My dogs and I participate in many different activities. We try to find things that appeal to both them and me. If a dog really enjoys an activity, we'll pursue it. I have put over 170 performance and conformation titles on my dogs. Here are some pictures of each of them enjoying the games.

10 Bad earned his UKC weight pull title! He pulled 8 times his weight on three different days to earn his novice level weight pull title. He had to pull 144 pounds. He pulled 177, 177, and 144. pounds. Weight pull isn't his passion, so he is now retired from weight pull.

11 Bad earned his AKC Beginner Novice title! May 7, 2017
Download MPEG4 12 Friday showing off her rally skills. :-) This was a score of 96 for a 4th place out of 24 dogs.
July 30, 2016
13 Colt earning that last title for his SUPER DOG! To earn Super Dog, the dog has to earn titles in conformation, agility, rally, obedience, and weight pull. Colt earned his weight pull title on March 8, 2015 by pulling 370 pounds!
14 In rally, you can talk to your dog... To let him know he's doing well. Bad is thrilled to hear we're doing a good job.
15 Bad, heel!
16 This was some serious attention heeling... He was starting to forge ahead. Silly boy!
17 Colt's stay during his Beginner Novice run... Luckily for me, Colt has an incredible stay.
18 Lined up, ready to go!
19 Tehya earned her UKC agility level 1 title! September 29, 2012
20 Ah! Look at that beautiful smile! CPE Trial in Frankston, TX

21 Air Ember! What an athlete! Ember earned her first AKC title today. Way to go Em!
October 10, 2009
22 Colt working his way through his first UKC Rally Obedience course.
23 Our second CPE weekend... Ember demonstrates how to go up and over the apex of the A-frame with speed.
May 9-10, 2009
24 I didn't train Ember to leap over the apex... I feel that could be an unsafe way to perform this obstacle. So, she runs up, and drives down to her 2 on 2 off spot.
25 You can see her focusing on her "spot".
26 Ember doesn't do anything slow... This dog walk is about 4.5-5 feet off the ground. She speeds across.
27 I love to see her working... looking for her "spot".
28 Tehya earned her first agility titles this weekend! I was a super proud Mama.
29 Tehya is my first "bred-by" performance dog... And she's the second generation since Ember is her mama.
30 Doesn't she look HAPPY?
31 We're finally getting back into agility a little... September 27-28, 2008
32 What a great birthday weekend. The weather was great and Ember had a great time.
33 Can we say INTENSE?
34 Run run run, Emmy! Why do they call this the "dogWALK"?
35 Up and over!
36 Emmy qualified in eight of ten runs. One NQ was my fault. (I got lost on the course.)
37 The other NQ was Emmy's fault. Yes, she went under the tire. Brat!
38 And then she gave me this beautiful smile... Didn't I do good, Mama?
39 Emmy has a beautiful jumping style. She has a nice natural tuck.
40 Petey LOVES agility. He's my first UKC, NADAC and AKC agility titled rattie!
41 A rather symbolic picture... Devan is getting Raney ready to run. Devan's trainer (Amanda) is sitting in the background with Cari getting ready for our run.
42 Devan runs to the end of the teeter to supervise... Devan and Raney managed to capture yet another Junior High In Trial on Saturday morning.
Spetember 9, 2006
43 I love to see Raney and Devan together... Both girls are SO pretty. They make a beautiful pair.
44 Emmy is a very fast girl... When I saw this picture, I asked Tracey if I'd stumbled. She said that I was sprinting to keep up.
45 Petey comes tearing out the tunnel... See the dirt he kicked up?
Download WMV 46 Cari in Wichita KS April 2004 Listen to her excited little barks!
She qualified in this run and earned her OJP.
Download WMV 47 Petey earns his first AKC agility qualifying score. Petey loves to play in agility. Watch his happy face.
January 14, 2006
Download WMV 48 Cari is a fast little girl! She would have had a clean run, except Mama got in the way in the far corner by the red jump (almost at the end of the run.)
January 14, 2006
49 Emmy is a very intense agility competitor. She LOVES the game!
January 7, 2006
50 This was our very first AKC agility trial. She was perfect except those darn weaves.
51 Devan and Raney had a successful weekend!!! Devan lead Raney to her very first agility title on Saturday, January 7, 2006.
52 Devan and Raney pose with Judge Joseph Reese.
53 It was so cold on Saturday we had to wear our coats inside.
54 This was shortly before Raney had a brat moment. Raney was a bit tired and decided instead of playing with Devan, she was going to find Mama. She left the course with only two obstacles left.
55 This was Sunday, January 8. Raney made up for being a brat on Saturday by doing everything Devan wanted perfectly. Devan won her third Junior High in Trial and a total of 50 points for the weekend.
56 Jump, Raney!
57 That dogwalk is really high and scary when you're tiny.
58 Raney rides the teeter down as Devan supervises.
59 Emmy says "Hurry up, Mama!" January 2006
60 Petey barrels across the sway bridge. This is one of the different pieces of UKC agility equipment.
61 Bo decided to keep my kids company. This was at a UKC trial January 2006.
62 After 6 years, I finally registered Raney. Raney adores Devan. She won't play in agility with any one like she does Devan.
UKC Agility Trial, September 2005
63 Devan won HIT Junior in two trials. It was Devan's second trial and Raney's first. Raney has two legs toward her UAG-I title.
64 Weave, Petey, weave! UKC agility trial
65 Devan and Dare try the teeter. Dare isn't real enthusiastic about agility. Devan was a trooper though.
66 Bo and Cari navigate the teeter. UKC trial.
67 The whole crew hanging out at a NADAC trial. May 2005
68 Emmy earned her UAG-I agility title today! 1/9/05
69 My agility Petey. 1/8/05
70 Wonder what she's looking at... 1/1/05
71 Sandy does the agility dance. This is Sandy walking through the Excellent course before we ran. It looks really silly to see all these people walking around a course, talking and motioning to an imaginary dog.
72 The lady in the black vest is Andrea... She's the Good Will Ambassador of Agility. She's always so nice to everyone. She always has an encouraging word... even when you just ran the most awful run ever!!!
73 Emmy went to agility class tonight. She flies through the weaves. I'm teaching her using the channel method.
74 Trying a front cross. Emmy is only jumping 4 and 8 inches right now. I think she'll be jumping 12 inches when she starts competing.
75 Another big jump. She has absolutely no trouble clearing this 4 inch jump!
76 Emmy learned how to do the BIG teeter tonight. She's not scared of anything!
77 Another jump... Because she's so young (9 1/2 months) I'm not allowing her to jump much.
78 Emmy navigating the tire. The look on Emmy's face really impresses me. She's really concentrating on what she's doing.
79 Oooo... The hardest part... Holding the down on the table while Mama walks away. She did great though! Never broke the "Wait".
80 Emmy races through a tunnel. She's getting prepared for her agility career.
81 Cari's Agility Ribbons October 31, 2003
82 I fly like a bird with the greatest of ease...
83 Bullet dog Petey jumps 16" in competition. As you can see, he can easily clear 24".
84 Such a serious little girl! September 2003
85 Notice... Only one foot touching the ground.
86 Speed demon!
87 This shows how high Petey jumps. Rat Terriers are VERY good agility dogs. They have a natural ability to run and jump.
NADAC June 2003
88 See how Petey uses his tail as a rudder? NADAC June 2003
