The rising stars of the agility world took part in the prestigious Kennel Club Starters Cup Agility Finals at the Discover Dogs event at Earls Court this weekend (Saturday 9thNovember).

The Starters Cup is a showcase for the most talented newcomers in agility. Large, medium and small dogs, along with their handlers, qualified to compete in at the Starters Cup finals at the Kennel Club International Agility Festival, which was held in August at Rockingham Castle, Northamptonshire.

The Starters Cup is for beginner dogs competing in Grades 1 and 2 in the UK or the equivalent overseas classes (e.g. Grade 1 under FCI rules or Novice in the USA).

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary says: "Discover Dogs is a celebration of the many roles dogs play in our society, and the Starters Cup Agility Finals gives less experienced dogs and handlers the chance to compete at a major show in front of a large crowd.

"Agility is the fastest growing dog sport and these finals may well have given us a glimpse of some of the potential winners of the future."

The following were announced as winners of the Kennel Club Starters Cup Agility Finals:

Small

1st - Katie Doyle with Patchy Dude

2nd - Camilla Westmacott with Treasured Bruce

3rd - Isaac Hartley with Bella Ella
