Crufts victor Megan puts on a show

A NORTH Northumberland teenager who came out on top in this year’s Crufts will appear at the Fenton Clydesdale Horse Show with her border collie.

Megan Young and Shadow, winners of the Young Kennel Club Agility dog of the Year award, have confirmed that they will appear at the show in Wooler on Sunday, May 1.

Megan, pictured, from Milfield, began training dogs at a young age and has been competing in dog agility with Shadow for three years.

During this time she became ill and had to undergo three emergency operations. Despite this she has gone on to gain various achievements.

As well as the Crufts victory, she also holds the Scottish Junior Dog Agility Dog of the Year title, has helped break a Guinness World Record for the longest human dog tunnel and runs her own agility training classes.

Fred Welham, of the Yorkshire Working Trials Society and The Kennel Club, who built and pioneered the first ever agility course for dogs, said: “I am so pleased and excited that we have upcoming stars like Megan to keep the agility event current and alive.”

Gates for the show open at 10am with judging for the horses starting at 11am prompt There will also be a food and craft fair, fun fair and face-painting.

Tickets are £7 adults, £4 children/OAPs and £15 for a family pass.
