A dog and its owner have been crowned winners at one of the most prestigious agility competitions in the world.

Jenny Kimber and her two-year-old Border Collie called Rogue, from Oxford, competed in agility qualifying heats across the country before winning the Large Novice final at the Kennel Club Olympia Agility Stakes.

The competition which was held at the London International Horse Show at Olympia in December, saw dogs of agility compete in five finals in the small, medium, large, large novice and ABC categories.
