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.
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!
