Dog agility competitor, Dawn Weaver represented Great Britain at the American Kennel Club's Invitational Weekend this weekend in Orlando, Florida with two of her dogs, Puzzle and Breezer.

Dawn travelled to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida with her Papillon, Ag Ch Tonring Just a Puzzle (Puzzle) and her crossbreed, Ag Ch It's Easy With a Beezy (Breezer).

Dawn was awarded first place in round one with Breezer and third place in round one with Puzzle, and came 27th overall with Breezer in the finals, which took place on December 14th and 15th.

Dawn commented: "Puzzle received top international dog in his group and third best toy overall. Breezer ended up third international dog in her group and top miscellaneous dog in her group awards. They both did really well even though Puzzle unfortunately slipped on the matting and came out of the weaves in round three. I'm very proud of them."

Dawn is hugely successful in the world of agility. She teaches agility full-time and gives seminars internationally as well as achieving major wins competitively. Dawn's accomplishments include winning the prestigious Kennel Club Olympia Stakes four times with her dog, Chelsea and winning the Crufts singles with her dog, Promise.

The dogs she competed with at the AKC Invitational are also highly regarded; Puzzle is the only Papillon ever to have become an Agility Champion in the UK, and Breezer, a Bearded Collie/Collie cross, has won the Crufts Agility Championship.
