2011-2012 Senior Agility League

 

 

 

Sponsored by Woof & Brew
Herbal teas for dogs

Watch out youngsters, the Seniors are coming. Agility has been built on the idea that 'agility is fun' but we think it should be changed to 'agility is fun for all.' That's regardless of breed, size or age. The wonderful thing about agility is that it is not just for the young and fleet of foot. If you can steer your dog around the course, then you have a chance for a place or clear round rosette. We want to recognise those handlers who are no longer young and that's why we've started the Senior Agility League (SAL)

Since 1979, when the sport of Agility was introduced at Crufts, it has grown and grown to be the most popular dog activity in the UK. Once addicted, agility people don't seem to retire. They get another dog. They take a joint supplement. If they can't run faster, they learn to run smarter. It's not uncommon now for handlers to still be competing in their 60s+.

And that's why we are setting up the Senior Agility League to celebrate age and mature handling. So if you are 55 years old or over, you are eligible to join the Senior Agility League (SAL) There is no annual membership fee or need to show your birth certificate.

To register just go to or if you just want to know what it's all about, go to the League home page

If you have any questions whatsoever, email the League administrator Ellen Rocco.

WOOF & BREW's blends are no storm in a teacup. Their range of healthy, herbal teas are packed full of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants providing dogs with a delightful tonic & treat to lap up. Their Adult, Performance & Senior blends, which are specifically created & blended to help mobility, energy levels, focus and rehydration, will no doubt be of great interest in all those taking part in the league! And since launching the company has truly set tongues - and tails - wagging, not least with their latest tea-infused, home-baked, biscuit range 'nom'. You can find out more information about WOOF & BREW and their growing range of products at their web site www.woofandbrew.com

Frequently Asked Questions

Q, How soon should I add my points?

A. As soon as possible so that everyone can see how you are doing in The League, though officially you have until The League closes on 21 December to add your points

Q. Some unaffiliated shows allow dogs to run at their own level rather than the level of the handler. For example, when dogs are KC Grade 3 but are allowed to run in Elementary under a different organisation. Can you claim these points?

A. Yes

Q. I have won out. Do I need to change my Grade?

A. No, your dog remains in the category it started in January of the current year for the duration of the year.

Q. What system should I use to calculate points from a KC Limited show?

A. The points are the same as a KC Open show, Unaffiliated shows have different points values. Click here to see Points Table.

Q. Why does my dog have to be registered with the Kennel Club?

A. The League needs set a criteria to work with such as levels, heights, recognised breeds etc.

Q. Do wins / places have to be clear rounds to count or can faults be involved?

A. A place is a place. Claim it.

Q. When I try to register or add in points, I keep getting sent back to the Login screen. What do I do.

A. Click here for help. It's all about cookies - and not the eatable kind.

Q. As a resident in N Ireland, I frequently compete in the Republic of Ireland under Irish KC rules and regs. Do wins under IKC rules count and if so, in which category -- KC or unaffiliated?

 A. As the Two Kennel Clubs have similar standards - rules and regs, your points would count as KC.
