Jump Height Exemptions in NADAC?? (agility)

Postby PBF lurker » Sun Jan 08, 2012 10:40 pm

Just wondering why NADAC has a jump height exemption for (among the understandably short and squatty/overly heavy breeds):
American Staffordshire Terrier
Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Don't they know these should be athletic dogs? Not overly large or heavy boned.

Jump Height Exemptions

Dogs listed on the Jump Height Exemption list are not required to be measured

Dogs in the following list of breeds may jump 4” lower than they would normally jump as determined by their measurement. The “breed exemption” jump height becomes their accepted Standard division jump height. For example, if a Corgi were to measure into the 12” jump height group, they are allowed to enter the 8” Standard division jump height group. However, the breed exemption may NOT be used to enter a dog at the 4” height unless they are entered in the Veterans or JH divisions or the Skilled category.

Code: Select all

Am. Staffordshire Terrier    Cavalier King Charles Spaniel      Petite Basset Griffon Vendeen
Australian Terrier         Clumber Spaniel                     Pug
Basset Hound               Dachshund                        Scottish Terrier
Bulldog                     French Bulldog                  Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Bull Terrier               Glen of Imaal Terrier            Swedish Valhund
Cairn Terrier               Miniature Bull Terrier            West Highland White Terrier
Cardigan Welsh Corgi         Pembroke Welsh Corgi

Mixed breed and large/heavy boned dogs may apply for a height exemption.

They have had those for a really long time. I wouldn't worry about it. It's a really arbitrary organization in all respects.
