Congrats to those winning spots at the AKC World Team Tryouts this weekend for the FCI Agility World Championships in Reiden, Germany this coming October 1-3, 2010.

We hear lots of folks had a great time watching the live stream from Agility Vision. Would have loved to see it sitting back in some nice home theater seating, BOL, but we did a ton of hiking this past weekend - the weather was just too nice to stay inside.

See the results for rounds 1-5 here. The following won spots on the World Team at the Tryouts. The two remaining team spots for each jump height will be chosen by the Team Coach and the Team Captain using the dogs’ show record both during the year, performance at the AKC Nationals, as well as their performance at the Tryouts:

Marcy Mantell and Wave
Dee Anna Gamel and Kelsi

Karen Holik and Sizzle
Diane Goodspeed and her Sheltie Demon

Channan Fosty and her Border Collie Icon
Terry Smorch and his Border Collie Presto

Agility Vision has a listing of running orders, course maps and full results sheets from the weekend. You can also see info on their VOD and DVD's from the weekend, as well.

A fun video of agility handling in the that we have tons of trees around I think we may have to give this a try! now has Agility iMap available for the iPad on iTunes. Here's a link to a YouTube demo. Agility iMap is the ultimate course designer for dog agility on the iPad. Design a course with your fingers (or paws!).

  1. 1.Dog lovers will love this: a lovely tribute to a very special dog written and sung by my sister Kathy. Shaman and Kathy were very close. She knew over 100 words. A very intelligent dog.


Thanks for barking in!
