And they are big ones. :)

To earn an ADP Premier Championship, a dog needs to have a Premier title at all five levels, for a total of 40 legs. There are other requirements, as well, like you can't repeat locations within a level, each level has a certain number of behaviors you need to do, and a certain number of submissions for each level need to have a sequence of behaviors done one after another in a smooth routine.

Leo was the first dog ever to earn a Premier title at any level, and Lily was the second. They are currently the only GSD and APBT to have any Premier titles.

You can find out more about APD here. All Dogs Parkour

If anyone is interested, these are the links to their playlists of passing submissions.

Very awesome! I hope All Dogs Parkour continues to grow in popularity. It allows people to submit videos for judging, right? I think that's a wonderful idea for people who want to participate in sports and can't due to logistics issues - especially in this day and age.

Congrats Leo and Lily!

Yes, it's done completely via video. You record your entries, upload them to YouTube (or Vimeo) and then submit them by email. This is the website All Dogs Parkour and if you are on Facebook, there is a very active ADP group there. https://www.facebook.com/groups/AllDogsParkour

There are some other organizations as well. The International Dog Parkour Association was the first dog parkour organization, and they have titles from there, as well. There are some newer organizations than I'm going to be checking out, as well. International Canine Ninja is done through International Canine Events, DZ Pawkour is a brand new organization, as is Canine All Stars.

There are actually lots of organizations that offer titles via video. This Facebook groups has a list. https://www.facebook.com/groups/CyberDogSports
