To obtain the PREFERRED AGILITY CHAMPION title (PACH), a dog must exhibit superior performance on the agility course. Speed and consistency are the two major qualities denoting "superior performance." In order to acquire the PACH title, a dog must achieve a minimum of 750 championship points and 20 double qualifying scores obtained from the Master Preferred Standard Agility class and the Master Preferred Jumpers With Weaves class.
Qualifying in both the Master Preferred Standard Agility class and the Master Preferred Jumpers With Weaves class on the same day equals one Double Q.
