I apologize if I'm being dim.  I have a dog who measures just about 15" at the shoulder. I have him jump 12" skilled. Do I have to jumpe him at 16" at champs? 

You can jump 12" no problem!    For placements and scoring you will be competing against dogs who measure between 14" and 18".

I know this topic has been talked about a lot but just want to verify a qualification point.
So, my dog has a total (right now) of 95 points in Regular agility, 30 from Novice, 30 from Open and 35 from Elite if I stop right there at 95 points she will be able to enter the Pre-Elite class at Champs, correct?
She has also earned her points needed in XHoopers.
Thanks a bunch!

Not exactly.  You need 100 points in Regular for the current year (Aug 1 - Aug 1) - any level.  And you can have up to 100 points in ELITE Regular over the dog's lifetime.  Just not MORE than 100 points in ELITE regular.  So no need to stop running Elite Regular until you get to 100 points. 

So assuming your current total of Regular points has been earned in this year, you still need at least another 5 regular points (any level).  And after that you can still accumulate Elite points until you reach 100 and can still enter Pre-elite.  Just don't go OVER 100 Elite points.

The way I read the requirements, if your dog has 100 Elite regular points it cannot enter Pre-Elite, but if it does not have 20 Chances points in Open or Elite it cannot enter Regular Champs. So if my dog has over 100 Elite regular points but not the chances points it cannot enter Champs at all? This might actually apply to one of my dogs unless I drop her from elite real soon.

just trying to figure out if it's possible for a dog to qualify himself out of Pre elite by earning too many elite reg points during the year, thereby putting his lifetime elite reg points over 100, but still not have enough elite/open reg points earned during the current year to run in elite at champs.

That is correct.   Dropping her would also not help in this case as those 100 points are lifetime, not yearly.

It definitely is.  If that does happen then second chance entries would be your best bet.

Seems odd to have a "No Dog's Land" between Regular and Pre-Elite, but I will plan accordingly. The dog in question won't be competitive at either level, so it is just a matter of having something for her to do.

In trying to qualify for a stakes entry, I noticed my dog earned Distance Challenge Q's in a couple of runs at Champs last year.  Given that the time frame is in the window this years qualifying window, can we use those Distance Challenge points to qualify for this years Challenge Stakes or Silver Stakes?

Do any champs run count toward any 'normal' NADAC award or title?   Or towards life time points?

Isabel,

Yes - runs during CHAMPS, if they meet the criteria, can earn a 10 point "Q" in the regular class.

Yup!  Bonuses earned at champs do count towards your total for the following year.

Is the Height Verification form for 2017 NADAC Championships still a requirement?  I did not attend Champs in Utah last year.

It is a requirement for this year.

Unless your dog is in the 20 inch group, then it's sort of redundant and we don't need it :)   Or if you have a height card already, then we don't need it.

As for the height measurements for champs , could we use an akc jump height card?

It's always been our policy that we don't accept other venue paperwork, since they also don't accept ours.  So we'll stick to that :)
