National Leagues FAQ

Our online leagues have been created for you to compete against other dog and handlers teams of a similar type from all around the country. At shows, a Poodle might compete against a Collie for example, but in the online leagues we have separate classifications for different types of dogs so you compete only against similar partnerships.

Yes! We have 31 different leagues to choose from. Some are breed specific such as Spaniels & Poodles, some are for working dogs or non working dogs, others are for tiny or tall dogs and even senior and junior handlers so there’s something for everyone. After the success of the leagues since 2019 we’ve added a few new categories. You can see the full eligibility rules at the bottom of this page.

You can enter up to 5 leagues per year per dog.
Note: Make sure you choose your leagues carefully during sign up as these can’t be changed or added to later in the year.

There are no membership or registration fees to pay, you simply pay per league that you enter. For the 3rd year running each league is just £3 for the entire league season. That’s it!

The league year begins on 1st June and ends on 31st May. This means that all results can be entered from 1st June 2021 into the 2022 leagues. Not sure about old results? Check the back of your award card or rosettes for show info or look through your old Facebook posts/photos if you shared your results with friends. Many shows also put their results sheets online after the event too.

Pretty much all of them! ANY result can be counted from ANY show that was available for all to enter, for classes which were run as an individual. Include: ALL clear rounds, ALL placings (where a rosette or award was presented, whether with faults or clear). Don’t include: Unplaced rounds (if they were clear include as a clear round), online shows, private events or invitational finals. Results count from shows held anywhere in the UK and run under any rule book including UK Hoopers, Hooperholics, Canine Hoopers UK, or any other UK based group. The only exception is that whichever rule book, must not include any type of equipment commonly found in agility, such as upright contacts, weaves or jumps.

Quick Guide:
  • Open to all to enter
  • Run as an individual
  • All placings that received an award
  • Also clear rounds that didn’t receive an award
  • UK Rulebooks using standard hoopers equipment

Unfortunately online contests cannot be included, it isn’t possible to guarantee the integrity of the results from this type of competition. private competitions are also not included, results must be from any show which was widely open to entry. Regular shows with capped entries are accepted.

You can see a list of your dogs results by clicking on the button from within a league table. At present it isn’t possible for you to amend entries so please make sure that you enter them in full and accurately.

Apart from the kudos of winning the National Leagues?? Well, there’s some fantastic prizes up for grabs, as well as some truly regal rosettes and triumphant trophies. PLUS-the top dogs in each league will be invited to the National League Finals for a weekend of hooping fun and presentations.
