    Thanks for the kind words! Yes, every dog sport you do solidifies the bond between you and the dog. They are capable of so very much.

    Congratulations on your great weekend. Breeze (age 9) and I are heading out to AKC Agility Nationals next month. It will be my first time to go and her retirement from regular competition The main thing is having fun no matter what you do.

    Yay Martha, that's so awesome!! I will be cheering for you and Breeze. What height do you run in?
    Thanks Judy, I know you, too, enjoy doing a lot of different things with your dogs and their achievements are huge. When he finishes his MXP title (needs 2 more Q's), we're going to take up tracking. Any advice??

    I wouldn’t call that a “little” brag ... and I wouldn’t call it “GDG” .... GREAT JOB !!! Congrats!

    Agility isn’t a sport dogs can just “do” ... a lot of hard work, dedication, and training went into that accomplishment! Keep it up - great things ahead

    We take lessons at Rush'N Around agility in Manhattan, IL. The owner/trainer there, Annette, is the best of the best. I can never say enough good things about her.
    I have a degenerative muscle disease (one of the things I don't often mention is that Tito is also a mobility assist service dog), and, although I did the training, she runs him for me in the trials. She is just fantastic.

    Great accomplishment Barb. I've been doing agility for years and to get those titles in 15 trials is amazing. The training is so key and a major commitment. I run my husband's Aussie due to his bad knees. Because he did such a great job of training, she was easy to run. Enjoy your new pursuits.
