Laois Girl And Her Dog Take Bronze In International Agility Competition

They will also compete at Crufts in March.

A Laois girl and her dog have come third in the small dog category at the 2020 Open Junior Agility Championships in England.

15 year old Becky Mullally from Portarlington and her two and a half year old Toy Poodle Georgie represented Ireland competing against 11 other teams in her event.

Agility is a sport where dogs compete against the clock to negotiate obstacles guided by their handlers.  

It tests the dog’s fitness and the handler's ability to train and control the dog off-lead.

The duo are also competing in the world renowned dog show Crufts in early March.
