How Dave got involved in Agility

Rusty was his first ever dog, and Dave was taking her swimming at his vets when a nurse suggested that he should try some Agility.

He was given the number for Lin at Sunniday Agility and he and Rusty never looked back.

When Dave first entered a show he wanted to give Rusty a good chance so gave up football as he loved the adrenaline rush of running Rusty, plus he says, "She’s always been a committed team member, always turned up on time for training and always gives 110%.”

The most memorable success?

Dave says, "With Rusty, there have been soo many, but I guess the biggest success would have been when we got our third championship ticket making Rusty an Agility Champion.”

So many other successes with Rusty

  • Double World Champion at the World Agility Open 2011
  • World Agility Open Team Pentathlon Gold
  • 3rd in the Senior Stakes at Olympia
  • Her epic run off for 1st place in the ABC Stakes at Olympia in 2008
  • Featuring at Olympia over the last 3 years
  • Crufts for the last 5 years in Singles Agility, ABC Agility and also Breed 

Dave doesn’t sell CSJ products but says they often recommend, order, collect and  deliver CSJ food to some people that we train, and adds,
"Since moving Rusty to CSJ her energy and stamina levels are the best they’ve ever been. With her winning all her Championship Tickets making her Agility Champion since switching, combined with a lovely healthy coat I would never feed my little star anything else.”

Kelly Murrell

Thank you so much for all your help and advice for our rescue Lab x Collie Bryn, he is now well on the way to becoming a fit and healthy dog. Your entire service from initial advice emails, free samples to then ordering online and receiving the chosen dog food was seamless – you don’t find many companies nowadays that offer such great service, but CSJ should definitely win an award for theirs!

Now to the products themselves …. Bryn’s first taste was from the samples you kindly sent and he chose the Natural Champ! as his favourite. Now we have a lovely big 15kg bag of it, both him and I are very happy. With other foods we have tried him on he has been fairly picky, with going off one brand entirely. He ABSOLUTELY loves Natural Champ!....he wolfs it down! The bowl is always licked clean and no mere morsels are left what so ever! The value is totally exceptional, looking at what other so-called premium brands charge - its an outrage they get away with it!

What more can I say – great service, fantastic product (with transparency of what ingredients actually goes into it – really important for me, as you are what you eat!), amazing value.

I am recommending your products to everyone I know who has a dog and now I have joined a local agility club I will telling them all too! Well done and I wish you even greater success in the future!
