All handlers will compete over the same course which will be set as a 1-3 agility class as per KC rules.

Handlers will be split into four categories, specifically:-

  1. Able-bodied handlers who agree to walk around the course at no more than a moderate speed

  2. Non-able-bodied handlers who have medical issues that affect their mobility

  3. Wheeled handlers for handlers who require a set of wheels to enable them to do agility

  4. Wheeled handlers for handlers who wish to test their skills with wheels
