ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

STARTERS AGILITY CHALLENGE RULES

1. The classes should be billed appropriately as either “The Agility Club Large Starters Challenge”, “The Agility Club Medium Starters Challenge” or “The Agility Club Small Starters Challenge” and scheduled accordingly as a Large, Medium or Small combined Grade 1-2 Agility class.

2. The competition will be run under the relevant Kennel Club Regulations in force at that time. All handlers will be deemed to have agreed to abide by these rules and regulations.

3. Each Heat is open to all Grade 1-2 dogs of the correct size for each heat, each heat will offer awards for the heights on offer as follows; Rosettes 1st-10th in Large Height, trophies to 1st and 2nd and Rosettes 1st-5th in Medium and Small Heights, trophy to 1st. Where the LHO is offered the Large, Medium and Small dogs will have combined awards.

4. ONLY dogs handled by an Agility Club member at the time of competing (date of joining/renewal must be prior to the first day of the show) may qualify for the Final. In order to compete in the Final you must also be a current member of The Agility Club on the day of the final.

5. The competition will normally consist of between ten to fifteen Heats. The two highest placed Agility Club members in each Heat will go through to the Final, providing they have achieved an awarded place as detailed in paragraph 3.

6. Both handler and dog may only qualify once for each height Final. Each handler and dog pairing may only qualify once for the final. In the event of the highests placed dog(s) having qualified previously, the next highest placed dog(s) will qualify.

7. Finalists should normally compete at the height at which they qualified however if a heat takes place at a show with no LHO, they can choose to compete at the final at LHO. Should a handler qualify at LHO and wish to compete at FHO in the final this would be permitted. (Dogs will NOT be allowed to compete at LHO if qualified at FHO in a heat offering both height options).

The Agility Club Starters Challenge is one of the finals held at the Agility Club's Championship Show and has now been running since 1997.

There are heats held at various shows throughout the country and each one is an agility class available for anyone to enter for combined grades 1-2. However, only the 2 highest placed Agility Club members in the top 10% of the class can qualify for the final so it is important that you keep your membership up-to-date to save disappointment!

Please ensure that your contact details including an up to date email address are correct on your membership details. All contact regarding qualification and details for the Final will be made by email.

Please make sure that when entering any of the Agility Club Starters Challenge qualifing heats. That your Name and the spelling of your name match the details on your Agility Club membership. Failure to do this may result in you not qualifing for the Final.
