ELIGIBILITY OF CLASSES

This classification should apply to competitions for large, medium and small dogs.

In the following definitions of classes, First Prizes or other prize wins are those gained in standard classes at any Kennel Club licensed Open Agility
Shows (i.e. Limited Agility Shows, special classes and invitation events excepted). Only a first place with a clear round will count towards grade
progression. Societies may schedule classes other than those defined below. The eligibility for “Special” classes must be defined by the Society and
included in the schedule. The word “Special” must be included in the title of the class.

Agility classes to include contact points and Jumping classes where there are not contact obstacles. With this proviso, classes are defined as follows:-

Class Structure. A class may be either held as a Graded Class or a Combined Class. A Graded Class may be scheduled for one or more consecutive
Grades with separate results and awards issued for each grade. A Combined Class may be scheduled for more than one consecutive grade with one
overall set of results.

Progression. Progression from each Grade will require one Agility win or three Jumping wins at that grade, except that progression from Grade 6 will
require 4 wins at Grade 6, two of which must be agility classes. Results from Combined Classes will only count towards progression from the dog’s
current grade.

Points Progression. At the handler’s discretion a dog may progress up to Grade 5 by winning 75 points at each grade, using the Agility Warrant
points scheme, Regulation K3.c refers, except that there is no requirement for a minimum number of agility points. If this method of progression is
selected, the handler must ensure the Show Secretary signs the dog’s Agility Record Book at the first show entered at the higher grade. There is no
time limit on this progression, however, once a dog has progressed, it cannot return to a previous grade.
