An introduction to Skeeter

Skeeter is a Bearded Collie X Lurcher. I introduced him to my agility world, which has now become the thing he enjoys most in life. I named him with the kennel club as “Bohemian Spirit”. He was due to start his agility career in March 2020 but because of Covid this was not possible.

During this period I began to realise he needed more stamina. I was introduced to Albion foods which he is now totally fed on.

The difference in his energy levels, stamina and muscle definition is amazing.

As the world normalised somewhat Skeeter started his career in June 2021. Since this time he has been winning consistently and tends to be in the top 10% in all classes with sizes of 100-350 dogs.

He got through to the Pure Agility finals by coming 3rd in a class of 300 at his first agility show.

He came 8th out of 190 in a Crufts qualifying heat.

Skeeter has won 20 x 1st places and 10 x 2nd places and various other placings. These are out of classes of between 40 -140 He has won Top Agility Rescue Dog in the country on points (all breeds, heights and grades).

At this present time he is top of the Agility Rescue League which we hope to retain. After only 4 shows he has gained his Agility Warrant Bronze.

This dog never ceases to amaze me!
