The Agility Course Test (ACT) is an entry level agility event designed to introduce and welcome beginning dogs and their handlers to the AKC sport of agility.

There are two types of ACT courses. ACT Standard – ACT 1 and ACT 2 – which are the beginning level standard courses and ACT Jumpers – ACT 1J and ACT 2J – which are entry level Jumpers courses (no Aframe, Dogwalk, Teeter or Table on courses).  ACT 1 and ACT 1J are designed for the beginning dog to show basic sequencing and performance skills. ACT 2 and ACT 2J requires an increased skill level shown by the additional number and types of obstacles to be performed.

In addition to showing their dog’s entry level skills, exhibitors will learn to fill out an AKC entry form, check-in at the ring, taking their dog in and out of ring, handling their dog while being judged and other information that will help them when they move on to AKC agility trials or other venues with their dog. 

Dogs must be 15 months old to enter these events.  They do not need to be AKC registered at the time of entry. Registration can be done at the test.
