Hannah, Year 11, and her border collie/miniature poodle, Izzie, have, following two very intensive selection days at Nottingham Trent University, been selected to represent the Young Kennel Club (YKC) Agility, Team GB at the European Open Junior Agility Championships in Luxembourg in July 2017.
For Hannah, this is the highlight of a successful first season competing in agility, in which she and Izzie also achieved Grade 7 (the highest grade possible) at the Kennel CIub International Festival in August 2016 (attended by 1000’s of handlers from across the world).
Hannah and Izzie have also qualified for numerous events and finals, including performing at the National Pet Show, reaching the final of the British Agility Championships, being a member on the winning team of the TAG Team Dash final, reaching the Junior Agility Club finals in July 2016 and running in their first Championship competition. They also qualified for and competed in the YKC Agility Dog of the Year semi-final and Jumping Dog of the Year final at Crufts 2017 and achieved 5th place in the Agility Dog of the Year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h0gNhog51g.
