During racing we achieved a best time of 19.99 to consolidate our seed time.

Congratulations to the Kidderminster medium agility team who won the Crufts qualifier at Wye Valley, Monmouth today to book their place at Crufts 2015. For once it was not plain sailing as Team Captain Stuart mis-read the running order and did not arrive in time to run!. So Heidi stepped up from reserve with the ever dependable Cody. In the run we performed very well just picking up 5 faults over the 4 dogs. Sadly the timing had failed and meant we had to re-run from scratch. All handlers and dogs once again delivered under pressure to win the class. Congratulations to the following who are Crufts bound in 2015, Heidi & Cody, Sue & Spice, Liz & Kera, and Karen & Willow.

The dogs seemed to be getting their racing legs back after the Winter break and in our 3rd show of the year Kiddy Minsters stormed to a divisional win. The dogs who travelled to Sutton Fields Cheshire were Stan, Marmite, Maddison, Mac and Jodie. They were in control of the division from the off winning the first four matches without losing a leg. During the racing Marmite obtained the BFA Graduate award so congratulations to Laura who has worked hard to get Marmite up to her current level.

Contratulations to the ~Kidderminster Agility team who once again qualified for the grand finals at Crufts today.

Karen Gibbons went on to win the Kennel Club Crufts singles with Willow later in the day after two cracking runs.
