The British team consisted of Ms Jo Rhodes with her dog Kelbie from Derby, Dr Toni Lock with Whiz from Howwood, Scotland and Ms Nicola Garrett with Spec from the West Midlands.
Said Caroline Kisko, Secretary of the Kennel Club; "We are very excited that the British Dog Agility Team have done so much for Great Britain by winning the World Dog Agility Championship. We have been able to compete in the World Championships for the last three years following Pet Passports and are extremely pleased that Great Britain are now World Champions."
