Kaylee is my very first agility dog and has more than lived up to my hopes! She recently gained her Agility Dog Championship title and is well on her way to her MACH title in AKC. Kaylee was 2nd at the USDAA World Agility Finals as well as 2nd in the AKC Agility National Finals for 2002! She has also made an appearance on the David Letterman Show as well as the Purina Dog Chow Incredible Dog Challenge.

Kaylee is also my first dog to venture into herding.  She again has not let me down!  Kaylee is a very biddable working dog with good natural balance and nice outruns.  Right now we are working on learning how to drive which is much harder for me to grasp then for her.  She is flanking nice and square and doesn't back down from a tough sheep.  Kaylee placed 5th and 3rd at her first border collie trial in Novice. Kaylee has been to her first ASCA trial where she gained her started title easily on sheep.

Kaylee is a gorgeous bitch with a beautiful head and good reach of neck.  She could have easily finished in the breed ring but unfortunately her tail got stepped on by a horse when she was a year and a half and most of it had to be amputated.  So although the Ch will never come, she is still beautiful in our eyes.

 

Kaylee learned flyball while staying with Mike and Wendy Pape of Ketch Dog Training while I was on vacation for a few weeks. I ran her in her first and only flyball tournament so far and she easily gained her FD and then her FDX titles. She is a fast dog with a great swimmers turn off the box. Many thanks to my good friends and trainers Mike and Wendy for taking such good care of her while I was gone.
