The Bad Dog Agility Power 60 for 2020 – Through Q3

  • what is interesting, if you combine, WI,Il,MN, you have 429 trials, and most of those are now indoor trials, most in about a 4 hour or less drive from Milwaukee, then ad in MI, IN, which gives us 219 more for 648 trials within a couple hour drive more…again, most are indoor climate controlled…who would have thought this sport would have exploded this way from the 90’s of us crazy people driving 8 hours plus 6-8 times a year to attempt to hit a contact! amazing!!

  • I think it would be even more interesting to see the data by mileage … obviously TX and CA are huge states, so it makes sense that they would have more agility trials than a smaller state. Maybe someone could do a similar analysis except compare major cities and agility trials that are within 2 or 3 hour drive of those cities (ex: how many of the TX trials were within 2 hours driving distance of DFW?)

  • CA tops the list however its a 12 hour drive from one end to the other, so doesnt give a true picture.. Big plus is the weather makes trials available all year round.IMO people in smaller states travel interstate more frequently.say they Friends in WA usually travel 4 to 5 hours and stay in motels in order to compete.

  • If you are trying to identify hot spots it may be more revealing to see the results for each state in a per capita basis.

  • Unfortunately, there are only three Agility trials (all AKC) that take place in Arkansas each year. Sure wish we had more USDAA trials in this state.
