Information about past, present and future USDAA World Teams. Every two years USDAA selects a team to compete at the IFCS World Agility Championships. The championships have been held every 2 years since 2002.
The competition is open to all types of dogs regardless of pedigree or Kennel Club affiliation. There are 4 height divisions, Toy, Mini, Midi and Maxi with 3 team members in each height.
Teams compete for Gold in Standard Agility, Jumpers, Snooker and Gamblers. The All Around competition is the combined scores of the four individual classes.
The Biathlon Class combines scores from a Standard Agility and Jumpers class.
The Team Triathlon event consists of Standard Agility, Jumpers and Team Relay classes. Each country can field up to 2 teams for the triathlon event. Each 3 member team must consist of two heights and must contain both small and large dogs in each team. One team is named a small dog team as it contains 2 small dogs and one team is a large dog team as it contains 2 large dogs. (Toy and mini are small dogs, midi and maxi are large dogs.)
