Boogie and Mike Mason

Boogie & Mike Mason recently attended the NADAC Championships held in Gillette, Wyoming. For a record fourth time, they came in 1st place in their division. In fact, Boogie had the highest score of any dog at any height in the double digit class.

Once again, in typical Boogie fashion, he had zero faults the entire event! And, of course, his enthusiasm for agility shone brightly as he barked (loud and proud) his way through each and every course.To top it all off, Mike & Boogie’s team “Super Dogs, Super Fun” with Cathy Percy & Ketch and Suzy Winkle & Sammy Blue came in 1st place in the team event. Way to go team!

How does Boogie get so good at agility?
He studies Clean Run from cover to cover!

Sally Nickelson & Steed

My big brag is for my little mutt with the BIG bark, Steed.  At almost 9 years of age, we finally managed to get the final Chances Q we needed for our first ever NATCH at the RAT Dog Days of Summer trial.  Then just a couple of runs later, we got the final tunnelers Q we needed for his first V-NATCH. It was a very long time coming. I’m so proud of my little man – it’s been such a fun journey with him. We hope for many more years of playing agility together!
