Cockapoos, unlike a pure bred dog, are unique and come in all shapes, sizes and colours with a diverse range of skills. There’s no better way to see an amazing variety of Cockapoos than by coming along to a cockapoo event, whether you are an owner, breeder or even just thinking about getting a Cockapoo.

The handler will then be instructed to return to their dog. The exercise is not complete until the dog is placed on the lead again the dog must not break the position it was left in whilst being put on the lead. The Arena Marshal will then signal end of exercise), Send Away (You will send your dog to a table 10/15/20/25 meter’s away, command the dog to stay/wait and the Arena Marshal will then instruct you to join your dog.)

A clear round over all obstacles in the fastest time will win the competition however, penalty points will be add for any refusals, missed jumps, poles knocked off or contact points not achieved. 10 points will be awarded for each obstacle completed, 5 points for a second attempt and 0 points for any further attempts or for missing the obstacle. A minimum time for the course will be in place (TBD) and for every second over that time 2 points will be deducted from your overall score.
You will have approximately 5 minutes to show the judges a trick or tricks you have trained your cute little dogs to do…..maybe we can take that bottle of champagne off Stephen!
Teams will compete in races against each other over a series of obstacles. This fun competition will be fast and furious, change over’s from team member to team member are going to be crucial, making sure the baton has been passed and your dog is under control before the next leg can commence
A1K9’s The Ones to Watch No pressure guys!
The event organiser, Mick Watson, who runs A1K9’s Dog School will have owners and cockapoos who attend his training classes competing at the games. He is running weekly Boot Camp sessions to help them prepare for the events. Here they are being put through their paces, all new to agility but doing really well with their basic training and having lots of fun…
- Dogs must be kept under control and on a lead at all times unless in the competing arena or in a designated free exercise area
- All dogs are entered for competition at their owner’s risk and whilst every care will be taken, the management of the event will not accept responsibility for loss, damage or injury however caused to dogs, persons or property whilst at the event.
- We respectfully remind competitors and owners with a dog to pick up and remove any fouling, as soon as possible.
- We are of course hoping for lovely weather but remember that if you feel hot your dog is likely to feel much hotter and will be thirsty so please look after your dog(s) to ensure they are kept cool and comfortable.
- If you are leaving your dog(s) in a vehicle or crate please ensure you have the necessary equipment (reflective covers, fan, cooling mat/coat, water etc.) so they are not hot, dehydrated, uncomfortable or distressed. If your dog is found to be at risk, forcible entry to your vehicle may be necessary without liability for any damage caused.
