From a young child growing up in South Wales, I've always been around dogs, mainly Border Collies & terriers. Since leaving home I've had the pleasure of owning 3 Border Collies, 1 Welsh Sheepdog and 2 Golden Retrievers.
I'd always wanted to compete at dog agility from a young age and as soon as work commitments allowed I followed my ambition and started competing. My agility career didn't really start as planed either! I bought a Welsh Sheepdog (Teagan) specifically as my first agility dog, but during her puppy class I was talked into running our 12 month old Golden Retriever (Marley), who I took to my first agility competition in 2012.
I currently run 3 dogs competitively:
My Welsh Sheepdog Teagan is now 8 and is my current main competition dog, we have reached KC grade 6 and UKA Senior level. Recently at the Southam competition ( September 2019) Teagan managed a wonderful clear round at grade 6 (FH) which means we need just one more Agility win for our Grade 7 fingers crossed. I'm also looking forward to November where we've qualified for the Animal Health Classic Final.
Chase is my Border Collie who is 6, he is a rescue and was due to be destroyed as he was surplus to requirements on the farm where he was born. He is a cracking dog with a mind of his own; he's super-fast and I've needed to learn a completely different handling system to run him. He's currently KC Grade 4 and this year (2019) we've qualified for two finals to be run at the end of the year.
My young Golden Retriever Woody 2, is in his first year of competing and is proving a joy and showing great potential. Again at Southam, he managed two lovely clear rounds first was competing against grades 1 - 7 (combined 1-7 (LHO)) and he came 37th out of 129 and secondly in a Jumping Combined 1-4 (LHO) he finished 3rd out of 85.
My beautiful Marley who is now 9 retired in January 2019 having achieved KC Grade 5 & UKA Champion level.
I am currently studying for Kennel Club Accreditation as an Agility Instructor.
