Grace is 13 years old and only discovered HTM in 2011. She works with Nicola and they have a natural working partnership.
Grace has competed successfully in Agility, Flyball and Breed (Conformation) classes.
Grace has her flyball dog ICE BLUE MOON award and her Kennel Club Good Citizens GOLD award.
In 2009, on the day before her 11th birthday, Grace was found in a distressed state, unable to walk. She spent three days in the vets where they decided that she had a prolapsed disc. An MRI scan found that she had, in fact, three protruding discs! This meant immediate retirement from flyball and agility and as her hind movement was not 100%, she wasn't able to go into veteran classes in breed.
For two years we have worked to get her as fit and as stable as is possible. At HTM training we discovered that Grace has a natural apptitude for HTM, so with careful monitoring by the vet, Grace will have fun with Heelwork To Music for as long as she wants to.
