The WAO provides competitors with:
In the spirit of our goal to provide the ultimate in dog agility competition, the Individual winners from the prior year’s FCI Agility World Championships, European Open, FCI Agility Championship of the Américas y el Caribe, the All-Around winners from the prior year’s IFCS Agility Championships, and the three medal winners in each height division from the prior year’s World Agility Open Biathlon, Individual Pentathlon and Games are automatically eligible for entry to the WAO regardless of whether their country submits an entry.
Held for the first time in 2011, the WAO is the first international agility event created and managed by agility competitors. It is not run under the auspices of any agility organisation. Without the encumbrance or politics of a large organisation where agility is not the only concern, the WAO organising committee can make decisions quickly and in the best interest of the event and the competitors. We welcome feedback from all participants so that the event can continue to evolve.The official language of the WAO is English.
