The 2nd Annual Califia Open Agility Cup

June 15th-16th, 2019 :: Escondido, California

The Premium is now live!




Can't travel to Europe but want to try your hand at FCI-level courses? Here is your chance! This event will cater to teams who want to stretch outside of their comfort zone and test their agility chops, as well as play to win!

We will be fostering a competitive atmosphere by scoring using time-plus-faults. Runs will be cumulative, with a finals round for top seeds, to encourage a "lay it on the line" mentality.

Winners and placements will receive not just rosettes and cool loot, but bragging rights! Finals Cup winners in each height will win CASH prizes in addition to lots of other amazing bling!

Teams should be prepared to tackle FCI-style courses specifically designed for this event. Judge of record to be determined.

This Cup event is open to all teams with dogs 18 months of age and older, regardless of current title status or venue affiliation.



Outdoors on grass in North County San Diego, this event will showcase "international style" courses and follow in the footsteps of how competitions are commonly run in Europe. We will encourage teams to push for the limits and showcase their speed and advanced skills!

Building a sense of community and creating a great event is also a key initiative of the Califia Cup. The agility community is vibrant and diverse, we want to host an event that all dog sport lovers can enjoy, regardless of whether or not they are competing.

There will be multiple cumulative rounds plus a finals run. Scoring will be time plus faults. First rounds will include jumping, hybrid and agility. Finals run will be an agility course.

Jump heights will follow AKC regulations. You may run your dog at whatever their current "competitive height" is. More details in the premium.

European-style "fix and finish" training in the ring will be allowed, but this is a competitive event, not a fun run. No toys or treats will be allowed in the ring.

What did people say about the inaugural 2018 Califia Cup??

Loved the courses, the laid-back atmosphere (although competitive), fun event!

Fun, well designed, flowy courses. Great lunch.

Awesome prizes. Great judge. Time + faults = :)

It was one of the most enjoyable times I’ve had in agility ever!!!

I enjoyed the challenging courses, laid back atmosphere, comradery among attendees/competitors.

No pressure, just fun and very well organized and didn’t go too late. Oh, and we ALL got lunch and loved the fun raffles and vendors. Win-win all around.

Loved the courses, the overall atmosphere of having fun and running fast, the time plus faults scoring, the importance of safety for our dogs, the option to train in the ring.

I would say I am a fair to medium-skilled handler and the courses were challenging but I really enjoyed them and NO ONE made me feel like I should not be there. Everyone was very supportive and helpful!

It was a blast! All your hard work gave everyone a special day of competition. Thank YOU. I will try and attend next year too if my dogs are up to it. I heard nothing but good comments all day long.

Thank you for holding this event! So much fun!! Love the opportunity to run on international style courses. Love the challenges and seeing what my dog can do.

I think it made for healthier competition that everyone was able to eat lunch together. The vendors and gift bags gave it a party celebration atmosphere. I felt included, even as a more novice competitor.

Thank you! This was an amazing event. :D

70% said they would be extremely likely to return to the Cup next year.
