Ready to go!

Well, it’s time to zip up the suitcases and do one last check of everything before we fly off to Europe this afternoon for our latest adventure.



It’s an honor to be asked to run on the national team for dog agility this year at the European Open in Belgium, and our local Northwest agility community has been very supportive. We have researched the judges, practiced the courses, and entered a local Belgian trial the weekend before EO. Now all that remains is looking forward to some great courses and keeping a clear mind during the competition.

The hardest part about going on the trip is leaving the family behind, including the puppies. I think Bella feels the same way as she is cuddling her daughter under my computer desk while I finish some last minute emails.

Pumi Puppy Training 8 Months with Aria and Krieger

We’ve been having some fun running the Pumi puppies at “baby dog” heights on one of the exercises we set up for Bella’s EO Agility training – 2 different handlers with different styles and I think you’ll see both puppies enjoying it!
