The reason for the Olympia International’s popularity is because of its unique blend of top class competition and amazing displays mixed with its very special Christmas atmosphere.  The crowd is enthralled and entertained by a wide range of activities, from displays by the Household Cavalry to Shetland Pony Racing.  Dog agility started at Olympia in 1979, just one year after its introduction at Crufts.  In the early days it was definitely seen as being a bit of fun and something different to amuse the audience but it has now evolved into a top class Agility competition, encompassing five separate finals, with the UK’s most skilled handlers and dogs qualifying and competing each year.  In fact, the dog agility finals now vie with the main show jumping class as the most memorable part of each performance, according to audience exit polls.

Olympia features a separate agility final on each of its five days, offering handlers the chance to compete in front of an audience of ten thousand noisy supporters:

This new association was launched officially at DFS Crufts on Friday 12th March from the GWF Nutrition stand (126) in Hall 5.

All agility enthusiasts were invited to come along to the stand throughout DFS Crufts to find out more about this initiative. GWF Nutrition believes that Joint Aid for Dogs is the perfect partner for canine agility athletes and will be distributing a free sample to every entrant in all the heats at selected qualifying shows for this competition across the country.
