My agility journey started 1993with my shelties and I have competed actively with my own dogs since then. Now I have two shelties and one bordercollie at home. I like to take part in different kinds of training sessions and seminars to educate myself both as a judge and as a competitior.

​

When planning courses, I aim for speedy and flowing profile, incorporated with versatile choices and possibilities for handling - courses that also require technical skills and the ability to read the course-plan. Good lines for the dog and smooth to run. 

​

I have been FCI qualified agility-judge since 2008. Although I have judged a lot since then and visit lot of countries, itґs always interesting to visit new countries and see all the competitors running with their dogs. Every competition, every day and run is always a pleasure and privilege to watch. I wish to the participants the best of luck and I hope you will enjoy the courses. Have fun with your dogs.

I became addicted to dogsport in 1994. 

I participated at the FCI Agility World championship and at the FCI European Open. In 2011 I became the head coach of the German National Agility Team. 

​

Agility took over my life and I am still fascinated at this amazing dogsport as a handler, trainer and even as a judge.

​

I have been Lucky enough to judge the German Championship, German Classics, B.A.C.K., WAC tryouts as well as judging in at least 20 different countries. 

​

I am honoured at the opportunity to judge the British Agility Championship. I am looking forward to setting handlers challenging and interesting courses.

Iain Patz - Novice Stakes

I began agility 6 years ago with my border collie called Leo. Since then it has been a none stop journey of fun with all my dogs and the many new friends I have made on the way. I have managed to get 2 dogs from grade 1 to 7 as well as a third dog to grade 7. I have also been very lucky to compete internationally at the IFCS Agility Championships for the last 2 years.

 

I am very lucky to be able to judge agility as well, have judged Cruft Singles Qualifiers, Senior Olympia Qualifiers, Crufts Large teams heat, and OJAC 2018. I am looking to work my way toward Championship Judge Status in the future and feel very honoured to be asked to judge at the British Agility Championships 2019.
