*******************************************

Research & Information Papers regarding jump heights have now been printed for BAA members to read at BAA shows,

*******************************************

BAA are changing Jump & Dog Height requirements so that NO dog jumps
anything that is any higher than its own height measured to the withers
compulsory or no more than 1" voluntarily

Dogs under 13" = Micro = 9"
Dogs under 13" Have a choice Micro or Tiny = 11.5” (where available)
Dogs between 13" & 14" Have a choice Mini/Micro
Dogs Over 14" & up to 16" = Mini = 13.75"
Dogs Between 16" & 17" Have a choice Mini/Medium
Dogs over 17" & up to 20" = Medium = 17.75"
Dogs Between 20" & 21" have a choice Medium/Maxi
Dogs over 21" & up to 24" = Maxi = 21"
Dogs over 24" = Maxi Plus = 24"


NEW at EMDAC & Jumping Jacks shows in 2014 Dogs under 13" have a choice Micro 9" or Tiny = 11.5"

(all shows in 2015 may use this height)


This change ensures dogs competing Large KC are not forced into Mini BAA which would have been too much of a difference.
these heights will take effect from 1st April 2014 & trialled for a year, then a review will take place.


The weight to height ratios will remain the same.
The A Frame will remain at 5 feet to the apex for standard classes & 4 feet to the apex for Veterans.
Changes within the BAA are decided following "on the ground" studies, gathering of data & information from scientific studies & veterinarians that provides evidence jumping lower is beneficial for the dogs long-term well-being.
