Why is supporting Team GB so important to us?



Supporting Team GB is the ethos of CSJ. CSJ sponsor many Working Dog competitions and clubs, as well as Teams and Championships.

As a key sponsor for many working dog events and competitors including, TEAM GB, we want to help every entrant make the most of our support, so these events can grow in success and popularity.  


Why supporting team GB is so important to us

The Gencon range was born out of agility - Irene Holbrook who designed the Gencon was a very keen and successful agility Competitor who couldn't find a product that matched her needs and so designed her own. So effective was the Gencon that through word of mouth it became a product of choice for many people competing in the agility world.

Having taken on the company from Irene we are delighted that the Gencon Range is still a favoured product with the agility fraternity and is now recommended by both the Guild of Dog Trainers and the RSPCA.

By supporting Team GB we believe that we can make a positive contribution to the Team's success and also increase our knowledge of the training equipment requirements of competitors in the sport of agility.


Khyam has been the market leader of Quick Erect technology for Tents, Awnings and Shelters for nearly 30 years. Starting with a small range of five or so models back in 1988, the range rapidly expanded into the Family Camping and Campervan markets. Diversifying into Sporting shelters with our Screendome and Screenhouse models, these quickly became the shelter of choice within the Dog Show and agility market. Sponsoring Agility Team GB will give us a great opportunity to connect directly with our end users and showcase our latest shelter technology like the Megatop.

Good Luck to Agility Team GB!

Nottingham Trent University

Nottingham Trent University is extremely proud to support Agility Team GB. We teach a range of animal and equine science courses from Further Education to degree and postgraduate level, so having Team GB come to campus for training is an excellent opportunity for our students to see science put into practice and get involved in the logistics of a team training day! Our canine research portfolio is also enhanced by our contact with the team members (canine and human!), team manager and all the support crew. We strive to educate with a strong practical and applied basis - Team GB helps us achieve that goal. 

All NTU staff and students wish Team GB the very best and much success! 

Agility 1st

As an organisation we bring a range of skills to the team due of our extensive experience of international agility competition as well as our highly developed coaching skills.

Agility handlers at the elite level strive to learn from coaching techniques applied to a wide range of sports. At Agility1st we have extensive experience at identifying adapting and adopting these sports coaching techniques to agility. We aim to remain at the forefront of these developments and being part of the Agility Team GB support team is one of the key enablers for us to achieve this objective.

This year we are also proud to have achieved Preferred Educational Partner status with for the Kennel Club Accredited Instructors Scheme continuing and developing an effective partnership between Agility1st and the Kennel Club and making a difference for dogs.
