All dogs must be able to perform any obstacle used (whether it was the dog's choice or the handler's choice), at full height, SAFELY. 

Dogs who are noticeably unsound may NOT participate. Per AOC policy, aggressive dogs and bitches in season may NOT participate. The committee reserves the right to excuse any dog that does not meet these criteria.

Handlers who are training their first agility dog or are unclear about these rules are encouraged to talk to their AOC agility instructor or a committee member for guidance in assessing their dog’s ability.
