We only started our agility journey in Dec 2021 so in 2022, we progressed from AKC Novice and now competing at the Masters level and racking up points and double Qs for our MACH. We're also competing in UKI in the Senior division. Before agility became all-consuming, Picard earned his AKC Rally Advanced title, his AKC Advanced Tricks title, his Barn Hunt Senior title, AKC Herding Test and his World Canine Freestyle Organization Musical Freestyle Beginner title! He also LOVES to play in our local Toss and Fetch and UpDog frisbee competitions. One title he will NEVER earn is dock diving! He thinks water is acid. He is everything I have ever dreamed of as my first border collie and agility dog. Thanks to you and Julie Oakes for making this possible!'
