The 2017 AKC Agility Invitational

The tables and charts below show the ONE fastest dog per breed in each height class. This gives you an idea of a breed’s ceiling. If you hope to go faster than that, you will have to become THE fastest dog in your breed. We all know that certain breeds dominate the sport, but this data will show you which breeds (and individual dogs) are hot on their tails.
