Runbye Do It With Passion

Panache, born in 2020, was planned way before the Covid outbreak but was a lockdown puppy, this provided its own challenges with socialisation and preparing for potentially large events with crowds. Nicola ran “Puppy Diaries” with Panache to help people in a similar situation prepare their dogs for life after the pandemic. Panache attended Hannah and Becky’s Young Dog classes at Wild Paws which gave him brilliant agility foundations. Panache is a very different to her previous dogs and Nicola took about bringing out the wild side in her super calm and cuddly border collie boy. Nicknamed Mr Perfect he was an angelic puppy and young dog who always tries so hard.

Panache began his competing career tentatively and liked to ensure he got things right, he struggled sometimes with the ring environment so Nicola developed a plan to help his confidence and wow did it work! From a shaky start his confidence and speed grew to take him from Grade 2 to Grade 7 in 12 months. To top it off his last win to Grade 7 was in the highly competitive Agility Stakes Qualifier class.  He also went above and beyond and qualified for Crufts 2023, he went on to win the Large Crufts Novice Cup. He continued to amaze by being selected to try out for Team GB in 2023, an amazing experience for such a young dog.
