RESCUE US
The Rescue page is sponsored
by Akela WholePrey
Rescue a dog. Rescue yourself.

Here are some of the latest arrivals but there are many more looking for active homes. Yes, there are quite a few collies but there are also other breeds of all sizes and, on occasion, some from outside the UK.

You can now add potential agility dogs direct, using the on-line form. This is a free service for rescue organisations and private individuals!

AGILITYNET STUFF

CSJ Agility Open
CSJ is launching a brand new 4-day event next June at Addington Manor for ambitious handlers looking for a challenge.

Show Diary
The 2018 schedules are flooding in so you can plan your next few months of shows.

A special request to show organisers... Please please proofread your schedules carefully before you send them in so they do not have to be revised. The more eyes the better. It will save delay and confusion in the end.

Senior Agility League
Over 55 and still competing? Why not join the fun. All points count as long as there is a rosette awarded except 'just for fun' and training in the ring competitions. You do not have to re-register if you used the League last year.

Thank you to The Big Dog Bed Company for agreeing to sponsor SAL again and making it all possible.

E-VENTS & MEASURING

Events added in the last two weeks.

'The Agilitynet site has really helped me in the past to find training courses for me to attend. I have done training courses all over the country and thoroughly enjoyed them.' Marianne Tembey

SCHEDULES

It's not be practical to list ALL the schedules available here for space reasons so we've opted for those that we've received in the last two weeks. The shows in red are closing this week so hurry if you want to enter. Schedules can be downloaded direct from the Show Diary page.

'Thank you from the whole of Active for allowing us to use Agilitynet. It was amazing. For the 2nd year on this service, we saw every show sold out all with waiting lists.' Stephen Bartholomew

WHAT'S NEW...

Rosie's Last Agility Weekend
Rosie Pearson had not told anyone that she had decided to retire from the Agility until the N. Derbyshire show. Ten in a voice breaking with emotion, she announced at the end of her Champ final briefing that these would be the last 20 dogs she would ever judge.

The Flea Market
Need to sell your training place on an agility workshop or seminar? To help you out, we've added a new section for that on the Flea Market.

Judge's A-List
New year. New ideas. 18 years after the Millennium, Agilitynet has joined the 21st Century. The A-List is now on-line so judges can add and/or amend their entries themselves. There are more than 400 judges around the UK listed so plenty of choice.

Events & Measuring
Several measurers have requested that we list official measuring sessions on Agilitynet so from now one we are hoping to have more dates and information of events.

Agility Wisdom
When asked why she paid so much money for her daughter to do dog agility, Dawn Gilmour said that she didn't pay for her child to train her dog. It was a whole lot more.

Congratulations to Stuart Marshall who was the first person to get 100%. How good is that!
