The Kennel Club is delighted to announce a three year partnership between Agility Team GB and Gencon from 2015 to 2017.

Gencon, a leading manufacturer of dog training headcollars, including the unique Gencon Allin1, joins the Kennel Club, CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds, Agility1st, Eurotunnel Le Shuttle and First Contact in supporting Great Britain's top dog agility team ahead of the team competing in the European Open Finals and FCI Agility World Championships.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, commented: "Agility Team GB plays an important role in developing the latest performance techniques in the sport, identifying new talent in top flight agility, caters for all breeds and all ages of handlers, and promotes the overall development of the sport.

"We are pleased to have Gencon as a new partner and hope their support for Agility Team GB will ensure the team's success continues."

Agility Team GB will compete in the European Open Finals from 24th-26thJuly 2015 in Reiterstadion, Germany and in the FCI Agility World Championships to be held in Bologna, Italy from 8th- 11thOctober 2015.

Commenting on the new partnership, Andrew Treleaven, Director of Gencon, said: "Irene Holbrook, who designed the original Gencon product, was a very keen and successful agility competitor who couldn't find a product that matched her needs and so designed her own. We are delighted that the Gencon Range is still a favoured product within the world of agility and is now recommended by both the Guild of Dog Trainers and the RSPCA. By supporting Agility 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."

Agility Team GB's top successes include Natasha Wise and her Border Collie, Dizzy, who have been crowned World Champions three times and Sian Illingworth with her Border Collie, Maybe, winning the European Open Championship.
