Lancashire Heelers and Agility
Sue Keen has actually done what many of us think and talk about doing and never get around to - agility with her Lancashire Heeler! If you're looking for inspiration loook no further. We all know how quick, agile and intelligent the Lancashire Heeler is but these action shots show what happens when it comes together with discipline and practice.
Hogan the Lancashire Heeler Does Agility!
I started training Hogan (Lancamb Secret Xander) for agility when he reached 12 months old. He took to it very quickly, often being referred to as 'teacher's pet' in our class!
We had to wait until he was 18 months old to compete, our club show was scheduled for a couple of weeks after this so off we went.
Hogan is not a heeler that likes the rain, and typically it poured all day, so with very low expectations we set off around the course just hoping to finish in one piece. Not only did we finish but we got a clear round and a huge cheer from our club members watching!
We have been to two more shows since then and came home with another two clear round rosettes, so hopefully we have a promising future ahead!
