Luke Taylor of Country Shows Agility, said 'We are really pleased to welcome Naylor Agility as the title sponsor of the Agility Challenge. The competition was set up by my dad, Graham Taylor in 2009, with the aim of offering competitors with lower grade dogs a chance of a final in a public environment. Finalists have gone on to many successes including competing at Crufts, London International Horse Show (Olympia) and representing their countries on the international stage. We have always had Naylor Agility products with our equipment and it's great to grow the partnership that has been going since the late 80s.'

About Naylor Agility
Naylor Agility is a UK-based company that manufactures and supplies high-quality agility tunnels in a variety of colours, lengths and different size. Spring wire determines the weight of the tunnel which are medium and heavy duty.

Medium weight tunnels can be used at home or for small clubs where you have a few dogs. Heavy weight tunnels can be used at clubs with a lot of 'traffic' or large/boisterous dogs where you need more stability.

Not only do our agility tunnels concertina down for easy storage, but they are also waterproof, easy to clean and durable.As all agility products are made right here in the UK, they have a lower carbon footprint than similar imported agility tunnels.
