Even more on 24" weave spacing.

I had the opportunity to get some overhead footage of a couple of dogs weaving both 20" and 24" spacing. The first dog is Amanda's Rusty. Five year old Rusty "The Engineer" is 14.5" tall and hasn't started competing yet (his first trial is in May). Everyone reading this blog probably knows Teller, but in any regard Teller is a three year old 23.5" golden retriever who has been competing in agility for about a year now (8 legs towards his MXJ).

Here is my plea to AKC to mandate 24" weave pole spacing (disallowing the 20" and 22" weave spacing) and to make those rule changes effective immediately. It's still the right thing to do for our dogs.
