"Dog agility is a competitive sport in which a handler directs his dog over a timed obstacle course. Dogs race against the clock as they jump hurdles, scale ramps, burst through tunnels, traverse a see-saw and weave through a line of poles. With scoring based on faults similar to equestrian show jumping, dog agility has become an exciting spectator event."

Tammy Wiebe, National Specialty Judge, 1997

USDAA--The Organization

USDAA (The U.S. Dog Agility Association) was organized in 1986 by Ken Tatsch of Dallas, Texas. The agility format is based on international standards. USDAA is the largest agility organization and is considered by most competitors to be the pinnacle of agility competition in the United States.

Beardies have been competing in USDAA since April of 1992. We now have 156 Beardies registered with USDAA. 85 have earned legs and 57 have earned titles.

The USDAA's Bearded Collie Stats are regularly updated:
