Let me introduce you our dear friends, international judges, those ones who were brave enough and accepted our invitation.

Alejandro Salas (ES)

“Hi! My name is Alejandro Salas and I’ve been practicing agility for the last 13 years. 
I started with my first adopted dog and by that moment I knew that agility would be my passion.
I am now competing with my Border Collie "Bliss" and starting with my new working cocker too. I've been 6 years in a row as a professional agility trainer and as an international judge for the last two years, enjoying each event, each team and giving the best of me at every run.
As a competitor and also as a judge I really like those courses in which natural and secure lines are present, but at the same time being challenging for the competitors as well as letting them show their handling abilities.
Thanks a lot for this amazing opportunity of judging for the very first time in Czech Republic, at such an incredible event as Prague Agility Party. I feel so happy to share this adventure with you all.”

Angelika Brandl (AT)

“Since I started with agility more than 20 years ago, I have been infected with this special virus, I can't can't imagine a life without agility. I am fascinated by our wonderful sport, with all its rapide development and it is still thrilling for me! With my pumis, I was - and still am -  competing for Austria on international competitions. As a competitor I love to run fluent but challenging courses with my pumis. As a judge, I am engaged to set those challenges for others. To see, teams enjoying running those courses and having some really amazing runs on them brings me still goosebumps! I am looking forward to seeing you all at Prague Agility Party in Summer!”

Anna Schönenberger (CH/CZ)

“Hello, My name is Anna Schönenberger, I’m living nearby the beautiful lake of Konstanz in Switzerland, nearby the border with Germany and Austria.

Since 1995 I’m inexplicable infected with agility virus. In the moment I run my patterdale terriers  Batman (Medium 3), Robin (Medium 2, soon 3). I love what I do and I do what I love – I’m agility trainer and massage healer for dogs.

I really love to judge – this feeling, when someone reads my course in just perfect way for his own dog, choose the best possible line, and perform in breath taking harmony. Waiting for the perfect runs is what makes judging so thrilling for me

In my courses I want teams to display their skills and potential, but have a lot of fun anyways regardless of result. I always try to give the handler and the dog real and fair opportunity to solve situations laid on the course.

Cause I’m by origin Czech , really looking forward to check all the Party on Prague Agility Party 2024, with this awesome location, super judges and a lot of excellent teams all over the Europe.

See you there, and remember : “No risk = no fun, so run run RUN!!!!!!”

Kine Eimhjellen (NO)

“I am an agility lover from Norway. I started my agility career with my Flat-coated Retriever 20 years ago. Now I judge, hold seminars and we have our own amazing agilitycenter in the South-East of Norway.

I am very passionate about dogs feeling of empowerment in the agility course, that the lines makes sense for dogs and that the team get to show the skills that they have trained.

Looking forward to the party in Prague!”

Marc Valk (NL)

“Hi everyone, I'm Marc Valk from the Netherlands.

As I was writing this I came to the conclusion that I've started doing Agility 20 years ago. It doesn't feel that long Thus, I started Agility in 2003. Since then, I've had the honor of representing my country multiple times in the Dutch National team for the European Open and the AWC, with different dogs.

Throughout my agility journey, I have consistently competed alongside Shetland Sheepdogs, affectionately referred to as shelties. Currently, I'm competing in the small class with my 3rd sheltie named Jiro. Additionally, I'm eagerly anticipating a new chapter that hopefully can start this year – a fresh challenge with a different breed, our Border Collie, Icon.

Beyond being an active competitor, I've taken on various roles within this sport that I love. My judging career just started in 2022, and being invited to the Prague Agility Party already is a tremendous honor. Personally, I love designing courses that challenge both the handler's physical abilities and the dog's skills. So I am eager to watch your runs where you and your dogs successfully tackle my courses.

See you soon in Prague!”

Paul Langhans (DE)

“Hello everyone. My name is Paul, I have been actively practicing agility since 2002 and also as a judge since 2014.

When planning my course, I pay particular attention to safety and a good running line. I love challenging courses with a balance of speed and technique. I like it when there are different ways to complete a run so that each team can find the optimal path for themselves.

I want you all to have fun during the runs and I'm looking forward to being part of the PAP 24.“

Petr Pupík (CZ)

“Thank you very much for the opportunity to judge the Prague Agility Party for the second time, I am really happy about that and it is a big pleasure for me to judge besides all the great judges.

First of all I would like to introduce myself. My name is Petr Pupík, I am 38 years old and I live in a small village, Kunice, close to Brno with my wife, son and two Tollers. I started doing agility 15 years ago with my Beagle Tim. Now I have two Tollers, 13 years old Jenny and 6 years old "puppy" Tulla.

I became a judge 10 years ago. I have had the opportunity to judge in 30 countries around the world. As a judge I like designing and building fast fluent courses with technical parts, on which you can see a real connection between handlers and their dogs.

I hope we will enjoy this Party together and all of us will have fun. See you there!”

Petra Vyplelová (CZ)

“Dear agility friends!

My passion for agility started in 2003 with my westie Missy. Since that I was competing with 3 westies and 2 border collies of my own and several dogs of my friends or students. In 2018 I became an agility judge and 2021 I became also an international judge. I am gaining experiences on many competitions in Czech Republic and now also in abroad. I love to watch great runs and performance of every single agility team and I can´t wait to see lots of those runs in Prague  

See you there!”
