Competitors Sought To Take Part In AKC Invitational Agility Event

14 September 2015    13:00

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 by 18 September 2015.
