The Kennel Club Olympia Agility Stakes

Rules & regulations

All events must be judged under the appropriate Kennel Club regulations H & H(1) in force at the time of the event. Competitors entering any competition will be deemed to have agreed to abide by these regulations. These rules would be amended if any changes are made to Kennel Club agility regulations during the course of the competition year.

All heats must take place at Kennel Club licensed shows and the class name in the schedule should replicate exactly the name of the competition as stated in these regulations.

All Kennel Club supported competitions should be judged using standard marking.

If the entry for the heat exceeds the Kennel Club limit for a judge in a day, then the class will be equally split and another judge appointed for the second part. Qualifiers and reserves from that heat will be taken in equal proportion from each part, giving the total number originally required from that heat. Rosettes and awards remain unchanged if the heat is split.

Dogs entered in any heats must be eligible for the competition entered and judges retain the right to check the height of any dog or ask to see the height stated in the Kennel Club record book.

Competitors can qualify for Mini, Midi or Standard final, but it must be with different dogs. The first final a handler qualifies a dog for will be the final that particular dog competes in at Olympia
