In the next couple of days we leave for the first of this years international agility championships. the European Open for Juniors (EOJ) in Luxembourg.
This year 500 dogs and their young handlers from 24 countries will be attending these championships that continues to grow in both size and the level of competition.
Agility Team GB are sending a team of 24 dogs this year at all three height categories and in the two age groups, children and juniors. The Team were selected in February and have been training and preparing hard since then getting ready for these Championships.

After the EOJ we have a week back and then it’s off to Italy for the Adult European Open (EO). An exciting month of top agility competition.
I’d like to thank CSJ for all their support sponsoring the team. You’ve enabled these juniors to compete with other top handlers from around the world, gain valuable life skills and experience from an international championships and start their pathway to future top level agility competition.
