Family team achieve Kennel Club status
A KENN-BASED dog agility club has become the first in the UK to achieve listed status with the Kennel Club.
Father and daughter, Mike and Claire Bacon of Kenn Road, are now able to hold licensed Kennel Club agility shows as part of the new initiative.
Their organisation, called Clevedon Agility Show Society, will put on its first event under the status at the Hand Equestrian Centre in Davis Lane on March 16 for large dogs.
Mike, aged 60, and 24-year-old Claire have more than 45 years of combined experience working as dog training instructors and within the agility world.
Mike, who started Diamond Dog Training with his wife Glenda in 2003, said: “We are very excited about being the first listed-status society for agility shows.

“It will allow us to run limited and open shows under the Kennel Club umbrella but not have the full committee of a registered club, which means we can make quick decisions and organise shows in a short timeframe.”
