Facts about Dog Agility Training


Dog Agility Series - Dog Agility Dilemma, RC or 2o2o!

Dog Agility Training Singapore has been the talking point. When you get yourself very soaked into Dog Agility, RC - Running Contact or 2o2o - 2-On and 2-Off are skills we learn how to apply to different groups of Agility Regions, be it, the European or the United States Styles of Running. European Groups are FCI, UKI, EO while the USA Groups are USDAA and AKU. Each region offers different challenges to the competitors.

For the beginners for Dog Agility Training and those who are new to Dog Agility, let me explain what are the Contacts Obstacle in the Agility Ring. Dog Walk, A-frame and Teeter are three different type of Contacts Obstacles. Regardless of RC or 2o2o, both are good and effective in handling contacts.


Dog Walk, Teeter and A-Frame are part of dog agility training equipment.

What is the objective and the completion of the Contact Obstacles?

The Dog Walk or DW Contact is a balancing beam obstacle. The three rules apply are ;

1. On the Up-Ram, your pup will need to touch the colour, (some organization doesn't count the up contact) 2. On the Down-Ram, your pup will need to touch the colour and 3. On the Safety Aspect, your pup need to have 4-paws rules.

The A-frame or AF Contact Obstacle


The three rules apply are ;

1. On the Up-Ram, your pup will need to touch the colour, (some organization doesn't count the up contact) 2. On the Down-Ram, your pup will need to touch the colour and 3. On the Safety Aspect, your pup need to have 4-paws rules.

The Teeter Totter aka Seesaw is the shortest but trickiest contact obstacle.

The three rules apply are ;

1. On the Up-Ram, your pup will need to touch the colour, 2. On the Down-Ram, your pup will need to touch the colour and 3. On the down ram must hit the ground before your pup can take off.

RC, The Running Contact Technique

The RC as the name imply, it is a constant motion running over the contacts, but having the 3 rules applies to each Contact Obstacle. The difficult part to train for RC is to teach your pup to remember the number of strides down the down ram in order to touch the colour before going off the contact. The World Fastest DW was 2.5 second. The fastest AF was 1.2 second and the fastest teeter was 1 second, the sliding teeter.

2o2o, The 2 On, 2 Off Technique

The 2o2o as the name implies require you to teach your pup to maintain a 2 Paws on contact and 2 paws off contact position. The Release command can be immediate.

Which technique should I embrace? The RC or the 2o2o? Why is there such a dilemma? The different courses provided by different Judges are testing our proficiency and if we have tested and try these 2 options, we will not find to be wanted.


As always have fun and stay positive
