This weekend, the 2013 AKC Agility Invitational will take place in beautiful Orlando, Florida. The top 5 dogs in each breed are invited to compete, making the Invitational a wonderful celebration that showcases the amazing diversity of dog breeds that compete in AKC agility. This competition has grown in popularity since it’s inception in 2006, especially with handlers who enjoy working with rare agility breeds. As competitors have set their sights on this national level event, the amount of showing required to be a top 5 dog has increased, making it harder to finish in the top 5 even for atypical breeds. However, there are still many breeds that don’t fill their 5 spots; if your agility dog is one of the following breeds, set your sights for next year’s invitational!
