Dogs of all ages can participate in Dances with Dogs and often they will compete until well into their senior years.
Following are four senior dogs who achieved Advanced titles, and retired from competition.
* Murphy, a Border Collie, owned and handled by Sharon Clark, achieved her Advanced Freestyle title;
* Gemma, a Golden Retriever owned and handled by Gay Westmore, retired with Advanced titles in both Freestyle and Heelwork to Music; and
* Banjo, a Labrador Retriever owned and handler by Ros Smith, also gained his Advanced titles in the Freestyle and Heelwork to Music divisions.
These dogs were wonderful ambassadors for our sport and their performances were always very popular with the general public.
