Annual Awards – Club League
As well as award tables for individual dogs we also have a ‘League Table’ for clubs, which is loosely based on the football one. When you register your dog for any of the annual award categories you can specify which club you would like his/her points to go to. Obviously the more dogs contributing towards your club’s total the better!
Clubs enter the league table in Division 4, and can progress up through Divisions 3, 2, and 1 into the Premier League. At the end of each year (which finishes on December 31st) at least three clubs are relegated from the bottom of their Division to the one below, and the same number promoted from the top of the lower Division to take their places. It’s at least three because clubs with zero points automatically move down. So if there are three or more of those then the other clubs are safe, otherwise the ones with the lowest totals are used to make up the three that move down.
To answer some of the more common questions. First, if you have more than one dog they can be allocated to different clubs if you want. Second, you can only change the club for a dog during the first month of a ‘points year’ not part way through. And third, if your dog doesn’t have a club entered then you can add one at any point during the year. And obviously it’s important that everyone uses exactly the same name we probably won’t know that ‘HDDTC’ and ‘Happy Dogs’ are the same thing!
The league is a great way to get recognition for your club and trainers, and the winners of each division get their name added to a shield which is presented at The Agility Club AGM
Below is a list of current clubs listed in our database
If your club is not listed here, next time you login to your account details,
add a “Training Club” to your “My Details” and then allocate your dog to that Club. But please do check the list thoroughly, if a club is
registered twice but with slightly different names, then that club’s placing will be inaccurate.
