The rising stars of the agility world took part in the prestigious Kennel Club Starters Cup Agility finals at London’s biggest dog event, Eukanuba Discover Dogs at ExCeL London on Saturday 22nd October 2016.

The Starters Cup is a showcase for the most talented newcomers in agility. Large, medium and small dogs, along with their handlers, qualified to compete in the Starters Cup finals by being placed at the Kennel Club International Agility Festival, which was held in August at Rockingham Castle, Northamptonshire.

The Starters Cup is for beginner dogs competing in Grades 1 and 2 in the UK or the equivalent overseas classes (e.g. Grade 1 under FCI rules or Novice in the USA). The top 12 large dogs together with the top six medium and six small dogs took part in the exciting final but only one was crowned winner in each height.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary said: “Agility is one of the most popular canine activities and you can see why with the Starters Cup. Congratulations to all winning dogs and their handlers – it’s fantastic to see potential agility stars of the future shine bright at Eukanuba Discover Dogs.”
