Animaltalk Top 100 Agility Ratings

The rating system works as follows:

  • The qualifying period for the awards runs between 1 January 2018 and 30 November 2018.
  • Points are awarded for all Grade 3 contact agility and grade 3 non contact agility rounds, in all height categories, for events run under a KUSA open show or KUSA Championship show license, throughout South Africa. No demo events are included.
  • Standard course times are calculated at 3.8m/s for contact agility and 4.0m/s for non contact agility.
  • The top 10 contact agility rounds and the top 10 non contact agility rounds for each dog count toward their score.
  • Points are awarded as follows:
  • Clear round = 10 points + 100% bonus points
  • 01 -5 faults = 8 points + 75% bonus points
  • 01-10 faults = 6 points + 50% bonus points

*Bonus points = standard course time – dog’s actual time
