The dog agility competition season is well underway and Q-Ball is preparing to welcome all competitors from the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and Washington State to their biggest trial of 2012. It will be held over three days, March 9, 10 and 11, at the Cloverdale Agriplex.

Q-Ball will have four experienced judges — Brigitte Hole, Christine Woodley, Kim Reed and Nicole Le Blanc — for this two-ring indoor trial with starters, advanced and masters events.

Competitors can choose from 30 different events in which to run and an extra event offered is the Weave Pole Challenge with the winner to receive the “sweetened pot” of $250.

A professional photographer will be in attendance to take photos of competitors running with their dogs and agility equipment will be available for purchase.

Premiums and contact information are available on the website, http://www.q-ballagility.ca

Spectators are welcome to drop in and see some excellent dog and handler teams. There is no fee to come and watch, just come and cheer and applaud.
