Judges - 2021


Andrew Dicker - England


My name is Andrew Dicker and I live in Reading, Berkshire with my wife Carol and our six dogs.
We first met about 23 years ago whilst competing at obedience competitions. It was about a year or so after that that she introduced me to the “dark side” and I have been enjoying competing and judging all around the world at agility ever since!
I have just one competitive dog at the moment, Joker who competes at Grade 7 (Champ).
In the past (with Tag) I have Won Crufts Team 2012, 2nd in 2010 and 2013 and Competed at Crufts 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015! Joker and I qualified for Olympia Semi-finals 2015
I have been exceptionally privileged to have judged in Jersey, Norway, Italy, Holland, Spain, USA, Dubai, Singapore and in the UK as well! I am a UK Kennel Club Championship judge, an FCI international judge and American Kennel Club (AKC) Excellent/Masters judge.
I was very honoured to be given the appointment of judging the first ever Westminster Agility Challenge at the famous Westminster Show in New York in 2014 subsequently I have also judged the AKC Invitational in Orlando in 2016.
In addition, I have Judged YKC (Young Kennel Club) Agility at Crufts 2011 and just recently was the Agility Judge at the Discover Dogs event held at the ExCel in London in 2017
I would like to thank Sally and André for inviting me to judge once again at the Jersey European Agility Festival. I love the relaxed and friendly manner in which the show is organised and the hospitality here is second to none. I always feel like I am coming home!


Corinna Körner - Spain


Hello, I´m Corinna Körner and I live with my husband and our Belgian Sheperd Stella Maris, in Barcelona (Spain).  I always had dogs in my life, my first two Agility dogs were Aiko and Kelly, both rescued Belgian Shepherd Groenendaels. With Kelly I trained her successfully and became Catalan Champions in individual and team of Catalan Agility Federation (FCAG). Further we were running Cani X and became Catalan Champion, took part in many international competitions including reaching finals at the European Opens. At present I compete with my 4 year old Groenendael Stella Maris.
The passion for this sport made me become a Kennel Club Agility Judge. I like to construct fluid and fast courses with technical parts. A challenge, hopefully for both handlers and dogs.
I want to thank Sally and André, for inviting me to judge. It is a honour and will be a great pleasure to combine again competing and judging at the Jersey European Agility Festival. It is aleady my 6th time taking part in my favourite Agility show; meeting new people and my "amigos".
Looking forward seeing you soon and having a wonderful time.


Barrie James - Wales


My name is Barrie James and I live in Cardiff with my wife Sam and our 4 dogs. I work as a full time agility trainer and am based in South Wales however I travel throughout the UK and overseas to train, compete and judge. I have been training, competing and judging in agility for over 25 years and have been lucky enough to have had success at Crufts, Olympia and the World Agility Open. I have previously managed Team Wales for 3 years at the WAO and each year we have medalled, in addition I have also coached numerous Team GB members for EO and AWC. As an agility enthusiast (AKA Barrie Britainia), I take an active part in supporting GB Agility and am proud to attend major world class events and celebrate success.

Jane James - England


I live on the outskirts of Oxfordshire with my husband, three children and sixteen dogs. I started in the world of agility about 30 years ago with my very successful border collie Nicki. She qualified for every final going including Olympia, Crufts, Barbour Clockwatcher, Barbour Pairs, Pedigree Chum Team and Chum Pairs.
When my children, Katy, Molly and Owen started competing with their own dogs I took a back seat at competing and did more judging appointments.
I was first asked to judge in Jersey at the European Agility Festival in year 2000 when it was held at the Beuvelande Camp site and feel very honoured to have been asked again.
I am really looking forward to judging at this International show and would like to thank André and Sally Rees for inviting me.
Jersey is one of my favourite places to judge as it gives me an opportunity to see all my friends again.
Everyone is so warm and welcoming, it’s like home from home!
