INTERNATIONAL ALL BREEDS CUP is a new type of international competition which gives the opportunity to a wide range of breeds to show the beauty and variety of agility.

The idea of the INTERNATIONAL ALL BREEDS CUP arose from the initial idea of agility being a sport for all breeds. This is a great advantage of the sport which allows different people to do agility and compete with dogs of various breeds all around the world.

INTERNATIONAL ALL BREEDS CUP consists of individual, pair, team and nations trials.
Dogs compete for their breed according to the FCI breeds nomenclature. Colours are not differentiated. The competitor must include the name of the breed and the FCI pedigree number in the entry form.

The handler represents the country which has issued the dog's workbook.

I. Individual Breed Trials

Dogs with or without a pedigree may compete in the Individual Trials. All dogs without a pedigree are classified as "mixed breed". The different varieties of Belgian Shepherds are counted as separate breeds.

The combined results of the Individual Jumping and the Individual Agility runs determine which dogs advance to the Individual Finals. A disqualification in either of these runs means that the team cannot advance.

The number of dogs in each breed and height category that can advance to the finals depends on the number of competitors in that breed and height category.

1 - 3 competitors: one dog will advance to the finals
4 - 6 competitors: two dogs will advance to the finals
more than 6 competitors: three dogs will advance to the finals

II. Pair Trials

A pair consists of two dogs of the same breed. All dogs without a pedigree are classified as “mixed breed” and may be paired with each other. In case of a pair composed of two dogs competing in different height categories, the pair is classified in the higher category. Pairs can be entered or changed on site, at registration.

A pair may consist of one handler with two dogs of the same breed. However, if such a pair advances to the finals, the handler must be able to compete in the final run in the form of a relay, that is, the handler must be able to run two courses with two dogs in quick succession. For each pair, the result of the better competitor in the Pair Agility Trial is added to the result of the better competitor in Pair Jumping Trial to determine the pair’s combined score. The two best pairs in each breed advance to the finals, regardless of the number of pairs of that breed competing in the trials. If both members of a pair disqualify in one of the two trials, the pair fails to advance to the finals.

III. Team Trials

A team consists of three or four dogs of any breed and any height category, representing the same country. Their handlers must also all be from that country. Several dogs in a team may compete with the same handler.

To determine the team score, the results of each team’s three best dogs in the Team Agility Trial are added to the results of that team’s three best dogs in the Team Jumping Trial. The first of these team trials is run in a random order by height categories, while the second is run in reverse order of the team results of the first team trial, beginning with the team in last place after that trial. The organiser decides in what order competitors should run within the team.

The team cannot consist of dogs of one breed. In case of injury or the absence of a member of the team, the team can be changed at initial registration.

IV. Nations Trials

The results of the Individual Breed Jumping and Individual Breed Agility are counted. For each country, the three best dogs in each height category advance to the finals of nations. If there are not enough dogs in some height categories, dogs from other categories may be used to fill out the team by adding dogs from the Small category first, then from Medium, and finally from Large. Only dogs without disqualification in either of the qualifying runs may be added. The maximum number of participants from each country is 9.

V. Finals

Breeds:          agility course; the winner is selected according to number of points and time

Pairs:             two courses (Agility and Jumping with a maximum of 12 obstacles in each) set up in one ring on the sameset of obstacles. The pair runs the courses in the form of a relay, judged by 2 judges. The relay baton is determined before the run. The total time score and penalty points for each pair are counted to select the winners. If any of the two dogs is disqualified, the whole pair is disqualified.

Teams:           no final run                                                                                          
 The winning teams are determined from the results of the3 best results of the team of the Friday Team Agility and Saturday Team Jumping.

Nations:         Jumping course                                                                                     
The time score and penalty points of all the competitors in the final run are counted as usual to determine placements in each height category. Points are awarded according to the following table:

1. place


2. place


3. place


4. place


5. place


6. place


7. place


8. place


9. place


10. place


The placement points (not the penalty points and time) of the dogs representing each country are added together from all the categories SA/MA/LA to determine that country’s score, and the winner is the country with the highest score. In case of a tie, the country with fewer penalty points wins. If this still does not resolve the tie, the country with a lower time score wins.
