They began taking agility class as an indoor activity during cold Chicago winters. But eventually he gained confidence and overcame his fear. He started competing in AKC Agility when he was 6 years old. She wanted a shelter dog since her then-partner, an Australian Shepherd, had come from a shelter. It took time, but they finally became a team and in Galveston qualified for the AKC National Agility Championship Kingis Song - Terry Gray / Richard Ghent - Kingis Story again in Kingis Song - Terry Gray / Richard Ghent - Kingis Story the day before she and Vern had lost their dog Sadie, another agility dogand they were not yet ready to adopt another one.
But a few days later Nelda was asked to foster Sandy, since she had recently been spayed and needed a quieter place to recover. She knew that Sandy had had a litter of puppies, was 2 years old, and house trained. She brought her home to meet Vern, another Chihuahua, and a cat. Nelda started agility in and has a few obstacles in her backyard. She handled the competition-size obstacles like she had been doing them all her life.
Getting numerous Kingis Song - Terry Gray / Richard Ghent - Kingis Story has simply been the icing on the cake! Judy wanted a dog to walk and hike with, and Macy does that and much more. Judy also enjoyed agility and Macy seemed to like it too, so they took more classes. Macy was afraid of the teeter and slow in the weaves only at trials for years. We qualified many times with no speed points. Finally, as I became more relaxed and had more fun, Macy ran faster, and we started getting more points.
We had more than enough double Qs. Every run is a gift. She was described as a spaniel mix, released to the American Brittany Rescue, and taken to a foster home in Spokane, WA. Lori and Len Johnson, retired for a couple of years, had begun their search in spring for an athletic dog to go hunting, biking and boating, as well as compete in agility.

She had spotted a little black dog running in the road earlier that day, witnessing several near-runover. I had the principal make an announcement for someone to claim the dog or who wanted to adopt.
No one wanted him. So, she took him along to visit her daughter for Thanksgiving weekend in Texas. Mary had no phone, only an umbrella. So, they walked for two hours until her daughter came home. We bonded. A bond that surpassed my capacities for love. Mary started obedience training with Teddy.
She remarked to an instructor that he had too much energy for obedience, and she suggested agility. Goode song. The pair started their agility career only doing two local trials. Later, they traveled a bit to nearby trials, doing only one or two days.
They sat out for six months when Mary had knee surgery. She was 3 years old when they Pale Blue Eyes - The Velvet Underground - 1969 Velvet Underground Live With Lou Reed training and then competing in agility. On Jan. I love competing with her. When Rosie is not competing or training, she spends quality time with Leslie on the couch or Flatt & Scruggs - Breaking Out / A Boy Named Sue her beloved tennis ball in the park.
He was rescued from a kill shelter by the Wisconsin Humane Society as a puppy, and we adopted him shortly after. Scotty is also a certified therapy dog with Pets Helping People. Gabbi loves sharing a little bit of her amazing boy with others. He has truly changed not only my life, but my world. He was halfway to earning his MACH when he suffered a disc rupture at the age of 6.
He spent two-and-a-half years in rehab before returning to agility in the Preferred class. He was 2 years old when she adopted him from a shelter and started basic obedience training so that he could be a well-behaved pet. When Dudley and Beth are not practicing their agility and obedience skills, they enjoy long walks, gardening, and camping. The pair started taking agility classes for fun when Jacy was 4 months old.
Eight years and 11 months later, she earned her PACH. They overcame many challenges along the way including two-and-a-half years of refusing the teeter. In Jacy came down with a mystery illness that almost claimed her life. She was hospitalized for a week after suffering continuous strokes, requiring emergency phlebotomies and surgery to remove her spleen. Denise was told to prepare for the worst, and that if Jacy did make it she might only have a couple years.
Jacy pulled through but was left with permanent kidney damage and deformed toenails because of the treatment. And exactly two years later at the same trial, she earned her PACH. In October she earned her CAX, just two years Kingis Song - Terry Gray / Richard Ghent - Kingis Story her debut in the sport. Gracie also participates in barn hunt, dock diving, rally, and obedience. At 12 weeks, rather than using his nose to push his treat dispensing ball around, he sat next to it and used a paw to rock it back and forth eating the treats as they fell out.
Every day is a new adventure for McGee. He lives to greet people and he loves to work. Maybe agility next? Nelson of Manorville, NY Chloe was rescued from a kill shelter as a puppy. When Nancy adopted her, she was 6 months old and her rescue foster told her that Chloe wanted a job. Chloe is an entertaining character when it comes to training and trials.

They started with puppy kindergarten classes and moved on to basic obedience as they wanted a dog with general obedience skills. They had never learned how to train those skills themselves. Amanda found out that she enjoyed working with Luke and that training was a great outlet for his energy, so they continued training one to two nights a week and entered their first rally trial when he was 11 months old.
In addition to rally, they have started competing in agility and have enjoyed Fast CAT events. He earned the RM on Nov. Mia was awarded her RAE on Oct. While earning these titles, the team won several Triple High Qualifying Scores. Most of the shelter volunteers were appalled by such behavior. I, on the other hand, was smitten!
I sat down on the curb and just watched her. Her shelter name was Petunia and later that week, Kelly adopted her and gave her a new name: Zuri. Kelly found that Zuri had many insecurities related to being a parvo survivor and spending a lot of time in the hospital. Shelter life was also hard on her.
