A teenager from Dorset has won both of the classes she qualified for with her dog at Crufts.

Jodie Forbes, 17, was competing for the first time in the Freestyle category with her border terrier Bramble.

They picked up the top prizes in the Young Kennel Club Freestyle class of Heelwork to Music and in the under 18s Groomer of the Year class.

Jodie, from Bournemouth, has trained three-year-old Bramble herself at home and at the Purbeck Agility Group.

Commenting on Facebook after her wins, Jodie said she was "in shock".

"I love her so so much - she did everything perfectly and had fun the whole time! What a ridiculously amazing couple of days!"
