News from Sarah Kirkwood

Seeker recently gained his Agility Champion title at only 5 years of age. This is the highest award available in agility in Australia and is something very few dogs achieve. It requires consistent results in the highest level of competition and lots of hard work. He has consistently won and placed in Masters Agility and Masters Jumping classes, allowing him to earn the required points to be classed as an Agility Champion. Thank you to Joint Performance for supporting him from a young age and helping to keep him fit to play the game.
