Two Major Names Continue Agility Support into 2018
Getting the 2018 agility show season off to a great start is the news that both Agria Pet Insurance and The Animal Health Company will be sponsoring agility sport for another year!
The competition is open to all sizes of Agility dogs in a steeplechase style course featuring the Westcotts Water Jump!
For The Animal Health Company, this is their fifth year supporting the sport. Their exciting steeple chase competition is a thrilling event that’s unique to the agility world with a course that always includes a bespoke Westcotts Water Jump.
With the motto 'Committed to animal care,' The Animal Health Company is well known for producing a leading range of complementary feeds for horses and dogs. The significant and ongoing research the company carries out to produce award-winning products to increase the well-being, comfort and health of animal consumers creates an outstanding contribution to the world of animal healthcare.
With qualifiers across the country, there are 12 opportunities in 2018 for the top five to join us at the autumn final to seek a share of over £100 of prize money.

Westcotts it is formulated with high levels of chicken and rice, is hypoallergenic, pro biotic and has no added flavourings or preservatives produced from quality ingredients thus helping dogs with a sensitive palate.

Many fields on the way up the A15 to the Scunthorpe Champ show had water lying in them so the arrival of the Westcotts Water Jump for the first of 2018 heats was probably a bit over the top.
Well done to all the organisers and everyone connected to the show including the landowners. With a few roadway changes, all the rings and surrounding ground - whilst soft - easily accommodated Scunthopre's 4000+ entries across the weekend. The local Travel Lodge must have thought Christmas had come early with the increase in trade.
The fast moving competition, under the watchful eye of judge Doc Doherty, produced it's usual crop of 'if onlys' as well as five successful finalists.
Scunthorpe qualifiers for the Final are:-
Heat 2 see us joining the Hatton Festival where we look forward to finding our next five qualifiers for the 2018 Final.
Heat 3 of The Animal Health Company Classic took us to Essex on 19th May where our hosts Stonebridge DTC seem to have found a great venue alongside the Ashfields Carriage and Polo Club.
I have no idea why our judge Elaine Hudspeth missed the photo call - although I am told she was seen in the ice cream queue. With all three sizes of Agility dogs able to take part, the course laid influenced the outcome and seems today all our winners were legless afterwards!
Congratulations to our finalists and you will need to book Saturday 24 November 2018 in your dairies to join us at the final. More details soon.

If you have ever been to Matlock Bath, you will know that end of the pier feeling about the place with a range of motorbikes on a sunny evening that would gladden the heart of any enthusiast. Just down the road peace and tranquillity reigned at Cromford where Dog Vegas hosted Heat 5 of the Animal Health Company Classic 2018.
