Doggone big opportunity

Deb Edwards is hoping to have a doggone good time when she and Malley the dog head to the World Agility Championships next month.

Edwards and her four-year-old Jack Russell qualified to attend the global event earlier this year. She will be flying the maple leaf for the Canadian Kennel Club.

“There is about 80 different countries competing in the championship and over 500 dogs,” said Edwards, who made the small dog team with Malley.

Edwards started doing dog agility 20 years ago, but this is her first time at a competition of this size.

Malley is her sixth dog and after training with some of the best dog agility trainers in Canada, Edwards was urged to try out for the national team last May, where she won a spot to go to the Netherlands.

Edwards is also a founding member of the Dogopogo Agility Club in Vernon.
