10th March - Natalie Webb and Cass go from strength to strength at Crufts 2014

Natalie Webb is a dog agility competitor sponsored by Autarky (part of the Dodson and Horrell Group). She competes her five dogs at all levels of the sport and has recently represented England in Spain at the World Agility Open.

Natalie’s top dog Quicksilver Shooting Star (Cass) who competes at the highest level, Grade 7 has had recent success at Crufts 2014, finishing second in the Jumping element of the hotly contested Championship competition, taking them through to the final on Sunday 9 March.  Natalie & Cass also competed in the Team Competition the day before where the four members of Corton's Agility Club’s, Chaos Theory finished fifth in the final, a great result all round.  Other members of the team were Amy Lawson & Fudge, Lee Harfield & Pip, and Rosie Cavill & Spice.

Before being able to compete at Crufts Cass & Natalie had to win a challenge certificate, which they have managed to do for the last two years running and it is now their aim to win a third challenge certificate this year for Crufts 2015 and also to qualify for Olympia in December, where they reached the semi finals last year. 

Natalie feeds all of her 5 dogs on Autarky Dog Products.  “Cass is fed on Mature Lite Chicken as she gets fat on fresh air; even though it is a lite product it still gives her all the energy she needs to compete at the top level, whilst preventing her from gaining too much weight.  The other dogs are younger and less greedy and so are all fed on Adult Salmon which gives them boundless energy and makes their coats beautifully glossy”.

The 2014 season starts in earnest in May and we wish them the very best of luck with the new season.
