They’ll be at Crufts TWICE in 2020!
This year at the 2019 Discover Dogs (October 12th & 14th), James and Willow competed and won the overall title in the Crufts ABC semi-final.
The final placings are a combination of scores over two rounds: jumping and agility. By placing 2nd in the jumping and 1st in the agility, they took home the overall winner title – and a very nice trophy!
James and Willow also won a “Championship Ticket” earlier this year which means they had already qualified for the prestigious Agility Championship final on the Sunday of Crufts. Now, after their win at Discover Dogs, they will also compete on the Friday in the medium ABC final.
ABC stands for “anything but collies”, as this breed often dominates the sport; this includes any cross-breeds that have a border collie gene.
The 2019 agility season is nearly at a close – but bring on Crufts 2020! We hope to see you all there – any fellow CotswoldRAW lovers do come and say hello!
