2020 AKC Agility Invitational Qualifying Period Announcement

In an effort to make the qualifying process as fair as possible we have reviewed the trials held in March and found that March 8, 2020, was the last date not affected by COVID-19.  In determining this we have decided to freeze the rankings at that point in time.  The Top 5 dogs and the Top Preferred dog in each breed will receive an invitation in August to AKC’s 2020 Agility Invitational event.

New this year, a separate, special certificate recognizing the Top 5 and Top Preferred teams shall be mailed out in August.  Invitations shall be sent as emails to the primary owner.

Partial sections of our country were able to hold events past March 8, 2020 and there may be additional trials held through the event’s eligibility date of June 30, 2020.  During this period, if a dog moves up into the Top 5 or becomes the Top Preferred dog they will also receive an emailed invitation and a special certificate.  Subsequently, some breeds may have more than 5-6 dogs invited.

We have posted the Top 5 and Top Preferred dogs as of March 8, 2020 here.  An updated list showing additional dogs invited shall be posted once results have been processed through June 30, 2020.

If you have questions please send email to

Congratulations to everyone!
