Skiffle, a six year-old Border Collie, and his owner Lucy Creek from Stratford-upon-Avon won the International Heelwork to Music Freestyle Final at Crufts on Saturday 12th March. This win came only two days after the pair won the Heelwork to Music Freestyle competition on Thursday 10th March.

Skiffle only got the all-clear to start training in January after a toe injury caused by a bad jump when trying to catch a ball.

Speaking after their win, Lucy said: "I'm over the moon - Skiffle's worked really hard and I'm really proud of him. We had a bit of a rush to get him ready, but he still won which is beyond incredible!"

2016 was the fifth time the duo have come to Crufts and the second time they have won the Freestyle title.
