Registering a dog on the activity register
Before you can compete at a Kennel Club show you need to register your dog with the Kennel Club.  If the dog is not on the KC breed register then you can download the form for the Activity register here.

The Activity Register is open to all dogs, pedigree or crossbreed, and provides the opportunity for you and your dog to compete in fun activities such as Agility, Flyball, Heelwork to Music, Obedience and Working Trials.

A dog that is only registered on the activity register is not eligible to compete in Field Trials, Gundog Working Tests, Bloodhound Trials or Breed Shows.

 

Rules for Agility Dog Names
The Kennel Club rules for naming dogs to be entered on the Activity Register.
 

Measuring
Measuring - before you compete for the first time at  Kennel Club show you dog must be officially measured by two registered measurers.  Here's all the information you need on measuring plus a booklet to download that gives the official measuring guidelines.
 

 

Progression
When you compete at Kennel Club shows you gain points for clear rounds and places.  If you have one or more  wins you may have to progress to the next grade.  Progression is clearly explained on the Kennel Club pages, however,  the rules can be confusing sometimes.  If you're in any doubt you can contact the Kennel Club and they will do their best to help you.
 

The Agility Warrant
When you get clear rounds and places with clear rounds in a standard class your dog can earn points towards an agility warrant.  Find out how your dog can get letters after his name and how many points you need.
