Opportunity For Agility Clubs To Host Olympia and Discover Dog Qualifiers In 2018

6th November 2017 - 11:23 AM

The Kennel Club is offering registered agility clubs the opportunity to host qualifiers for Olympia and Discover Dogs 2018 after the withdrawal of three societies.

The following heats are on offer:

  • Kennel Club Olympia – Large (6-7)
  • Kennel Club Olympia – Small
  • Kennel Club Discover Dogs Small/Mixi Pairs

This is an excellent opportunity for more registered societies to get involved with the qualifiers for two of the Kennel Club’s prestige events. The Kennel Club Olympia Agility Stakes, which is sponsored by Skinner’s pet foods, will be held in December 2018 whilst Discover Dogs will be held in October 2018.

In order to be eligible, societies must be Kennel Club registered. For Olympia they must hold an agility show prior to 31st July 2018 and for Discover Dogs it must be prior to 31st August. Eligible societies will be chosen based on the geographical location of applicants, taking into account the locations of societies who are already hosting heats.

Show organisers wishing to stage the qualifiers are invited to write to the Working Dog Activities Team, The Kennel Club, Clarges Street, London, W1J 8AB, or by emailing, by 30th November 2017.  For further information, please contact the Working Dog Activities Team on 020 7518 1013.

Lists of current qualifying heats for Olympia and Discover Dogs 2018 and Crufts 2019 are available on the Kennel Club website at:
