Two local Australian shepherd brothers brought home ribbons from the Klamath Dog Fanciers Agility Trial held Oct. 11 – 13 at the Klamath Falls Fairgrounds.
Foxxmo and Benny won 13 qualifications, three new titles, seven first place ribbons, one second place ribbon, two third place ribbons and three Q’s in Time to Beat.
This trial was the sixth AKC agility trial that handler Johnene Mc Donald has entered the dogs in. They are excelling quickly, she said, due to the help of Terry Popish, of Snowy Pine Dog Training in Graeagle, who has the top two agility St. Bernards in the United States.
Foxxmo is now in Preferred Excellent Standard, Preferred Excellent Jumpers and Open Fast and has 10 points toward a title in Time to Beat. He has earned five titles to date.
His brother Benny is in Preferred Open Standard, Preferred Open Jumpers and Preferred Excellent Fast and has 11 points toward his title in Time to Beat. He has earned four titles.
McDonald attributes their great success to the amazing coach she has found. “Terry Popish is the very best dog trainer around. She is experienced, hardworking and dedicated. I am so lucky to be able to work with her in training these young pups,” said McDonald.
