Agility Team GB performance weekend announced

The Kennel Club has announced the date and judge for the Agility Team GB Squad Performance Weekend, which will be held at the Brackenhurst Campus at Nottingham Trent University.

The performance weekend will be held from Friday 6th - Sunday 8th April. The judge has been confirmed as Seppo Savikko from Finland and assistant judge will be Neil Ellis.

Dogs and handlers who are not part of the 2018 squad may enter on Sunday 8th April 2018 to gain experience on courses designed and judged by an international judge. The coaching team will be looking for a maximum of 12 dogs (four from each height) from the Sunday competition to be invited on to the 2019 squad for the development of dogs and handlers.

The coaching team will be focusing on dogs and/or handlers new to international agility competitions and who show potential as future squad members.

The day is capped at 150 dogs in total, ideally a maximum of 50 dogs per height: large, medium and small. Dogs must be competing at grades 6 or 7.

The closing date for entries is 5th March 2018.
