Our Agility Teammates

When we consider agility teams, we think of the dog, the handler and often a coach or trainer.  But, if you observe, you’ll see that the team is much larger than that.  Of course, there are fellow agility enthusiasts.  And, there are the friends, partners, and family that show up to classes and trials to cheer us on.  They often willingly pitch in and run the trials without hesitation.  They stand by the ring and video record runs.  They are there as we exit the ring to tell us everything that went right with our runs, especially on our not-so-great days.  And, they are often a calm, quiet, supporting presence sitting in the crating area – happy to be a part of the game and to listen.  Thank you to all of our teammates. It is good to know that when we run, we never run alone.

Congratulations to Angela and Visa on Winning the 2015 AKC Agility Invitational!

The AKC Invitational is an annual event that invites the Top 5 agility dogs of each breed to attend. Angela and Visa, as well as nine more of Joan’s students, received an invitation this year.  There are four rounds in the competition.  The top scoring dogs from each jump height compete in a final round.  Angela and Visa made it to finals for the 12 inch jump height and then won the final round!

This win is especially sweet as Visa is the daughter of Joan’s dog, Neil.

Congratulations to Angela and OTCH MACH7 Triune’s Baby’s Gone Shopping UDX3 OM4 VER RAE MXC2 MJC2 MXF T2B (“Visa”)
