On Saturday 23rd April and Sunday 24th April, Agility lovers from across the country competed at the Agility Enthusiasts Show which was held at the Lincolnshire Showground. For the past few years, the Kennel Club has held a Performance Weekend to coincide with the Agility Enthusiasts Show.
The Saturday provided a final opportunity for members of the Agility Team GB squad to impress the Team Manager and the Coaching Team on the FCI courses which were designed by Mr Anders Virtanen from Finland.
On the Sunday, entries were open to dogs and handlers of grades 4-7 to compete against the Agility Team GB squad. It was very exciting to see good potential in performances from non squad dogs.
Team Manager, Mr Mark Laker said: “Thank you to everyone who competed at this year’s Performance Weekend – it was great to watch and be part of. This was a unique opportunity to compete on some fantastic courses designed and judged by a top FCI judge. I'd like to acknowledge the support of all our sponsors, the Kennel Club, and Lincoln Agility Enthusiasts who enable events like the Performance Weekend to take place, and to everyone who helped us.”
