Welcome to our final week of the new Rally signs!
Magnum and I have certainly had fun introducing the new signs to you. Good luck and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments.
There was a question concerning the broad jump that can be used in the Master class. Although we have standard and minimum jump heights for the bar and high jump, this is not the case with the broad jump. Because of the limitations of the width of the boards used for the broad jump, all dogs will jump the minimum height when the broad jump is used. Here are the specifications:
Broad Jump. The broad jump will be set at the minimum distance for all dogs outlined below. The boards used will go from the shortest board to the highest board when setting the distance as follows:
- Up to and including 14" one (1) board
- Over 14" and up to and including 20 two (2) boards
- Over 20" three (3) boards
We will be covering the following exercises this week:

Founded in 1898, UKC has been dedicated to enhancing the lives of Dogs That Do More, and their owners, by providing essential resources to help owners and breeders make informed decisions. The dog-human bond is celebrated through family-friendly programs highlighting the instincts and heritage of purebred and mixed-breed dogs alike at over 15,000 licensed events annually.
