There were all breeds and mixed breeds participating. The lure was just a couple plastic grocery bags tied to a rope an a pulley. 🙂 Xena has such a high prey drive anything that moves would prob grab her attention. Lol.

I supposed there’s risk if injury with any sport. We also do Schutzhund too and just finished up our first agility class last week. I want to try nose work, I think we’d excel in that too.

There are so many things that I am proud of, beginning with her confidence. She wasn't a super confident puppy from the...
Thought I would share a little run down of Kias's angelic vet visit:
Tonight was Kias's 1 year rabies and check-up and he was an angel the whole time! Perfectly behaved, quiet, and calm, though he did get a little scared of the vet feeling around all over him. He sat quietly and the waiting room...
Hey all! Wanted to share because I'm still so exstatic about his accomplishment.
Steel and I earned his BH-VT this weekend with Armin's club down in Palmyra, VA under SV judge Gerd Beck. It was our first IGP trial (and my first Obedience trial). It wasn't pretty like I wanted, but it was 100%...
