AGILITYNET STUFF

GDPR Compliance
News and information is at the heart of everything we do at Agilitynet. We are – and have always been - totally committed to protecting your privacy. Our promise to you is to hold your information securely and use it responsibly and transparently.

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 400 judges around the UK 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.

Senior Agility League
Over 55? This far more than 425 people have entered the 2018 League and more are joining ever day. It's free and fun.

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...

Going Vegan or Vegetarian
I
n 2016 Cat Clark was admitted to hospital with sepsis. When she returned home, she was left with Chronic Fatigue. Her doctors told her they couldn’t help her, so after some research, she decided to remove both dairy and meat from her diet. Sounds completely crazy and impossible, doesn't it, but it worked!

4th Height Supporters Group News & Views
The 4th Height Supporters Group has produced a table which compares the two new options to change jump heights to be discussed at the Kennel Club Agility Council meeting on 12th July.

Smiffy's Snackbar
Smiffy's is a family run business with great service at the top of our priorities! Visit them at shows for sausage rolls, burgers, chips, hot & cold drinks, freshly prepared baguettes and lots lots more.

LOW 550 Scotland
What a great report on the LOW 550 Scotland Jumping Cup Final 2018 at the Prestwick show from Judge Sara Hawkswell. Congratulations to the winners.

After 10 years of dedicated work, Kim Bailey has decided to retire from administering Opal's Spitz League, so Mark Bunyan and Danielle Walker have decided to set up a new league for Spitz breeds and their crosses in its place.

Animal Health Co Classic
The next heat of The Animal Health Company Classic took place in Essex on 19th May where the hosts Stonebridge DTC seem to have found a great venue alongside a carriage and polo club. All the winners from the third heat of The Animal Health Classic at Stoneridge, judged by Elaine Hudspeth.

Agility Challenge 2018
Judge Michelle set a fast and testing course for Heat 3 at the Worcester Premier Show

Berkeley make the great British dog beds. Each dog bed is designed to be stylish, ultra-comfortable, 100% fit for purpose and built to last.

Packa Shack
