Dog Agility Training Contest: General Provisions

The National Cynological Organisations (N.C.O.) are invited to promote the AGILITY ideal and the regulations defined by the F.C.I.


Introduction: Agility is a dog competition open to all dogs. The aim of agility is for dogs to negotiate different obstacles to assess and enhance their intelligence and agility.

It is an educational and sporting activity intended to improve the dog's integration into society. The sport requires a good rapport between dog and handler, which will result in perfect understanding. Competitors therefore must be familiar with elementary training and basic obedience.

Three categories exist:

  • S (Small) : for dogs measuring less than 35 cm. at the withers
  • M (Medium) : for dogs measuring 35 cm. or more and less than 43 cm at the withers
  • L (Large) : for dogs measuring 43 cm. or more at the withers
