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
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."

agility full-time and gives seminars internationally as well as
