Derbyshire Dog Agility Club (DDAC) are a Kennel Club registered Agility club founded in 1997.
Hurdles These are a maximum of 1.219m (4ft) in width and dogs
must leap over them without knocking them over. The pole is easily
displaced so that the dogs do not hurt themselves if they do knock it
Rising Spread Jump This is two hurdles positioned closely together, with the first hurdle set lower than the second.
Long Jump This is a series of low jumps set to a maximum length of 1.5m (4ft 11ins) that the dog must clear in one jump.
Wall Exactly what you'd think, mostly solid but with easily
displaceable bricks along the top. The dog must leap over them without
knocking them off.
Pipe Tunnel A 'hard' but flexible tunnel, a minimum of 609mm
(2ft) wide and up to 3.048m (10ft) long, that the dog must pass
through, usually from a specified end.
Collapsible Tunnel This has a rigid round entrance with
non-slip cloth forming the body of the tunnel. The dog must make his
way through the tunnel. This piece of equipment has currently been withdrawn from use.
Weaving Poles A series of between 5 and 12 poles that the dog has to weave in and out of, entering with the first pole on the dog's left.
A Frame An 'A' shaped ramp formed by two ramps with non-slip surfaces and/or
anti-slip slats, that dogs must climb over. There are 'contact points'
at the base of each ramp, coloured differently to the rest of the
obstacle, that the dog's paws must come into contact with.
Dog Walk A plank with firmly fixed ramps at either end which
the dog must walk over, ensuring that paws touch 'contact points' at
A pivoted plank which the dog must negotiate. Again the dog must touch the coloured 'contact points' at both ends.
Table This table is a minimum of 941mm (3ft) square in size
with a non-slip surface. The dog must lie down on the table for a time
set by the judge. This is difficult to time, so is only usually seen in
Tyre Simple. The dog must jump through the tyre.
Wishing Well This hurdle has a roof to it and looks something like a wishing well or lych gate. The dog must go through the obstacle, below the roof but above a displaceable pole. This obstacle is not often used.
