Pole weaving is part of an agility obstacle course and usually one set of a 12-pole weave is included in most of the events. But there are world records for pure bred and mixed bred dogs in slicing around 60 weaves ie five 12-pole weaves. Tomorrow(Saturday, November 10) in Wellington, New Zealand, a number of dogs will be attempting world records. Almost all the records are held by Americans partly because the rest of the world has been slow to catch on. The world records for Corgis are very impressive. The Pem world record holder is a dog owned by Marian Jones of New York with a time of 17 25 seconds The Cardi record is held by a dog owned by Shelley Permann of California with 17.60 seconds. Lets hear it for the Pems. The overall world record is, naturally, held by a Border Collie at 12.30 seconds. So a group of New Zealand dogs will try for some of the huge list of records that exist. Afterall there are 332 FCI recognised dog breeds and most are capable of competing in agility. The mixed breeds are divided into size categories - Maxi-plus, maxi, midi, mini and micro. Back to Corgis, My 2 year old Pem is a fairly quick weaver and seldom misses a pole, but somehow I doubt that he would complete more than three sets of weave poles by the time 17.25 seconds had expired. I'd like him to try one day . Maybe in another year's time.
