Lower height options Rugby DTC are not offering Lower Height Options in this competition because the nature of the event means that a significant number of classes are not eligible for runs at the lower height.

ELIGIBILITY FOR CLASSES In the following definitions of classes First Prizes or other prize wins are those gained in standard classes at any Kennel Club licensed. Championship Agility, Premier Agility, Open Agility Shows or Limited Agility Shows, i.e. special classes and invitational events excepted). Only a first place with a clear round completed within course time set by the judge will count towards grade progression. Standard classes may be scheduled for Agility Shows, as Agility classes or Jumping classes. All standard classes must contain the Weaving Poles obstacle. Standard Agility classes must contain the following elements: “A Ramp”, Dog Walk and See-Saw With this proviso classes are defined as follows:Class Structure: A Class may either be held as a Graded Class or a Combined Class. A Graded Class may be scheduled for one or more consecutive Grades with separate results and awards issued for each grade. A Combined Class may be scheduled for more than one consecutive grade with one overall set of results. Progression: Progression from each Grade will require one Agility win or three Jumping wins in standard classes at that grade, at either Full Height or the Lower Height Option, except that progression from Grade 5 will require 3 wins at Grade 5, one of which must be an agility class. Progression from 6 will require 4 wins at Grade 6, two of which must be agility classes. Results from Combined Classes will only count towards progression from the dog’s current grade. Points Progression: At the handler’s discretion a dog may progress up to Grade 4 by winning 100 points at each grade, using the Agility Warrant points scheme (Regulation K3.c refers), except that there is no requirement for a minimum number of agility points. If this method of progression is selected, the handler must ensure the Show Secretary signs the dog’s Agility Record Book at the first show entered at the higher grade. There is no time limit on this progression, however once a dog has progressed, it cannot return to a previous grade. Progression on points must be done prior to the closing date of entries. It is not possible to change a grade on points once the entries have closed. Lower Height Option. Societies may offer the Lower Height Option to all dogs in that height category and may be offered at all grades. It is to be run as part of any Standard class as defined in the regulations and must be clearly identified in the schedule. When the Lower Height Option is scheduled a dog may only be entered at either the Full Height or at the Lower Height and cannot compete at a different height in any class at that competition. For these purposes a competition shall be defined as all classes covered within the same schedule. Each relevant class will have two height with a change part way through to higher/lower the jump heights and competitors must run at their entered height. The order in which the heights will run must be detailed on the ring cards/ring plan. There will be only one course walking at the start of the class. In a class where the Lower Height Option is available show organisers may offer one set of awards by combining the results of each height or may offer separate awards for each height category. STANDARD CLASSES Only first prizes and points gained in standard classes at Kennel Club licensed Agility Shows may be used for progression through the classes. (A dog is only eligible for one grade) In defining the eligibility of the owner or handler for Grade 1, the three jumping wins and points progression referred to in the definition apply only to one dog and not an accumulation of dogs Grade 1 (Elementary) Grade 2 (Starters) Grade 3 (Graduate) Grade 4 (Novice) Grade 5 (Intermediate) Grade 6 (Senior) Grade 7 (Advanced) Championship Class

Eligibility This event is open to teams from Kennel Club Registered and Listed Status clubs which, at the time of entry to the qualifying heat, have indicated in their Kennel Club registration details that they have an interest in agility or are an Agility Listed Status Club. Each team entry will consist of 4 dogs from the same height category, with 4 different handlers, plus up to 2 reserves. Only dogs entered in the team or as reserves at the qualifying event will be permitted to compete for that team in the final should a change of dog be necessary. Only handlers that competed at the qualifying event or those listed as reserves will be permitted to compete for that team in the final should a handler be unable to compete. All team members must be members of the club at the time of qualifying for the CRUFTS Teams Final. Dogs do not have to be entered into any other class at a qualifying heat and a team entry will constitute acceptance of the Organising Club and Kennel Club Rules and Regulations. Clubs may only qualify one team in each height category for the final at CRUFTS 2017. Once a handler or dog has run for a Kennel Club Registered / Listed Status Club in a CRUFTS Team Agility qualifying event they cannot run for another Kennel Club Registered / Listed Status Club in a qualifying event at the same height category during the qualifying year. (Handlers or dogs entered as reserves may run or be entered as reserves for a different team, provided they did not run in the original team’s heat). Competition Rules The competition will be held under Kennel Club rules and regulations for Agility and any handler entering the competition will be deemed to abide by these rules and regulations.

The winners of each heat will be invited to CRUFTS 2017 to compete in the Small, Medium or Large Finals. In the event that the winning team or club in a heat has already qualified for the final then the highest placed unqualified team in that heat will be invited to the final at CRUFTS
