Opportunity For Agility Shows To Host Olympia 2016 Qualifiers

20 April 2015    10:00
 

The Kennel Club has announced it will be increasing the number of competition heats for Olympia in 2016, giving more registered societies the opportunity to host a Kennel Club qualifier and competitors more opportunities to qualify.

Whilst the majority of these qualifying heats will continue to be held at the shows which staged them during 2014 and 2015, the number of heats is being increased to bring each competition in line with one another. Therefore all of the competitions are looking for extra host societies for heats as follows:

  • Kennel Club Olympia - Small - 4 new heats needed
  • Kennel Club Olympia - Medium - 7 new heats needed
  • Kennel Club Olympia - Large - 2 new heats needed
  • Kennel Club Olympia - Large Novice - 3 new heats needed
  • Kennel Club Olympia - Large ABC - 3 new heats needed

This is an excellent opportunity for more registered societies to get involved with the qualifiers for one of the Kennel Club's prestige events.

In order to be eligible, societies must be Kennel Club registered and must hold an agility show prior to 31stJuly 2016. Eligible societies will be chosen based on the geographical location of applicants compared with societies who are already hosting heats.

Show organisers wishing to stage the qualifiers are invited to write to the Working Dog Activities Team, The Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, London, W1J 8AB, or by emailing agility@thekennelclub.org.uk, by 6th May 2015.  For further information, please contact the Working Dog Activities Team on 020 7518 1013.

Lists of current qualifying heats for Olympia and Discover Dogs 2015 and Crufts 2016 are available on the Kennel Club website at: www.thekennelclub.org.uk/item/2882.
