Commenting on the new partnership, Andrew Treleaven, Director of
Gencon, said: "Irene Holbrook, who designed the original Gencon
product, was a very keen and successful agility competitor who
couldn't find a product that matched her needs and so designed her
own. We are delighted that the Gencon Range is still a favoured
product within the world of agility and is now recommended by both
the Guild of Dog Trainers and the RSPCA. By supporting Agility Team
GB, we believe that we can make a positive contribution to the
team's success and also increase our knowledge of the training
equipment requirements of competitors in the sport of agility."
Agility Team GB's top successes include Natasha Wise and her
Border Collie, Dizzy, who have been crowned World Champions three
times and Sian Illingworth with her Border Collie, Maybe, winning
the European Open Championship.
