AKC Agility Stars Tori Self and Rev Selected to Compete at the Crufts International Agility Competition

(Thursday, January 19, 2012)

Tori Self and her Border Collie, NAC MACH Sagehill’s Change the World OF “Rev” have been selected to represent the American Kennel Club in the prestigious International Agility Competition during the Crufts Dog Show in Birmingham, England. The pair will compete against 25 teams from countries around the world.

Tori and Rev were selected based on their accomplishments in 2011 which include an AKC National Championship in the 26” height class and winning the Large Dog Team Jumping class over 93 teams at the 2011 FCI World Agility Championships in France. Tori is a former AKC Junior handler who now balances her college life with her Agility training and competition.

“We wish the best of luck to Tori and Rev and we know they will make us proud!” said Carrie DeYoung, AKC’s Director of Agility. “Thank you to Crufts for the invitation to this prestigious competition.”

Crufts, which takes place on March 8-11, 2012 in Birmingham, England at the National Exhibition Centre, is considered the birthplace of dog agility, and is the largest dog show in the world. A crowd of more than 160,000 attended last year’s event, with many packing the main Arena to watch the Agility competition. For more about Crufts, visit http://www.crufts.org.uk/.
