Lowestoft Dog Agility Display Team
- Britain’s most popular dog display team!
- Book early to avoid disapointment
- County shows - carnivals - fêtes
- Car & steam rallies - fun days
- Private or corporate functions
- The team has public liability insurance
We are fortunate in being invited to a number of great events year-on-year, such as Lowestoft Carnival, Woolpit Steam and Grand Henham Steam Rally, along with more and more new and exciting events. We may be booked, subject to availability and within about a two hour drive of Lowestoft, throughout the summer, usually for weekends and bank holidays, but we may also be able to attend occasional weekday (or evening) events.
We have a variety of dogs in our team, pedigrees, crossbreeds and mongrels, including several rescued dogs. All have done at least a degree of obedience training (some having reached a high standard - at least at club level) as well as agility and specialised training for individual or group elements. Most of the team dogs are Kennel Club Good Citizens!
Our display routine, of about half an hour's duration, consists of a series of team, group and individual items all of which are fun for the dogs, handlers and, judging by the reactions that we get, the audiences of all ages!
This usually includes races over a series ofjumps, flyball, tunnels, weaving poles,
retrieves, novelty items and...........the spectacular fie jumps!
We normally expect to have at least eight dogs and handlers - sometimes even up to 14! The actual numbers participating at any particular event will depend on availability on the day. Even with fewer members attending we will still provide an entertaining programme of agility, fun and obedience.
We provide a lively and entertaining commentary with our displays and can supply our own
portable PA system if required. If your event has PA covering the venue it would be preferable for
us to use that. If there is a radio microphone (or a fixed mike at a suitable vantage point – our
commentator needs to see the whole arena) so much the better. We also request that, as much as
is possible, any other noises, such as loud music or sudden sharp noises, be constrained for the
duration of the display(s).
Insurance & Safety
The team has public liability insurance, a copy of which along with our Risk Assessment will be
available for event organisers. Copies of these documents will always accompany the equipment
trailer. The team will have with them at events both First Aid and Hygiene Kits as well as Fire
Extinguishers (Water type) and additional water in containers for the prevention of fire spreading to
grass from fire jumps. All of the team handlers carry “poo bags” to clean up should there be any

Hope to see you again next year. We so much enjoyed your display this year we would love to invite you again! Our Fete next year will be on Saturday 3rd July, please can we book you? We certainly had a lot of good reports from last year and everyone enjoyed the show. After your very successful appearance at this year's rally we would like to invite your team back again next year. We had a great time watching the display you must all work very hard to get to this standard. The public and all competitors so enjoy your displays and all are impressed at the standard of training to get your dogs to complete all their events. Doubtless one of our 'star turns' last year, and I know you will be again this year. You supplied us last year with a very entertaining and much liked show, we are in the process of organising the date of our village fete for this year, and would like you to attend again. Just a quick e-mail to let you know that you will be performing at 2pm on Saturday. We are all really looking forward to seeing the show. My team was impressed by your shows and yes we'd love to be able to work with you again given the opportunity. Thought your show at Stowmarket Carnival yesterday was great. We also watched the displays e.g., The Lowestoft Dog Agility these were brilliant! Thank you for putting on such a good display. It was really enjoyable. The comments from the public were extremely positive. Many thanks for a very successful contribution everyone I spoke to loved "the dogs" I and the Rally Committee would be delighted for you to join us again on both days of next year's Rally. We are looking forward to seeing you again at Norfolk in August.Well done over the weekend and what a fantastic display you put on. Congratulations on a great display today in Kessingland!
