2018 Agility Show and Go
Another agility show and go has come and gone. Though the entries were down this year, we still had many people get some good work with their pups just a week before the SOTC agility trial. Thanks to all that came to support us, thanks to SOTC for working with us, and thanks to all members and non member who make this possible each year. Keep an eye out for the obedience/rally match this summer and the 2019 show and go.
Julie (Grouse Hill Ironess)
July 12, 2004-Oct. 29, 2015
Julie spent only the last 2 years of her life with us. Her early years were spent raising puppies to be trained for field work. After being retired she ended up in a bad situation for a couple years. She came to us through Molly's Wish. Julie was a kind and gentle soul who brought us much joy and affection. She will live in our hearts forever. Janice & Howard
Recently, I competed in my first obedience trail with my best friend, aka my dog. I must admit I was a bit nervous to be competing in a dog sport but soon learned that my nervousness was pointless. The stewards, judges, and friends were extremely helpful and supportive, providing me with guidance and a kind word when needed. The end result, my dog and I jived at the perfect moments and together we brought home a blue ribbon in our first Rally class, 3rd place in our next and our first obedience leg. It was a fantastic experience and I can't wait for our next competition.
