The World Agility Open Championships are one of the biggest dates in an athletic doggy's diary and takes place this May. The Open will see ultra-talented pooches clear huge jumps, sprint in the speedskates and strut their stuff on stage.
The event will be held in Lignano Sabbiadoro, located in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of north-eastern Italy, and this year, my colleagues and I are really looking forward to meeting the Welsh dog team, who will be travelling to and from the show with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle.
The Welsh Squad is made up of 17 dogs, including dogs that have competed for Wales and Great Britain at European and World Championships, plus 12 handlers. Team Wales have had a number of recent successes and last year came home from a competition in Spain with an Individual Bronze Medal and overall Team Bronze medal.
They will be aiming even higher this year and we'll be rooting for them! The WAO is taking place from 16-18th May. Best of luck to the Welsh team. If you are travelling during that time, keep an eye out for this team of talented pooches.
