Tanya Cooper with Licosateria Taxi in Motion (Taxi) represented England in WAO last month in the Netherlands.

Julia Carr with Riwalee Dark Knight AW(S) qualified to run in his first Championship Final at RVA. It was only his third time in championship, and their first ever final of any description, she was so incredibly proud of him. He is Julia's first agility dog so has come a long way from G1 together. He had anxiety issues and Julia had no idea how he would cope with all the people watching (or how she would) but he actually went up a gear. It was such a great experience for them. 

Also Julia with Lowick Black Angus Of Milesend (Angus) who is G6 had a lovely run in the International Tour Agility at RVA and placed 4th. It was a challenging course and he did so well.
