  Determining your Dog's Jump Height

First measure your dog: 
Measuring him from the ground to the top of his "withers", or shoulders (which is the highest point  at the nape of the neck, where the bottom of the neck meets the back).  Measure him from the side, and use a yardstick or measuring tape.

The agility organizations have the following jump height divisions:

AKC

For dogs 10" and under at the withers:   8" jump height
over 10" and under 14" at the withers:    12" jump height
over 14" and under 18" at the withers:    16" jump height
over 18" and under 22" at the withers:     20" jump height
over 22" at the withers:                            24" jump height
Other jump divisions: Dogs over 22” may be entered in a 26” jump class at the owner’s discretion.  Also some small breeds may be allowed to enter a “preferred” 4” class.  Older dogs may also be entered into “preferred” classes for lower height jumping.

USDAA

For dogs 12" and under at the withers:    12" jump height
over 12" and under 16" at the withers:     16" jump height
