You asked for it, and we heard you!
Great news; in response to the many requests from both exhibitors and clubs, AKC has been able to move up the implementation date of Time 2 Beat as a new titling class!
T2B is fun, fast, and exciting! Refusals and runouts are not scored and dogs of all levels run on the same course. It has already been tested by more than 5,000 dogs nationwide which have played this new game when it was offered at trials as a special attraction. T2B has proven to be a fun way to test a handler/dog team's speed and accuracy.
All AKC clubs licensed to hold Agility Trials may immediately apply to hold this exciting new class or add it to events already submitted for approval. Clubs can continue to offer T2B as a special attraction prior to the class's effective start date of July 1.

Congratulations to everyone who qualified for this year's Nationals. This year will be our biggest Nationals ever with 1,135 entries. It is very exciting to have a 20% increase in entries over our prior record set at last year's event.
Come out and watch the fun as the best of the best compete for the title of National Agility Champion. Better yet, volunteer to help and get one of the best seats in the house from which to watch all of the runs. Sign up to volunteer here.
New for this year all junior handlers will be presented with a medallion for participating at Nationals. This medallion is generously sponsored by MAD Agility.
