Flyball Team

Well, I will be working on training Rascal for flyball sometime this year. Rascal's best friend Ruby (Border Collie) will also be doing it with us. B.J. ( a friend of mine/Ruby's owner) is working on building the jumps and the box. You can read his blog and look at our flyball jumps here.

We are also looking for more people to join us on a team. I will be talking about it here and showing you how to train your dog for flyball.

Watch This!

This is a video that was on Susan Garrett's Blog. This girl's dog (Gabby) died yesterday, only a couple of weeks after she was diagnosed with cancer. "Gabby brilliantly represented Canada at both the FCI and the IFCS world agility championships. She had a great career that included both field titles and regularly modeling for TV commercials. Just last fall the two of them won the Canadian Nationals Agility Championships in the veterans class," Susan Garrett states in her blog. This dog was not perfect in her agility runs, but her handler and her made the best team I have ever seen. Which is saying a lot, because I have watched a lot of agility teams. Here's the video: Enjoy!
