Phoenix Award 2016



Congratulations to Pat Burroughs and Jovi – this year’s recipients of the Phoenix Award at the Backyard Agility Dogs Aug 20 & 21st AAC Trial.


“Phoenix” (CH. OTCH Alfenloch Rio Lane Phoenix) was the first recipient of the Canadian National Agility Trial Champion title, awarded on August 26, 1990 in Manotick Ontario.   Phoenix was owned and handled by Pierre Lalonde.
In loving memory and recognition of Phoenix, The Phoenix Award will be awarded annually to the Highest Scoring Shetland Sheepdog entered in a Backyard Agility Dog AAC Trial. This

distinction was first presented in Cornwall, Ontario in 1997.
