The Just So Jump & Twist Pairs is a new competition for all heights, Small, Medium and Large and the results will be combined. One dog will complete an Agility course and the other dog a Jumping course. There will be a baton change in the box. The top three pairs from each heat will qualify for the final which will be announced at a later date.

Final  Report

Following ten exciting heats held at shows across various parts of the country, the final of The Just So Jump and Twist pairs took place at Tag Summer Show in Uttoxeter.

It was a beautiful evening and our lovely judge, Alan Mitchell, who also designed our fab logo, set a brilliant course with just the right amount of challenges to make it an exciting final to both run and watch.

The Smalls went first, followed by the one Medium pair. There were a few oohs and aahs a, one by one, they were all faulted except for Selena Bray and Katie Hemming who put in our first double clear.

And so on to the Large. In this height there were at least three husband and wife pairs hoping to prove they had a great partnership in agility, too! Helen and Colin Veal set a great time to beat when they stormed into the lead with foot perfect runs by both dogs and handlers. There were some exciting runs as handlers pushed hard knowing they had to go both clear and fast. There were a few unlucky poles and refusals and then Belinda Zorab and Alison Haigh gave us our third double clear, not quite fast enough to beat the leaders, but putting them into well deserved 2nd place, with Selena and Katie taking 3rd.

The winners this year won a Jewlnick collar for each of their dogs and the top three pairs won a framed picture of their dogs in the final, kindly donated by the super talented Ian Watts. The exciting news for next year is that the winners of the 2015 Final will receive 200, generously donated by Jewlnick.
