Grade 6 or 7 agility handlers are invited to apply to be
considered to compete at the AKC Agility Invitational event to be
held in Orlando, Florida, USA on 12 and 13 December 2015, with a
warm-up class on 11 December.
Handlers will be chosen from those registering their interest by
the prestige events working party. Preference will be given to
those wishing to compete with their own dog (which does not have to
be a pedigree dog), otherwise applications will be considered from
handlers wishing to compete with a dog which is already registered
in the USA.
The Kennel Club will pay for the cost of the entry but no other
costs will be covered. Team GB clothing will be supplied and
guidance given as to the standard of behaviour expected from a
handler representing the Kennel Club.
This competition is open to all heights of dogs, but only one
dog per height can represent the UK. Actual dog heights will be
measured at registration as the American Kennel Club rules offer
five different jump heights, although the existing Large, Medium
and Small dog and jump height will need to be included with the
entry. More details can be provided upon request.
To register your interest and for further information please
email details of you and your dog to firstname.lastname@example.org
by 18 September 2015.
