Abby Loves:

If you haven’t guessed already, she loves dock jumping and agility. She loves her dinner, but loves squeaky tennis balls just as much. She also enjoys frisbee, lure coursing, tracking, and chasing ducks/geese. Special days for her are going to Gramma’s house to play in the sprinkler, or going to visit her Great-Grampa and swimming in his pool.

Brief History:

Abby’s first AKC agility trial was September 2005, in Plano, IL. Our agility journey has taught us both so much. Since that first trial, Abby has earned Novice, Open, Exc A, and Exc B titles in AKC Standard and Jumpers with Weaves. She finished her Excellent A FAST title in January of 2009. She also competes in USDAA agility at the Masters level. Abby is close to a NATCH in NADAC but we no longer compete in that venue.

Her first Dock Dogs event was in the fall of 2005. We left Abby home and took her roommate, Alex, to the event. He is a flashy, natural jumper, and we thought he’d take right to the dock and pool. No such luck! Alex didn’t jump at all! The next day we brought Abby and she didn’t even give it a second thought. She was in that water faster than I could release her. Her Dock Dogs journey has been a great one. She’s been invited to World Championships twice. Her best Big Air is 23’6″ (electronic), Vertical is 7′.
