A CASTLE Bromwich dog and her owner have secured a spot to compete at Crufts 2024.
Border Collie, Roari and her owner Bernie Jobbins took first place in the Intermediate Kennel Club Novice Cup Semi-Finals at the Kennel Club International Agility Festival to earn themselves a spot at the prestigious dog show held at the NEC.
Bernie, who has been competing in agility for 13 years, said: “I am so proud of Roari! She is an absolute superstar and my dream dog.
“She is so clever and always gives it all that she has which is 110 per cent.
“She is the easiest pet to live with and is special in every way.”
The action-packed four-day festival, which welcomed dogs of every size, shape and breed saw skilled competitors from all over the UK navigate the tricky jumps, weaves and tunnels.
Catherine Guiver, head of events at The Kennel Club, said: “Congratulations to all the winners at this year’s International Agility Festival.
“We look forward to seeing winners of the Novice Cup Semi-Finals return to compete at Crufts next year.
“And well done to all the dogs and handlers that have competed and shown great skill and confidence in the rings.”
