The Border Terrier Agility League is open to Border Terriers only.
All dogs must be purebred, but they don't have to have a KC Pedigree (as we appreciate that some Border Terriers which have been rescued may not have papers). No crossbreeds allowed.
All heights of Border Terrier (Small/Medium) will compete in the league against each other in their respective categories i.e. Grade 1, Grade 2 etc
The categories are as follows: Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3, Grade 4, Grade 5, Grade 6, Grade 7. From the above categories there will also be a trophy awarded for the Best Veteran (seven years and over on 1/1/2020). Any changes made to the dogs grade/age/owners name, address etc must be made at the beginning of each year, changes cannot be made for grade changes/eligibility for veterans after registration. If a dog wins out of a Grade, during the season he/she will remain in the grade that they started the year in.
The league will run from 1st January 2020 to 31st December 2020
Points can be gained from KC Open shows, KC limit shows, KC capped shows and UKA shows. Unaffiliated shows do NOT count towards the league..
