In this episode (38:57)

The Bad Dog Agility PowerScore ranking for the AKC National Agility Championship is back! We crunched the numbers for every single dog entered in the upcoming AKC National Agility Championship. Data comes from the qualifying period for this event (12/1/2013 – 11/30/2014). We discuss the top dogs, the statistical trends from last year to this year, and the addition of the Premier and ISC warm-up round.

Mentioned

Don't Miss This!
In this podcast, we emphasized that you do not have to be at the top of the rankings to have a legitimate chance of making the Finals. Finishing with three clean runs is critical, as the vast majority of finalists will have accomplished this–emphasizing consistency over absolute speed. We published a set of charts that support this viewpoint in the post: “How to Make the Finals at AKC Nationals”
