PRLog - Sep. 18, 2012 - Professional dog trainer Ami said “I’m so proud of Kiri for reaching the final! We were at the Kennel Club International Agility Festival at Market Harborough and saw that there was a heat for Scruffts taking place. I entered Kiri as a “spur of the moment” thing as there is no need to register in advance – and she won the heat! Now she progresses to the Grand Final in November!”

The final of Scruffts is to be held at Discover Dogs, which will be at Earl’s Court 1 on 10th and 11th November. Discover Dogs originally launched Scruffts in 2000 and as its website states, whilst Scruffts is a fun competition, judges will also be checking that the dogs have the following qualities:
• Good character
• Good health
• Good temperament with people and other dogs
Kiri herself is taking all the fuss in her stride! She is used to be “under the spotlight” as she does very well at agility competitions, where she competes regularly, under the watchful eye of owner Ami (who is a grade 7 handler - the highest grade achievable in Agility).
As Ami says “At Cheshire Dog School the focal point of our training regime is on helping owners to build a wonderful bond with their dog. We teach using modern, positive training methods with the emphasis on reward not punishment. We also teach agility which is so much fun for both dog and owner.
Kiri is very much the kind of dog that many owners hope their own family pet will grow into, so getting through to the Grand Final of Scruffts is as much a reward for her as it is a pleasure for us all at Cheshire Dog School”.
The winner of Scruffts is named "The Kennel Club’s Family Crossbreed of the Year" and all the clients of Cheshire Dog School are very much hoping it will be Kiri.
