My name is Karel Havlíček, I am 49 years old, and I live with my family and 5 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 the 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 became National judge at 2018 and International judge at 2019.
As a referee, I had the opportunity to judge, among other things, the qualification competitions for WAO 2020 and for Czech Championship 2020 and 2021, Czech
Championship 2020, 2022 and 2023, as well as Czech Juniors Championship 2020 and 2021 and Moravia Open 2021, 2023 I gained foreign experience in Slovakia, Germany, Finland, Greece, Poland, Austria, Estonia, Netherlands, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark, France, Belgium, Italy and Norway.
It was a honor to judge the FCI AWC 2023 in the Czech republic and it will be honor to judge the FCI JOAWC 2024 in Belgium.
