Hi, I have been showing for 11 years on and off but my young bitch (13 months) has recently given me reason to think she would be really good at agility than regular showing due to her energy levels and how unbelieveably high she can jump with no effort.

I have done some agility with her mum for fun and really enjoyed it, but I think she will absolutely love it and may be worth trying some agility competition if she picks it up well. How do I get info about this does anyone know? I know it'll be much harder to work towards than just doing it for fun like I've done before.

My local dog traning centre does training for competition agility but I wanted to ask those that have done it with Dals as to whether it's worth a try or just do it for fun.

Any opinions or pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Lisa.

At Easter I started private agility lessons with my Dalmatian and my Labrador.

My trainer thinks that by the start of winter we will be ready for our first fun agility competition.

Initially, I will start out with fun competitions to familarise myself and the dogs with the atmosphere etc and then if I feel comfortable move onto to proper competitions.

Personally, I hear about and have attended some shows with my trainer (she is a grade 6 agility competitor). You should be able to find information on various shows at http://www.agilitynet.com/ under the shows tab

Remember your dog must be registered on the KC activity log or be KC registered and will have to be measured before entering official competitions.

Happy jumping!

Can some one explain why the Dalmatian needs to be KC registered to enter agility classes? what happens if you have adopted your Dally and part of the agreement is that you are not allowed to know the parentage nor apply for a replacement KC registration form.

Its not a problem.
To enter KC agility shows you can either be registered as normal as a pedigree breed with the KC OR:
you can register onto the activity register with the KC - which allows those of mixed breeds or those who do not have details of parentage of their dog.

The registration of your dog with the KC allows them to keep track of your wins etc and be able to give your dog awards etc if they reach those dizzy heights! Also dogs need to be measured to compete in the right classes and registration is a way of allowing the KC to make sure everyone competes fairly.

It still means any dog can compete, no matter what its background.

The KC link is here for more info:

Best wishes,

Thanks for letting me know, as I'm sure other owners have probably wondered the same thing. Laughing
