The Kennel Club has announced the list of qualifying events for Crufts 2012 for the Small Dog Agility classes. This covers the Small Circular Knockout, the Small Agility Challenge and the Small/Mixi Pairs - these classes are in addition to the Singles and Team competitions.
The Kennel Club is currently organising qualifiers at Agility shows during 2011 to find finalists to compete at Crufts in March 2012. The majority of these qualifying heats will continue to be held at the shows which staged them during 2010, but following a decision that Ely & District DRC would only hold one set of qualifiers, the Scottish Kennel Club has been awarded the other set of qualifiers to be held at its August show.
The confirmed list of qualifiers is:
Axstane Agility Club 18 June
Lune Valley DTC 26 June
Wellingborough DTC 2 July
Derbyshire Dog Agility Club 30 and 31 July
Ely & District DTC 26 August
Scottish Kennel Club 27 and 28 August
Letchworth (First Garden City) DTC 3 September
Trent Park DTC 18 September
Lists of existing qualifying heats for Olympia 2011, Crufts 2012, and the European Open 2012 are available on the Kennel Club website at: www.thekennelclub.org.uk.
