The Kennel Club sends its best wishes to Agility Team GB who will be making their way across the Channel next week to compete at the FCI Agility World Championships in Bologna, Italy.

The Agility World Championships will take place from 8th- 11th October 2015 at the Unipol Arena in Bologna, and will see pedigree dogs from all over the world compete for the sought after title of Agility World Champion. The British team includes three times Agility World Champions, Natasha Wise and her dog Dizzy.

Team Manager Mark Laker said: "As the FCI World Championships draw closer, Agility Team GB are making their final preparations for what promises to be another fantastic event. Our dogs and handlers are looking really good, having fine-tuned their training plans for this year's World Championships over the last few weeks' practice sessions. I know they will all deliver their top performance in Italy and I would like to wish them all the very best."

Agility Team GB is kindly supported by the Kennel Club, CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds, Gencon, Agility 1st, NTU and Eurotunnel Le Shuttle, the Kennel Club's preferred cross-channel partner. The official equipment supplier is First Contact.

Ceri Rundle from CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds, said: "Everyone at CSJ wishes Agility Team GB the very best of luck when competing at the FCI World Championships in Italy. You have all done really well to secure your place within the team so let's hope that extra bit of luck carries with you throughout the competition.  Go Team GB!"
