Personal message

Simon Says is a sweet, mischievous, clever Siberian Husky who competes nationally and internationally in Dog Agility - a sport dominated by herding breeds, specifically, border collies.  As an ABC (Anything but a Border Collie), he has inspired owners of various 'un-trainable' breeds to try out the fun sport of agility for enrichment, and to try Canine Conditioning / K9 Yoga for better physical health.  

 
In 2019, at 3 years old, he competed at the FCI Agility World Championships in Finland, where he won many hearts, but not medals.  It was such an amazing experience and we both learnt so much!  In 2022, he competed at the IFCS World Agility Championships in Netherlands, where he exceeded my wildest dreams and won a Bronze Medal in Contact Agility!  In 2023, he earned the titles of Agility Champion, Agility Performance Champion, Jumping Performance Champion and Master Agility Performance Dog with the South African Dog Agility Association.  
 
His day job is to assist me as a demonstration dog for my Canine Conditioning classes, to help more pet owners prevent injury, reduce symptoms of aging and arthritis, and for post-injury rehabilitation.  
 
Simon has once again qualified to compete in the IFCS World Agility Championships to be held in France on 1 to 5 May 2024!  He will be 8 years old in May, so he is approaching retirement, and I'm painfully aware that any competition could be his last, so I'm taking full advantage of every opportunity that comes our way!  The event is held from 1 to 5 May 2024, so it's not likely that I'll be able to raise enough funds by then, but I'm going to try my best anyway!!
 
The cost of travelling with a dog from a third world country with a poor exchange rate is astronomical.  We would need about R100 000 to R150 000.  What we can't raise, will have to be loaned and paid off over a couple of years again, as we did in 2019 and 2022.  
 
Wishing you much furry love!
Leanne Williams, owned by Simon Says : The Husky

Get Simon The Husky to IFCS WAC 2024 Campaign

Get Simon The Husky to IFCS WAC 2024 Campaign Logo

Simon Says, a remarkable Siberian Husky excelling in Dog Agility breaks barriers by flourishing in a sport usually dominated by herding breeds. His achievements serve as inspiration for diverse dog owners to delve into agility and Canine Conditioning.

Having participated in global championships and clinched multiple agility titles, Simon, now nearing retirement at 8 years old, aspires to compete in the 2024 IFCS World Agility Championships in France. However, despite continuous efforts, raising the necessary travel funds, estimated between R100,000 to R150,000, remains a challenge, especially with the tight RSVP deadline of December 1, 2023.

Your support is greatly appreciated.
