AGILITYNET STUFF

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.
