Agility Dog Club of SA May Games - May 25

Agility Dog Club of SA hosts the May Games Double Trials featuring Strategic Pairs, Gamblers and Snooker classes ...

This Saturday 25th May the Agility Dog Club of SA (ADCSA) hosts the May Games Double Trials at Pedigree Park, German Shepherd Dog Club grounds in West Beach, starting at 9 am.

After the sport drew good crowds at previous public events including the recent ADCSA evening Games trials in late March and day agility and jumping trials in late April this competition sees the return of the popular Gamblers ring (similar to Top Score in showjumping). 

This trial is another opportunity for the public to learn about a sport that involves handlers running courses with their dogs and directing them through a course of jumps, tunnels, weaving poles and other obstacles. 
As with the equestrian sport of showjumping it’s the fastest clear round that wins and it’s a sport nearly anyone of any age can get involved in with the family pet. 

Dog agility is a sport suitable for most breeds with canines as small as Pugs and Jack Russell Terriers right up to large breeds such as Dobermans, Golden Retrievers, Collies and Labradors plus working breeds such as Kelpies, Border Collies and Australian Shepherds.

Handlers can be any age with everyone from teenagers to seniors taking part in training and competing dogs.

If spectators are interested in looking to join a club and start training there will be information available at the event.

Action starts in the morning at 9am and should run through until 5pm – entry and parking is free and families are welcome to bring a picnic blanket and find a spot ringside to watch the action with onsite catering available.

When: Saturday 25th May 2019, from 9:00am until 5:00pm.

Where: German Shepherd Dog Club of SA grounds, Pedigree Park, adjacent Barrett Reserve, West Beach Road, West Beach, SA
