....... and about Nick and his dogs:-
Nick is an Agility Club Approved Instructor (ACAI) and has been instructing for over 10 years. He first started instructing with Fracas and then became an instructor for Aylesbury CTS and has been instructing for A to Zooom since the club started in 2008.
Nick has two dogs: Parker, a 10 year old Border Collie x Border Terrier who he inherited at 9 months old, and Bruce, a 6 year old Australian Working Kelpie who he has had since a pup. Sadly Nick lost his other dog, Harvey, in May 2011 at the age of 11 ½ years. Harvey was a chocolate Labrador (litter brother to Ann's Fitz) and was responsible for introducing Nick to agility.
Harvey managed to collect a truckload of clear rounds in his agility career and a number of places and was great fun to run. Parker measured into "medium" and she is now Grade 6. Bruce is at the beginning of his career and had to start out in Grade 3 (courtesy of Parker being in Grade 6) and although he did not do much competition initially he is competing regularly now and has already clocked up a number of top ten places including two second places and a first in agility, taking him in to Grade 4. He won out of Grade 4 in May 2013 but shortly after went lame and has been out of competition since then while Nick works on bringing him back to full fitness.
