From Pat Wallis (Feb 2017)

I’m really looking forward to the new agility season starting.  

 
Bubble starts the season in Grade 7.  We’ve enjoyed some brilliant training over the winter.  Championship classes here we come.     
     

 

Binka too is set to for her debut in the agility ring.  2017 is certainly going to be great fun.

     
     
Update from Nina (March 20th)
Following on from Wispa's achievement in passing his gold citizen award after three lessons, his kennel mate Robbie also won the gold award, thus joining Nina's other dogs. He achieved this after only having one lesson. His training put on hold when Nina was hospitalised following eye surgery.

From Phyllis Archer (November 2014)

     

Rags (Yewdale Lucky Charm) is 11, he reached grade 6 but these days unless he is in a team or pairs he runs in Any Size or Veteran classes where he can jump over a lower height than he used to.
He has had a 1st and 4th in Anysize Agility, a 1st in the De-Photo team competition and a 4th in the Chatsworth pairs.

Dart

Dart (Dunbrae Royal Emblem) is 6 he is in grade 4. Unfortunately in January this year he jumped off an armchair and dislocated his shoulder. He started to compete again in August and since then he has done quite well having had four 1st and three 2nd places.

     
     
     
     
   
     
     

From Pat Wallis (October 2014)

     

Pat and her shelties have had another good year in the agility ring. Cali (Ramtin Rioutous) returned to the ring after a year off due to having his digital flexor tender repaired. Pat decided that he would only compete in jumping classes for a while until he was fully fit. Even so he managed a number of places including a 1st and 2nd in Grade 5-7 agility.

BUBBLE
     

Pat was really looking forward to competing with Bubble (Peartbrook Out of the Blue) and was not disappointed. He started the year well at his very first show he made a number of baby mistakes but did manage a scrappy clear. Two weeks later he was in the ring again and won his first jumping class. He continued the rest of the season running his little heart out.

Oh how he loves his agility.


Between April and July he won ten 1st places and three 2nd places taking him from Grade 3 to Grade 5 in just a few months.

     
 
 

Pat is also rightly proud of her older boy,  Bry (Felthorn Flashback), who still likes to show Cali & Bubble that he is clever too.  In between competing at Darlington Championship breed show  this year he took time out to  gained his Gold Citizen Award.
