International Agility Festival - details
A particular attraction of the annual Festival is that (like and Kennel Club licensed agility show in the UK) it is open to any dog, as long as it is registered on one of the Kennel Club’s registers - Breed or Activity - making it one of the few world-class agility competitions to be open to pedigrees, rescue dogs and crossbreeds alike.
The Festival always includes graded classes for all height categories and all grades of agility dog and handler, so that everyone gets a chance to compete at their own level at the UK's largest agility show. With a series of cup classes for all levels - the Starters Cup, Novice Cup, British Open and Nations Cup - as well as special classes for younger handlers and YKC members, there are many opportunities for the best performing dogs to secure a place at Crufts or at Discover Dogs
For the hundreds of visitors and spectators who now come to enjoy the Festival atmosphere, there are also opportunities to participate: 'Have a Go' agility to try out their own dogs' aptitude and their own handling skills, and a Companion Dog Show with pedigree and novelty classes. Plus of course a wide range of trade stands offering goods for both humans and dogs, all adding to the Festival fun!
