4th Height Jumping Cup Rules

4HCupBannerSponsors2016

The 4th Height Jumping Cup is an exciting sponsored event for agility dogs, created to support the introduction of a 4th height at 550mm in KC Agility tests.  This event is open to all dogs measuring over 430mm at the withers (ie over Medium height) and with jump heights set at 550mm.  Entering a heat cannot prevent you from entering ALL the other classes for which your dog is eligible, subject to any restriction the individual show may impose.

The Grand Final will take place on the weekend of 25/26 June, in the main arena at DogFest 2016.  Held in the grounds of Windsor Great Park, DogFest is an outdoor festival which celebrates everything that is special and life changing about owning a dog and is hosted by Channel 4’s Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick.
