Kent based canine society awarded Championship Agility status

30 August 2013    06:00

Kennel Club registered dog club, Tunbridge Wells and District Canine Society, has been awarded Championship Agility status for Large dogs as of 2014.

This takes the total number of Championship Agility show societies to 25 for Large dogs and 23 for Small and Medium dogs.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: "We are pleased to be able to award Tunbridge Wells and District Canine Society with Championship Agility status.

"With the skill level within the sport always improving, an increase in the number of clubs and societies able to offer Championship classes will benefit competitors and their dogs, as well as the clubs themselves who will hopefully see an increase in entries."

"We wish the society every success when their Championship Agility status comes into effect in 2014."

Any registered society interested in applying for future Championship Agility status should submit a presentation for consideration by the Activities Sub-Committee.  Please note you should also submit your intended show date - it will be necessary to select a date that does not coincide with another Championship Agility show.

Applications should include details of the society's committee structure and show management team as well as providing information on the proposed show venue stating the facilities available for judges, competitors, dogs and spectators.

Presentations should be submitted to Joanna Nosalik, Canine Activities Department, The Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, W1J 8AB or by email:
