In Contact Dog Training has found a new venue for their National Dog Agility League play. Deb Auer writes:
This month we packed up and took NDAL to Peoria Obedience Training Club (POTC) just outside of Peoria, IL. The results are attached. We had 32 new players (by dog count) and everyone was very enthusiastic about the NDAL format. We will be taking NDAL back to POTC in February.
Jumping Into the League
Playing with the NDAL is a simple matter. We’re running three separate leagues based on the size of the working space. So, if you have a working space big enough you can participate in any or all of the three leagues.
Each of the leagues also has a flavor or level of difficulty for the courses played.

The series will run for three months. The course maps for each are contained in the scorekeeping worksheets.
Dogs must be registered with the National Dog Agility League. For now, the franchise clubs keep the fee or pass it along as a perk to your league players. You can download the registration form HERE.
All courses in the first series will be conducted under Top Dog Agility Players rules for performance. The Top Dog Rules and Regulations can be downloaded HERE.
