Getting your dog measured

All dogs competing in agility in NZ must have an interim height measurement recorded at 18 months and a permanent height measurement recorded at 2 years. This includes dogs competing only at Ribbon Trials.

Dogs may be measured up to four weeks prior to their 18 month anniversary, and up to two weeks prior to their two year anniversary.

Two people will both measure the dog and come to an agreement on the height to be officially recorded (see process to follow below).

You can find out more details of the process by following this link  and you should ask at the club for names of local measurers and when this could happen. We will try and measure a few dogs in one session to make it worthwhile for the people doing the measuring.
