AGILITYNET STUFF

Agilitynet FB
Agilitynet FB has reached a whopping 26,000 members! Welcome to all new members.

Judges A-List
Make one of your resolutions for 2019 to check your entry on the Agilitynet Judges A-List which lists more than 500 agility judges in in place? We are currently updating the list and taking new applications. If you have experience judging at KC, UKA or shows or are just starting out, you can get a free listing.

Measuring
It can be difficult to find an official KC Measurer if you are new to agility or have a new dog just starting out. A number of measuring sessions are now listed on the Events & Measuring page and/or the Show Diary. Now including measuring sessions for Scottish Shows thanks to Dawn Gilmour. Use the Qualifier filter and select Measuring.

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 500 UK judges listed so plenty of choice.

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.

E-VENTS & MEASURING

Events added in the last two weeks.

SCHEDULES

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

WHAT'S NEW...

Senior Agility League
Mega congratulations to Freda Wallace and Meisterwerk Tika AW/D, Overall Winner of the 2018 Senior Agility League with an amazing 3140 points. Well done to all the divisional winners and good luck to all in the 2019 League. Results now available.

Senior Agility League Hall of Fame
We have two new nominees to what we think is the first Agility Hall of Fame in the world. Welcome to Jane Cameron who hung up her running shoes this year and Lesley Wilks' Catch a Dream (13) who ran her last KC class in September.

The Agria Agility Challenge 2019
Agria Pet Insurance will support the 2019 Agility Challenge. The final will be held in September in the Top Dogs Arena at The Malvern Autumn Show.

Working with Dogs
The Agility Club has appointed Jill Spurr as the permanent Editor of The Agility Voice. She brings a wealth of experience of agility and wider interests with dogs, as well as print and publishing.

Pick of the Litter
Confused by the new KC regulations? Here's an easy to understand progression chart.

Agility League for Spitz (ALFS)
Mark Bunyan reports on the very successful inaugural year of the League for Spitz and their crosses. It was a very good year especially for Kevin Butler and Ice-Baku.

LOW 550 Scotland
Doc Docherty will be judging the LOW 550 Scotland Final in August. If you want to run Doc’s final course with the chance to win great trophies, a 3m pipe tunnel or a free space on training workshop, be sure to put the dates in your 2019 diary.

New Years Honours List
Mega congratulations to everyone who won out in 2018. This year we have a record number of dog/handler partnerships on the list - more than 1900! Thank you to our sponsors, Agria Pet Insurance for their support.

Competing with a Xolo
it takes a special kind of crazy to consider training a dog with zero work ethic for agility, but that's what Sarah Hamblin has done - and it's working.

Trick Training
Nicola Smith believes that all behaviours including agility are 'tricks' to our dogs. This year she decided to create a Christmas trick video to give her injured G7 Collie something to do on an enforced break. So she created a delightful holiday film A Christmas Tail which you will love.

Flyball & Agility
Beth Rachlis thinks that dogs can do both and pick up the other sport more easily than those who haven't trained in either discipline. And she's proved it. With comments from Ellen Schofield, another successful agility/flyballer.

FCI Agility Worlds 2018
The AWC in Sweden on 4th -7th October was Kathryn Stickney's third consecutive AWC with her Working Cocker Coco and definitely the one for which she felt the most ready.

Longleat the Legend
For many people Longleat was and forever will be their all-time favourite agility show venue. In  those doing agility seemed come second to the social side. Shirley Elkins shares her memories of those days when one woke up to the roar of lions!

PAWC 2018 - Where Anything Is Possible
Nigel Perry has a degenerative disc disease and is classed as disabled, so it wasn't surprising that his agility journey  didn't get off to a great start. He persevered, however, and this year he was asked to be a member of Team UK at the IMCA / PAWC 2018.

Bereavement
For many of us in the dog agility world, our lives revolve around our dogs and we can be devastated by their loss. Agility competitor and pet bereavement counsellor Emma-Jane LaRoche writes about this sad and difficult time and how to deal with it.

QUALIFIERS & FINALS

There's an extra 'run for fun' qualifier for every Grade level now, not just the Advanced dogs. You can find a qualifier to suit you by using the Qualifiers button on the Show Diary page. Don't be shy. Go for it!
