More Agility Fun With Rocco Havanese

Photo by In Motion Photos
This past weekend we went to our third agility trial (three weekends in a row, whew!). We had a blast, once again, but we sure are looking forward to some rest and relaxation this weekend!

This past weekend we ran for the first time in the AKC Open class (after getting your Novice title you move up to Open) and Rocco and I were able to snag two qualifying runs in JWW (Jumpers With Weaves) and one qualifying run in Standard (the course with ALL the obstacles).

Here's a look at a JWW run that was TOUGH, but Rocco handled all the tight turns beautifully!


Also, Tuesday was Rocco's second birthday, and he's running an awesomely HUGE giveaway he thinks you'd all LOVE! Check it out and don't wait to enter! Rocco's giving away a prize pack of some of his favorite things… a $500+ value in all to one lucky winner!


The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and My GBGV Life to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!). Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the Hop.

    1. I do think there should be treats and toys for the humans too! hehe! Our reward is getting to run and have fun together, and that works for me!

  8. What a terrific run! I'm thinking Rocco is so fast he doesn't even need the bands to keep the fur out of his eyes. The wind just moves it away.

    1. Funny you say that! We've tried it, but his hair still gets in his way when he moves left and right!

    1. Thank you! We've got a couple of Havanese pals doing agility and they're all having tons of fun! Quite a change from when we were the first Havanese team competing in our area 10 years ago.
