I'm sure this is old news to most everybody, but I didn't see anything about it here.

The United States Dog Agility Association (USDAA) will be taking over APDT Rally and the name will be changing to World Cynosport® APDT Rally.

This has caused some heartburn because USDAA is considered to be the most competitive US agility venue by many agility participants, while APDT Rally has been considered by many as a "fun" venue. I never completely agreed with that, but I know that is how some rally folks looked at it.

In any case, all the current APDT Rally registrations, scores and titles will be grandfathered in and there will be a transition to a single registry for both types of events. The current APDT Rally rules and regulations will remain in effect for now.

IME, a lot of agility participants also compete in rally - or vice versa - so this does seem to make a lot of sense.

Sorry I didn't include the link to the announcements. Here they are:

I'm glad someone took over APDT rally. It's a lot of fun and I know there are a lot of people (myself included) who enjoy their venue. It would be a huge shame if it had died out.

That's really great news!! :)

Yes it is. i expect that we will start to see some USDAA-sponsored dual events (agility + rally) where the locations permit it, which can only add interest to both.
