Western Mail Welsh Agility Handler of the Year 2008

James and Griff won the Western Mail Welsh Agility Handler of the Year 2008 at Pembrokeshire Agricultural on 19th August 2008.

The competition is decided over two classes. Griff came 2nd in the jumping round and then had a fantastic 1st in the agility round to win the overall title by just under a second.

Watch out for K9 Capers in 2009!

Great news regarding K9 Capers dog sports displays ….. they are booked for 75 days next year showing off the dogs' agility, flyball, disc catching, sledding and herding skills. A stage performance is also part of the act!

How it all began…

Vicky got involved in agility about 10 years agowith herfirst dog Kip who is now 12 years old. She had always wanted to have a go having watched it on TV on Crufts and Olympia as a child!

James has been competing in agility for about 5 years now - he came to the sport desperate to find an outlet for his exuberant Aussie's excess energy!

Current dogs

Ten: 2 rescued cross breeds aged 11 and 12, 3 Parson Russell Terriers aged 18mts, 4 and 7, one Australian Shepherd aged 6 and 2 WSD one 3 years old and a 6mth pup re-homed from the Dog's Trust.

Proudest moments?

Vicky's proudest moment:

Winning the Welsh Agility Handler of the Year title in 2003 with her then 2 year old Parson Russell Terrier, Fraggle. She was reserve again with Fraggle the next year and then won the title again in 2005 with Kip, which at the age of 9 was a nice swansong to his career. She was also a proud member of the victorious Welsh 4 Nations Agility Team at the International Sheepdog Trials in 2004, has qualified for Crufts twice and was runner up in the Adams Novice Derby with Griff, James's then 2 year old sheepdog.

James’ proudest moment:

Qualifying his Aussie, Sam (also a member of the victorious 4 Nations side) for the ABC finals at Olympia in 2007. Sam has also proved a star in the new canine sport of Cani-X winning at his first ever race with James in 2006.James hasbrought his young sheepdog, Griff, through the Grades from 1 - 7 before his 3rd birthday and is now competing at Championship level with him.

Emma Sunderland (and Kes and Pep)

You may remember earlier this year you provided me with some advice regarding my agility dog. I asked about adding that little bit of extra stamina and you advised adding some CP Xtra. I have been trying this over the months since and I do feel it has made an improvement. I wouldn't say it is a dramatic change but I feel happier knowing I am giving him that bit more energy.

We have also changed one of our working collies on the farm onto CP24 and Xtra. He is the litter brother to my collie and we felt he was needing more energy and stamina for working. He has never been a speedy eater, he used to graze when he felt like eating. However, since changing to CSJ he has dramatically changed his appetite - he now sits and waits for his food and eats it all in one go rather than grazing. We feel he has better stamina and keeps his weight up better (he used to yo-yo a lot and go quite thin at times on other food).

So basically, an all-round thumbs-up for CSJ!! The dogs obviously like it and I feel better knowing I am giving a good quality food with good meat content and no crappy ingredients!!
