A talented agility dog from Huntingdon and his owner have qualified for the prestigious Kennel Club Olympia Agility Stakes finals in London later this month.

Adam Stretton qualified in the Anything But Collies competition with his five year-old Pyrenean sheepdog, Jet.

Agility dogs and handlers have been competing in qualifying heats at agility shows across the country in an attempt to gain a place in the finals, which take place from Thursday.

Adam, 15, who is a Young Kennel Club member, represented the club’s British agility team at the European Open Junior Championships in Slovakia, in July, where he and Jet won a bronze medal in the large team overall with his team mates.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club secretary said: “Olympia is a big highlight in the agility calendar. The standards continue to grow and this year is no exception. We are looking forward to watching all those talented dogs and their handlers in action, with such a fantastic atmosphere it’s certainly not one to miss. We would like wish all of the finalists from Cambridgeshire the best of luck and look forward to what is set to be another exciting year for the event.”
