The CSJ Agility Open

World Class Agility Competition
For All

What is the CSJ Agility Open?

The CSJ Agility Open has been created in response to demand for a premier agility event unlike any other currently scheduled in the UK. 

It will give top level agility partnerships – and those aspiring to be – a unique opportunity to experience all the pressures of world-class competition, on appropriate and intelligently-designed courses, adjudicated consistently by qualified and experienced judges in a superb venue.

Test your agility ability with 14 runs over 5 exciting events including the CSJ National Championships, the Biathlon and the Pentathlon.  Go all out for speed in the Steeplechase and practice your strategic skills to triumph in the Games Challenge. 

The CSJ Agility Open is different because:

It is Open to All…

No membership or affiliation with any organisation is required in order to enter this event.  It is open to all breeds of dogs aged 18 months and over and to all handlers, no matter at which grade or level they may run in other organisations.

The courses…

Will be appropriate to the needs of agility partnerships competing at the top level, nationally and internationally. The event also provides a unique opportunity for ambitious lower grade handlers to experience all the pressures of world-class competition.

The CSJ Agility Open will only appoint British and International judges with proven ability and experience.  They will not just work individually, but as a team, to create intelligently-designed courses which:

  • Are appropriately challenging
  • Test a wide variety of skills and abilities throughout the event
  • Use logical minimum and maximum distances
  • Are marked consistently according to clear and thorough rules and regulations that leave little or nothing to “judge’s discretion”
  • Consider dog and handler safety as their highest priority
  • Are great fun to run

Ashleigh Butler

"First class event. One that I love doing, and will always prioritise. Thank you to you and your team for all of your hard work"

Sylvester Emms 

"I just wanted to drop a message saying how fantastic the csj open was, I've never been before as relatively new to agility,  it was great to have the opportunity to run high level courses in a competition environment I'll never experience elsewhere. Fantastic job, felt so smoothly run especially considering the circumstances.  Definitely aim to come again"

Cassie Webster

"Thanks for an awesome event, was my first and will definitely be back. Love how you're giving us lower grass roots the opportunity to run these type of events with our dogs, I will never make the worlds etc but its great to experience a small bit of what it would be like. Courses and judges were great"

Rhiannon Thomas

"Absolutely loved it, as always. My baby dog showed some amazing stuff on courses that I wish he could be doing now every weekend! It's highlighted our training need whilst realising his strengths. Very excited to challenge myself to achieve next year. "
