AAC Re-measurement Day & Fun Runs

In 2018, The Agility Association of Canada (AAC) will be implementing new jump heights and all previously measured dogs will need to be re-measured.

Backyard Agility Dogs is pleased to be offering a Re-measurement Day and Agility Fun-Runs on Sunday, July 30, 2017. Get your dog completely remeasured and even get a chance to try out the new heights on course.

If your dog is currently competing and has a completed or partially completed ID Card, you will need to apply for a replacement card from the AAC prior to this event. Go to aac.ca to order online.

Judges Brigitte Hunter, Laurie Keith & Pierre Lalonde will carry out all measurements

Entry Forms for the Fun Runs will be posted on the BADogs website at a later date. A charitable donation will be made to the Manitoba National Agility Fund.
