Otis, a four year old Miniature Poodle and owner David Wright from Odell, Bedfordshire have won one of the country’s most prestigious dog agility competitions after battling it out in the Kennel Club Singles Agility final for small dogs at Crufts, the world’s greatest dog show.
David and Otis won in the small dog category after competing against nine other finalists at Crufts in both jumping and agility.
David and Otis are no stranger to winning as the pair also won both the Small Agility Stakes final at the Kennel Club Olympia Agility Stakes at Olympia in December last year.
Proud owner David said: “I’ve been watching Crufts for as long as I can remember and to get to compete there was incredible. I won at Crufts last year for the first time and to win this year so quickly after winning at Olympia in December was a dream come true. “
Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “The agility finals at Crufts are probably one of the most keenly fought for and most prestigious agility finals in the UK. Just to qualify for a Crufts final is a wonderful achievement.
“We would like to congratulate Otis and David He is such a lovely dog that clearly loves competing and has a great relationship with his handler.”
Crufts took place from 7 - 10 March 2013 at the NEC, Birmingham. For more information visit www.crufts.org.uk.
