by Akela WholePrey
Rescue a dog. Rescue yourself.

Here are some of the latest arrivals but there are many more looking for active homes. Yes, there are quite a few collies but there are also other breeds of all sizes and, on occasion, some from outside the UK.

You can now add potential agility dogs direct, using the on-line form. This is a free service for rescue organisations and private individuals!

You've heard of parking the bus. What about parking the pram!

Agilitynet Facebook
We'll soon be on 24k membership.

Judge's A-List
The A-List is now on-line so anyone who judges at KC, UKA or independent shows can add and/or amend their entries themselves.  There are more than 400 judges around the UK listed so plenty of choice.

Events & Measuring
Several measurers have requested that we list official measuring sessions on Agilitynet so, from now on, we are hoping to have more dates and information of events.

Agilitynet Show Diary
Agilitynet has been listening to you again. We've had a request to add classes for Juniors to the Show Diary but will need the help of all the show organisers to identify shows with classes for kids.

In addition, thanks to the 4th Height Supporters Groups, we have a list of shows with LHO on the Show Diary.

Both these options can be accessed via the filter called Qualifiers on the Show Diary.

Senior Agility League
If you are over 55 and still competing, why not join in on the fun. All points count as long as there is a rosette awarded except 'just for fun' and training in the ring competitions.


Events added in the last two weeks.

'The Agilitynet site has really helped me in the past to find training courses for me to attend. I have done training courses all over the country and thoroughly enjoyed them.' Marianne Tembey


It's not be practical to list ALL the schedules available here for space reasons so we've opted for those that we've received in the last two weeks. The shows in red are closing this week so hurry if you want to enter. Schedules can be downloaded direct from the Show Diary page.

'Thank you from the whole of Active for allowing us to use Agilitynet. It was amazing. For the 2nd year on this service, we saw every show sold out all with waiting lists.' Stephen Bartholomew


Belle Goes to Crufts 2018
Small business trader, Belle McIntosh of FurBaby Casting, wondered having if having a stand at Crufts would be worthwhile so she jumped at the chance to go this year . went to Crufts to cover the world's largest dog show for Agilitynet.

In Memory
Very few people can be both visionary and practical, kind and understanding and, at the same time, great company. Lori Clifford, Sherborne Vale's long serving Club & Show Secretary, was one of those people. Her daughter Viv has written a lovely tribute.
