My name is Karel Havlíček, I am 47 years old, and I live with my family and 8 Border collies in a small village Králec, Dolní Studénky in the Czech Republic. I was brought to agility in 2008 by my daughter Adele, who went through her beginnings and early successes with our Yorkshire Terrier named Ozzy. Gradually, this innocent activity for my daughter became a passion for whole family.
In 2011 we acquired the first Border collie and one by one others were added, we established a kennel, a training group where we are especially dedicated to preparing the young, we organize competitions within the Czech Republic. Dog care, together with agility is filling all our free time. As part of my agility career, I reached A3 level and after my experience I was captivated by the decision-making of agility.
I had the opportunity to judge the qualification competitions for WAO 2020 and for Czech Championship 2020 and 2021, Czech Championship 2020 and 2022, as well as Czech Juniors Championship 2020 and 2021 and Moravia Open 2021. I judged competitions in Slovakia, Germany, Finland, Greece, Poland, Austria and Estonia.
I look forward to seeing you all in Austria, Germany, Italy, France, Poland, Switzerland, Hungary, Netherland, Denmark, Finland, Spain, Norway, France, Belgium, Sweden, Czech Republic and mainly in Liberec.
It will be an honour to judge at the FCI AWC 2023 in Liberec.
