With the AKC Agility Invitational at Eukanuba coming up this weekend, many Belgians are heading to Orlando from across the nation. All four Belgian breeds have dogs invited. The top five dogs of each breed are invited if they meet certain criteria.
AKC’s criteria are: The AKC Agility Invitational report lists the top dogs ranked in Agility events and is based on the Top MACH Dog formula (Double Q’s x 10) + MACH (Master Agility Championship) points that dogs have earned during the qualifying period.
