Agility

The Temelora Trio (by Debbie Goodwin)

Sonny came to me with his sister Sarah when they were just over a year old. Sonny (and I) started Agility in September 2006. Sarah started training in May 2008. Socks came to me in February 2008 and also started training in May. Sonny picked up agility like a duck to water, his owner is still trying…………..!!!! All agility is taught through play and reward. I now only have to say the word AGILITY and I have three mad Papillons at the door. It is great fun and I started to compete in January 2008. We compete in BAA and KC Shows. We also run in a Team for the Derbyshire Dog Agility Club and have qualified to compete with the team at Crufts 2010. I am horribly proud of our achievements to date in such a short space of time, as I also try to compete my horses as well.

I wasn’t convinced that Sarah would be able to do agility because her attitude was different to Sonny. I now have to eat my words. She has come on in leaps and bounds so to speak and is catching up with Sonny. Socks came to me to finish off the family in February 2008. As I’m extremely busy, we made the decision that Joy Hitchcock, a great friend of mine, but also a Grade 7 handler (which means that Socks has to go straight in at Grade 3 level KC), would train and compete him. He took a while to settle in, but has now gained in confidence. I would encourage anyone with a Pap to do agility or obedience. Not only are they good fun and good disciplines to teach, they keep you fit and it strengthens the bond between owner and dog. As you can see from some of the photos they love it too!!!!
