7/9/2020 – Announcing the Addition of ACT 2 to the Virtual ACT Program

The AKC Agility Department is excited to announce the expansion of the virtual ACT program to include the ACT 2 class.  ACT 2 is the next level of AKC agility above the entry-level ACT 1.  It has been one month since the ACT 1 program was announced and we have received a terrific response to it.

As with ACT 1, for ACT 2 the exhibitors will record their performance and submit it to AKC. In turn, AKC will assign a pre-selected AKC Agility Judge to virtually review and score the team’s ACT 2 performance.

ACT 2 is open to all dogs over 15 months of age and older that have not earned any AKC agility titles, except for ACT 1.  Dogs do not have to have an ACT 1 title to be entered in ACT 2.  If a dog already has one leg in ACT 1 they may be entered in ACT 2.  They do not need to complete the ACT 1 title.

There are 4 sets ACT 2 courses published to choose from.  We recommend you use both in the set for ease of course building.  The same is true of the 2 sets for ACT 1.  As with ACT 1, the exhibitor will follow the setup instructions provided, video the performance then upload the video to YouTube and submit the link with their entry form and fee to AKC.  Alternatively, the exhibitor may directly upload their video file when submitting their online entry.

The Virtual ACT program is planned to end at midnight on December 31, 2020, and all video submissions must be received by that date and time. We are excited to offer this virtual option to our Agility ACT 2 exhibitors!
