Life Goes On


At the 2014 AKC National Agility Championships in Pennsylvania on 27-30 March, the almost 9 year old Cardigan Corgi Porter (Raconteur Porteur du Jaune) handled by Merinda Tiffany of Lexington, KY became the first 4" Preferred National Agility Champion (PNAC) since the American Kennel Club started offering preferred level classes in 2010. These classes allow a dog to jump one jump height lower than measured and gives another 5 seconds added onto the Standard Course Time of the time of their original height.

09.03.2014 - Corgis Win First Ever 'Obreedience' Display Competition At Crufts

A team of four Welsh Pembroke Corgis has won the first ever 'Obreedience' competition at Crufts, beating eight other breed teams to prove their worth as the most obedient breed in a fun competition at the world's biggest dog event.
Obreedience, the new and exciting team obedience competition, was introduced at Crufts this year as a special display event, and fans of each of the nine breeds - Hovawarts, Spanish Water Dogs, Tibetan Terriers, Rottweilers, Papillons, Afghan Hounds, Corgis, Boxers and Staffordshire Bull Terriers - watched in their droves as the Welsh Pembroke Corgis achieved their victory.
The winning team members were:
* Maria Carter and her dog Carina, from Cheltenham
* Jan West and her dog Rhoda, from Gloucester
* Emese Kovacs and her dog Badger, from Wadhurst
* Sally Corbet and her dog Charlie, from Tewksbury
