UpAndOver Dog Agility Club came into existence on 1 September 2013 but remains very much the same club as it was, under the charge of Mark and Karen Laker, as UpAndOver Agility Dogs.
Jenn is not currently running her Wag & Tone classes during the summer 2015.
Keesie is a Korthals Griffon, a breed established by Edward Korthals to be a versatile gun dog; one with extreme resiliency, vigor, and devotion to its master. They are more common in Holland, France and Germany. (Photograph courtesy of Tony Game at www.oscarhobbes-dogphotography.co.uk)
After initial puppy obedience, Keesie has been training at Scovellsway Training Kennels run by Annie Buckley, where he has proved to be a very keen hunting dog. His moment of glory was achieving first place in a scurry, retrieving over hay bales in the best time. He tends to do everything fast, so when he’s doing the right thing, it looks really good, but when things go wrong - oh dear!
He seems to be enjoying agility, although he tends to behave more like a puppy than he would in his gun-dog environment.
Editor: Belinda and Keesie are currently training in our Pre-beginners class and are doing very well!
UpAndOver Dog Agility Club member, Victoria Harrild-Jones, and her Miniture American Shepherd, Boomerang, have recently taken part in a photo shoot for 'Dogs Today' magazine's 'Fido Facts' section.
This section is featuring the Miniture American Shepherd in April or May and our Boomer will be the star!
Don't forget to buy your copy of the magazine to read the full article regarding this unusual breed when it is published in April or May!
Thank you Dogs Today for allowing us to preview your pictures.
Victoria and Boomer are members of our Pre-beginners class and both look as if they have a promising agility career ahead of them.
