New AKC Rules from most recent board meeting
1) The AKC FAST class has some changes to note, such as the removal of the double whistle and 4-paw rule. Plus a new FAST title, effective January 1, 2010, was added to the AKC Regulations for Agility Trials. The addition of this title is to encourage exhibitors to continue exhibiting their dogs past the Master FAST titles and help clubs to increase their agility entries. More details covering the changes to the FAST class is here: http://www.akc.org/pdfs/events/agility/judges_newsletter/2009/0809.pdf
2) The Obedience, Agility, and Rally Regulations were amended, effective April 1, 2010 to provide for mixed-breed dogs.
