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 BorderTerriers 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, Grade3, 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 1/1/2019). Any changes to the dogs grade/age/owners name, address etc should be made at the beginning of each year, changes cannot be made for grade changes/eligiblility for veterans after registration.
The League will run from 1st January 2019 to 31st December 2019.
Points can be gained from KC Open Shows, KC limited shows, KC Capped shows and UKA shows. Unaffiliated show results do NOT count towards the league.
Inter-club matches, Winter Leagues, Pay on the Day, Pairs, Team or Brace classes will not count towards the league.
Points from the following 'Special' classes will count towards points for the league: Helter Skelter, Take Your Own Line, Snooker, Time, Fault & Out, Beat The Clock, Gamblers, Power & Speed, Touch and Go, Allsorts/Any Size Jumping,'Steeplechase' style jumping classes.
Championship classes will count towards the league for points but only the agility and jumping qualifying rounds (not the final, which is entry restricted). Points for any 'Finals' for which you have to qualify (i.e. entry restricted) will not count for league points either.
In all categories points for more than one dog cannot be added together.
Points can still be gained if the dog is run by another handler.
Points will be awarded as follows: For Kennel Club AGILITY classes - 1st place 30 points to 20th place 11 points. Unplaced clear round 6 points. For Kennel Club JUMPING/SPECIAL classes - 1st place 25 points to 20th place 6 points. Unplaced clear round 3 points. For UKA AGILITY classes - 1st place 20 points to 4th place 17 points.

Points will only be awarded for places if a rosette is actually awarded.
It is the owners' responsibility to send in their points via e-mail or post.
Points must be claimed within one calendar month of the show taking place, after that time the points will be lost.
In the event of a draw, the dog with the highest overall placings in the year will win.
