Let the Games begin!
This year, Club-Doggie is offering our own fun, cumulatively scored dog agility competition. The best part…it’s a competition that allows you to train (with FOOD AND TOYS) with no penalty!
The event takes place over a series of weekends during the summer. Find out more and enter by downloading the premium below:

What does the 1 or 2 mean on the entry form next to the game? Is that the difficulty level?
The 1 or 2 is for each round, not for the difficulty level. It does not matter if you are in the Titled or Untitled division, each division will have a course designed for their skill level for both rounds 1 and 2.
What if I can’t enter all the games? Can I still play?
Absolutely! There is a cumulative score for the end of the Games, but you are not required to play all the games.
Are there weaves in the Jumpers courses?
No. Weaves are only used in the Standard courses, Weaves & Tunnels courses, and optionally in Obstacle Discrimination and Distance Challenge courses.
What are the different divisions?
Titled – for dogs who have earned a title in any sanctioned dog agility venue.
Untitled – for dogs who have not earned a title in any sanctioned dog agility venue.
Barely Legal – for dogs between the ages of 5 months and 16 months of age (modifications are made to the courses/equipment for this level).
Will my dog need to be able to do the teeter?
Yes, they will need to do the FULL teeter if they are in the Titled division. Untitled has the option to do the full teeter or just the end of the teeter (the “bang-it game”). Barely Legal will only do the “bang-it game”.
Will my dog need to be able to weave?
Yes, they will need to understand how to weave 12 poles if they are in the Titled division. Untitled will need to be able to weave 6 poles. Barely Legal will only do 2 poles.
What about the Aframe and Dog Walk?
The Titled classes will have a 5′ Aframe for small dogs (8″ & 12″) and a 5’6″ Aframe for big dogs (16″, 20″, & 24″). The Untitled classes will have a 5′ Aframe
The Barely Legal class will have lowered contacts (about 2’6″ Aframe and DogWalk).
How is the cumulative score calculated?
Each run starts with 100 points. Your time (and any faults) are deducted from the 100 points, leaving you with your final point score for that game. The dog/handler team with the most points at the end of the games (cumulatively) is the winner!
Can I train in The Games?
Yes! There is NO FAULT for using food or toys to train in The Games. In fact, in The Games, we do not call refusals so as not to accidentally fault rewards. Off course errors, however, such as the repeating of an obstacle – even for training – are faulted.
