While in the Novice Jumping classes Cathy Warcup & Ullara Tomas (Border Collie) took out the 600 Novice Jumping, Patricia Morano Boss & Menta the 500 Novice Jumping.

The Agility Dog Club of SA’s next competition is scheduled for Saturday 22nd May 2021

This canine competition is an opportunity for the public to come and watch 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 in the sport of show jumping it’s the fastest clear round that wins and it’s a sport nearly anyone can get involved in with the family pet. Action starts 9:00am and should run through until 6:00pm – entry and parking are free.
