Team Practice, Take 2!!

The 2015 Team attended the second team practice at Star Hill Family Athletic Center in Tolland, Connecticut over the weekend. (P.S. This is where Team Tryouts are set to be held in 2017! Mark that down, folks. The site is wonderful.) It was a weekend of smart, animated training on various drills and coursework from the World Championship judges. Plus bubble-soccer spectating, lip-syncing, dancing, and lots and lots of cheering.

Practice from a Coach’s Perspective

There is nothing more thrilling than watching a team you are involved with come into the ring and lay down absolutely great runs.   That is the thrill I have been getting at each practice and that expect I will continue to get over the next 3 days s Team USA meets and conquors every challenge these judges will throw at them. 

Along that line, watching all 3 teams practice today made me very proud to be a part of this team.  All12 handlers made the most of …

Team Relaxation Day

Daisy and Solar outside the Nurnberg Operahouse

After a great breakfast at the Waldport hotel, a few of us headed over to the show site to take a look at the facilities.  It’s going to be exciting, that’s for sure! After that, several of us headed to Regensburg and walked around the city for a bit.  After visiting a beautiful cathedral and walking around for a bit, we split in to two groups.  I went with Nancy and her friend Ingrid, and Nancy …

The team arrives

The Team started rolling into the hotel on Saturday and everyone was accounted for by the end of the day Sunday. The hotel has a charming German ambience and is only a half mile from the show site. This morning I am going to check out the show site and the separate stadium where we will train on Tuesday and Wednesday. The breakfast room is filled with team members chowing down and checking mail on their laptops. Typing and talking….

We’re here!

All of the large, medium, and small dogs have been accounted for and are in Germany! The only hitch encountered so far is that AKC Agility Director Handy Hartman has yet to leave the USA due to flight delays. The team misses Andy and is looking forward to his arrival as soon as he can get a flight out of North Carolina.

The weather is crisp and cool and the leaves are changing color for the Fall, making the scenery gorgeous.  The hotel is beautiful and …

Less than a week to go!

Less than a week to go until the team arrives in Germany! What an amazing and dedicated group of handlers we have on our team this year.  Yes, this group of handlers is a persistent and tenacious group, with world class handling and training skills,  but more importantly, it is a group of people who represents the best that our sport has to offer; great training skills, great respect for their canine partners, and just plain head over heels in love with their dogs.  Win, …
