The next meeting of the Kennel Club Agility Liaison Council will
be held at the Kennel Club on Thursday 21 January 2016. Proposals
for inclusion on the agenda should reach the Agility Liaison
Council Secretary, at the Kennel Club by Friday 23 October
Each eligible society or an individual may submit items for the
agenda, through a council representative. Proposals must be
concise, and if an amendment or an additional regulation is
proposed, the regulation number must be given. All submissions must
be signed by the society/individual and the representative.
There has recently been a change to the council proposal
structure. As of January 2016, an embargo has been placed on any
regulation changes within a three-year period, with the exception
of urgent matters, those currently under discussion prior to this
date, or any matter relating to the health and welfare of the dog
or handler. The reason behind the change is that frequent
amendments to regulations have made it quite difficult for
competitors and judges to keep up to date. It is also felt that
regulation changes are not being given enough time for an impact to
be seen before amendments are submitted.
All items for inclusion on the agenda should be sent to the
Working Dog Activities Team, The Kennel Club, Clarges Street,
Piccadilly, London, W1J 8AB or by email to
agility@thekennelclub,org,uk. A full list of Agility Liaison
Council Representatives can be found at: /activities/agility/agility-liaison-council/.
