Catch me if you can!
A new addition to the prestigious Animaltalk Top Dog Awards this year was an agility category, sponsored by Bravecto South Africa. These super-quick canine achievers were recognised in three categories: small, medium and large.
Stop ticks and fleas in their tracks!
Second place: Large
The winners in this category were Annaret Meintjes and her Border Collie Catch. At just over three years old, Catch boasts an incredible amount of achievements in this sport for dogs. She has achieved Grand Champion status in both contact and non-contact agility, and she is also a champion in dog jumping. She also recently won the Top Grade Agility Points Log in the Western Cape.
In 2014 she went to Luxembourg where she represented South Africa at the Agility World Championships.
She finished 22nd in the Individual Competition – very impressive considering that she was the youngest participant in the Large category at the time! In 2015 Catch went on to win the National Agility League in the Large category. Annaret describes Catch as a tiny Border Collie with a huge heart.
