Free Agility dog measuring offered by The Kennel Club

25 January 2016    00:00

The Kennel Club are offering agility competitors the opportunity to get their dog measured for free in time for the new agility season. The measuring seminars, which are being organised as part of the 2016 Measurers Accreditation process, will take place over four dates in February, March and April 2016.

Measuring will be conducted by the measurers with the Accreditation Panel and Kennel Club staff present. If a dog has not been measured before, then this will count as their first measure and will be recorded in the dog's record book. If it's the dog's second measure then this will also be recorded as such. For any dogs which have already been measured twice, this measure will not count and will not be recorded or have any bearing on the dog's existing height category.

There will be a limited number of record books available on the day, but handlers for first time measures are advised to obtain one first and bring this along, having already completed the dog's details.

Whilst all size categories of dogs are welcome, the event is particularly interested in small and medium sized dogs for the accreditation process.

The seminars are being held on the following dates:

Sunday 7th February - Avon Agility Show, West Kype Farm Equestrian Centre, Strathaven, ML10 6PR

Sunday 6th March - Kennel Club Building, Stoneleigh, Coventry, Warwickshire, CV8 2LZ 

Friday 1st April  - Leeming Village Hall, Mill Lane, Leeming, Northallerton. DL7 9SS

Sunday 10th April  - Chieveley Village Hall, Chieveley, Newbury, Berkshire, RG20 8TE

Handlers may register to have their dogs measured by emailing: Please include the following information within the email:

  • Which location/venue you wish to attend
  • How many dogs you will be bringing with you
  • What height categories the dogs fit into; small, medium or large (or for a first time dog what height category you believe they fit into)
  • If you are only able to attend for a limited period of time, please state the times accordingly

Once registered, an email will be sent to you with information about timings and joining instructions about the relevant day.
