Agility was first introduced to the UK at Crufts 1978 and the structure of the competition has not changed very much over the years. It’s a comparatively new form of dog competition, where the animal’s fitness and the handler’s ability to train and direct the dog over and through certain obstacles are tested.
It is fast, furious and a great favourite with competitors and spectators alike.
The Wealden Dog Agility Club will be running an all day event at the Show this year, which is a knock out competition, the fastest and most agile over a timed course will win. Some owners enter more than one dog but it is bringing a new dimension of competition to the Heathfield Show and we look forward to a spectacular event unfolding during the day before our eyes.
Entry form for 2019 will be available here in April.
