Loki, a Hungarian Vizsla and owner Tracy Hunt from Shirley,
Southampton won the Kennel Club Large Novice ABC (Anything But
Collies) Agility competition after battling it out against nine
other finalists at Crufts, the world's greatest dog show, on Friday
The competition returned to Crufts for the fourth time this year
and the final saw large dogs in Grades 1-5 of agility, other than
Border Collies and Working Sheepdogs, competing to win. All of the
finalists competing had qualified at the semi-finals at Eukanuba
Discover Dogs in October 2015.
Proud owner Tracey said: "It feels fantastic to win, I'm really
happy. We decided to take it slow and steady and hoped that we'd
get two clear rounds, which we managed to do so that worked well.
It's always fun being here and this year is no different."
Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: "The ABC Agility
competition is a wonderful event, and it's so fantastic seeing all
the different breeds of dog competing in agility. It is such a
great sport, for both the dog and the owner.
"Loki and Tracy's performance at Crufts was brilliant and they
worked very well as a team, which is crucial when competing in
agility at Crufts. We would like to congratulate them on their
