Re: List of Qualifiers for Crufts & Olympia

The official lists are put on the KC website but they're not there yet. Generally the shows don't change much, so last year's ones will be a good starting point. http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/activities/agility/already-involved-in-agility/agility-at-olympia/ http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/activ...

Re: Rubber-surfaced contacts and lats

We have just put rubber sheets on our contacts and are puzzling about lats on our dog walk and A frame. I cannot find anything in the regulations which actually says you have to have lats Hi - they are called slats . http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/media/32141/agfbregs.pdf H(1)(B)3. Obstacl...

Re: Laryngeal paralysis

Sorry to hear that. There's a previous thread on this condition here, which might be useful:

Re: Anysize

I know if he's entered in anysize he can't run in standard classes at that show, but can I, for example, enter him at anysize one weekend & the next show at his normal grade, then maybe anysize at a show a few weeks later? That would be fine. In theory you'd have to check the 'small print' for...

Re: Your First Agility Class

I can't remember my first class either, but normally at least a low hurdle and a pipe tunnel.

Re: Wolf Dog

OK ... this seems to be the current position (published 2008): http://archive.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-pets/wildlife/protect/dwaa/hybrid.htm So third generation doesn't require a licence. But a direct wolf cross (as per the original post) certainly would. But it looks like many hybrids actually aren...

Re: Wolf Dog

I think the law on what requires a licence in the UK was changed some years back.

I once went to a talk from the 'Wolf Society of GB' and they brought a hybrid in at the end for people to see. It was pretty friendly and docile, but they would hardly have used one that wasn't!

IIRC you need to be able to prove how many generations they are away from a wild wolf in order to keep one without a licence. So I guess the paperwork would refer to that.

Re: clear round with time faults

In the event that this proposal gets passed and all courses are measured, the new complaint on FB will be that some judges wheel the course too tight.......any bets? :laugh: The new proposal is based on measuring straight-line distance between obstacles, so should be pretty consistent. Obviously i...

Re: clear round with time faults

Well I downloaded it from the KC website as part of the 'Judges' Guide to Equipment' the other day. It's no wonder people are confused! Ah, ok. Yes those are the current guidelines which came out about 12 months ago. They're OK speed-wise (the previous version was too tight for the higher grades)...

Re: clear round with time faults

The KC have issued more generous recommended course times recently which judges might not be aware of and which should be used in conjunction with measuring the course. It's not been officially issued yet. The revised guidelines were up for discussion at the Liaison Council meeting last week: ht...

Re: clear round with time faults

seems a shame we had nothing to show for our efforts :no: I'm guessing this was a (numerically) small class, otherwise you'd have got 4th place? As already mentioned faults are faults - it doesn't matter whether they are time or course ones. If you have either it isn't a clear round - it's impor...

Re: Charging Leisure Batteries

As above you really want an automatic charger that's intended for leisure batteries. This will charge at an appropriate rate, and switch to trickle (maintenance) when complete. They're not too expensive - I also use one that came from Halfords. This is the current version: http://www.halfords.com/...

Re: a bunny problem

Somebody had a rabbit at Supadogs one year and it escaped ... went hopping off round the camping area. Was eventually recaptured (unharmed) under a caravan.

I'm sure I remember PA calls last year about a lost tortoise.

But as Pam said, technically not allowed.
