Three dogs and their owners from Dorset have qualified for the prestigious Kennel Club Olympia Agility Stakes finals in London.
Jo Tristram, aged 31, from Blandford qualified in two competitions, large and novice.
She qualified with Bitz, a crossbreed in the large category and Tuesday, a Border Collie in the novice category.
Helen Davey-Smith from Witchampton qualified in the large competition with her Border Collie, Nellie-Bean and Amy Lawson from Shaftesbury qualified with her Shetland Sheepdog in the small competition.
The country’s most talented agility dogs and handlers have been competing in qualifying heats at agility shows across the country to get a place in the finals from December 18-22 as part of the London International Horse Show.
Jo said: “I’m thrilled to have both dogs competing. I hope my young dog Tuesday loves the buzz as much as Bitz does! This is Bitz’s fifth time.”
Helen commented: “Qualifying for Olympia is very exciting for any agility handler so we are really looking forward to it.”
