The 2018 European Open Junior (EOJ) Agility tournament is scheduled for July 13-15 at the Selevia Hoeve in Werkendam, Netherlands. The EOJ is officially recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI), or World Canine Organization, and participants are required to follow the FCI Agility regulations of 2012. Every year, this exciting event brings together young agility athletes from all over the world. In fact, this year’s competition will feature more than 500 participants from 25+ countries! Participants are welcome to enter any dog in the competition, provided that the dog has a record book issued by a National Member Organization of the FCI or a National Organization with a close relationship to the FCI. The young agility athletes representing the United States in this year’s EOJ form Team USA. And 1TDC™ is proud to be one of Team USA’s sponsors for this year’s event!
