Titles and Statistics

SUMMARY: Back to the database for AAD analysis. Because I can.

That was Tika's SACH-Bronze, by the way (Standard Agility Championship, with 15 Masters Standard Qs).

And Boost's AAD (Advanced Agility Dog).

My first agility dog, Remington, earned his AAD three years and three months after our first USDAA trial. That was 27 trials worth of experience, 12 of which were USDAA trials. It seemed like forever!

My second, Jake, earned his AAD one year and 9 months after his first USDAA trial. That was 19 trials total, 8 of which were USDAA.

Tika took two years exactly to get to her AAD; that was 45 trials, 20 of which were USDAA. That also seemed like forever, but in a whole different way.

Boost took 1 year and a couple of weeks, over 18 trials, 14 of which were USDAA.

What does this prove? That I've got a database! Wooohoo!


  1. And that you can count, LOL!!! Nice job, very interesting to compare with others stats.

  2. Flirt - AAD in 11 trials, 11 months
    Ray - AAD 18+ trials, 3 yrs and 4 months

    Not counting other venues.

    Ray - P3 in 26+ trials 1 year and 11 month from AAD

    I don't keep very good records and rely on the USDAA website.

  3. It's amazing the difference among dogs with the same handler sometimes. So it *isn't* all just the handler. :-)
