Dog agility is an action-packed and hugely exciting sport for you and your dog. It involves loads of obstacles for your dog (not you!) to run through, jump over and weave in and out of – and all against the clock! Not only does agility test your dog’s fitness, you can also show off your skills as a handler as you direct your dog around the agility course.
The YKC offers lots of different agility competitions in our ring at Crufts for members to compete in. Some of the classes have qualifiers, whereas others require members to gain points at standard Kennel Club licensed shows. The whole point of the YKC classes is to allow certain age ranges to compete against one another (6-11, 12-17 and 18-24) which helps to level the playing field, as well as allowing members to make friends their own age.
The YKC also creates an agility team to compete internationally as part of team GB at the European Open Juniors event, which is held annually. Each year there is a different host nation, with 2021's competition being held in Holland. If you want to know more about how to apply, click on the button below.
COVID-19 has affected all of the YKC's qualifiers in 2020 (for Crufts 2021). We dont know when we'll be able to have qualifiers running again, so until we know more, we have removed the qualification documents and qualifier dates from our site.
Please stay safe during this time.
