Dovercourt dogs wow crowds at Crufts
3:00pm Saturday 16th March 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A pair of pooches from Dovercourt wowed fans at Crufts when they appeared in a jaw-dropping agility display.
Staffordshire Bull Terriers Tia and Cassie were at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre as part of a 17 dog team.
It was the doggy duo's first Crufts with the East Anglian Staffordshire Bull Terrier Agility Display Team.
Cassie and Tia are trained by owner Dionne Jay and her husband Stuart.
Dionne said: “It’s great to show Staffords off in a positive light, they have such a bad reputation that people don’t expect them to do things like agility.
“Our two Staffords are fantastic family dogs and absolutely love agility.”
