 “It was a wonderful day for agility, so much so that a couple of the "pups" decided to start agility a little early by running from the Rally ring into the agility ring to take a couple of tunnels! I wonder if that counted as training on show grounds?  It definitely was evident that these Beardies were ready to have fun!  The agility competition started with the game FAST. The Open class is usually the toughest class to qualify in but the Beardies that ran in Open FAST for this trial cut up the course and had the highest qualifying rate for the entire day.  The flow of the entire trial went really well; handlers were set and ready on the line and the crew was attentive and quick. Everyone pitched in to make it a well-run event.  Major kudos to the Club!  I had an absolute blast as a judge.  The dogs seemed to have a really good time and everyone was supportive of the athletes competing.  I look forward to seeing some of these "pups" again, especially the Rally dogs!”

We had a lovely day of weather for our 8th annual NCBCF regional agility trial.  Judge Laura Finco designed some fast and challenging courses for us and showed considerable appreciation for a beardie sense of humor.  Congratulations to Steve Lausmann and Izzy and Sara Carver and Piedra for picking up a leg in their first AKC trials! Congrats also to Pam Harris and Mary for finishing her Novice JWW title! A big thank you to our ring steward Jana Dozet, trial chair Jack Buhite, and all the volunteers who made the day happen!


Jack Buhite

Congratulations to our two High in Trial teams: Molly McNamara and Max and Sarah Halsey and Wizard!  Both were a pleasure to watch.  Thanks to Molly for doing such a fine job as Trial Secretary and keeping those scores coming while running Max for the only triple Q!  Our Course Builders, especially Chris and Tammy Domico, kept everything moving swiftly.  Working with Judge Laura Finco was a delight.
