A BORDER terrier from Bournemouth has won a competition at Crufts.

Bramble, who competed with several young handlers in the annual dog show, took part in the Young Kennel Club’s Agility Dog of the Year competition and in Freestyle to Music.

In the latter competition, Bramble was awarded first place with her handler, 20-year-old Jodie Forbes. It is the third year Bramble has won the class, and this time she performed to Club Tropicana as a tribute to the late George Michael.

In the agility class, she was joined by 15-year-old Madeline.

Although Bramble did not get a clear round, she still put in an “excellent” run, according to Jodie.

“Madeline was extremely proud, especially since it was their first year doing agility. The Agility Dog of the Year competition is open to the top dog handlers in the country who have to qualify at different shows throughout the year to make it to Crufts,” she said.

“Madeline is deaf so Bramble has been trained to help her cross roads and alert her when the phone or doorbell rings so they have a very close bond.”

In addition to her competitions, Bramble and her mum, Hazel, did trick displays and reeled in huge crowds.

The pair have nearly 10,000 Facebook followers and were stopped by people at Crufts who wanted to take a selfie with them.
