or VMO in attendance, all dogs that have not been issued a permanent Jump Height Card or temporary jump height (yellow) form may still compete; however, they must be measured by a judge of record for the trial, prior to running at each trial. The judge’s measurement will be valid for this trial or back-to-back trials only.
If a dog is measured by an AKC Field Rep or VMO and is now eligible to jump in a lower height class, the measurement is effective immediately for any future runs. This does not apply to a challenge measurement for a permanent jump height card.
