Master Agility Champion Title.
To obtain the MASTER AGILITY CHAMPION title (MACH), a dog must exhibit superior performance on the agility course. Speed and consistency are the two major qualities denoting “superior performance” and therefore they are the basis for the MASTER AGILITY CHAMPIONSHIP program.

In order to acquire the MASTER AGILITY CHAMPION title, a dog must achieve a minimum of 750 championship points and 20 double qualifying scores obtained from the Master Agility Excellent “B” Standard class and the Master Excellent Jumpers With Weaves “B” class.

Championship Points (CP’s)
750 CP’s required minimum

  • 1 (CP) point is awarded for each full second under Standard Course Time. (No partial points are awarded.)
  • Dogs earn points from the Master Excellent “B” Standard agility class and/or the Master Excellent “B” Jumpers With Weaves class.

Placement Multiplier
  • Dogs placing first in their class double their championship points.
  • Dogs placing second in their class receive 1 ½ times their standard championship points. (All fractions of points are rounded down.)

Double Qualify (2Q’s)
20 (2Q’s) required minimum

  • Dogs qualifying with scores of 100 in both the Master Agility Exc. “B” Std class and the Master Exc. JWW “B” class on the same day.
  • Qualifying in both the Master Agility Exc. “B” Std class and the Master Exc. JWW “B” class on the same day equals 1 (2Q).

Requirements General Scoring.
Only scores of 100 (clear rounds) obtained in the Excellent B classes will count towards a dog’s Master Agility Champion requirements.

A dog does not have to obtain the Master Excellent title (MX) or the Master Excellent Jumpers With Weaves title (MXJ) prior to achieving scores that will count towards their Master Agility Champion title (MACH). A dog need not be in both “B” classes in order to start accruing CP’s. Any score of 100 (clear round) obtained in the Excellent “B” classes will count towards both the dog’s Championship requirements, and the dog’s MX titling requirements.

Titles: The MACH title initials will be followed by a numeric designation indicating the quantity of times the dog has met the requirements of the MACH title as defined above, e.g., 1500 CP’s and 40 2Q’s = MACH2.
