Brenda & Heidi at Crufts

Coming Back to Agility
In 1982, Brenda Johnston saw her first Agility competition at Crufts when Agility was in it's infancy and the jumps were all one height! She talked to a few people to get some information and was directed to Val Pollock (now Phillips) who told her that she and her friend Lindsey Parker would be starting an Agility club very soon at Warlingham Rugby Club. Brenda and her six year old Border Collie Heidi were amongst their first members. We hope you enjoy her trip down Memory Lane.
A demo tyre Recollections of a Bygone Age
Agility Avid (nom de plume) has many, many happy memories of her early days of agility when it was a very new hobby dog sport. Equipment, teaching and handling techniques were in their infancy. The majority of dogs were slower in comparison to these days, and injuries were extremely rare. Some said that agility was for 'dogs with no brains', but she and her dogs were having fun. Avid looks back to her early dalliance with the sport.
Talking Heads
You've probably heard stories about the old days of Agility when everything was 'friendlier and more fun.' Here's a selection of voices from the past and present, recalling their own experiences.
