Our first AKC Agility Titles!

Rocco zooms through the tunnel!
This past weekend we competed in our first AKC trial of the season (and only the second one in Rocco's career) and we earned our titles in both Novice Standard and Novice JWW (jumpers with weaves)!

It sure was hot out, so we had to be careful not to overheat and we both made sure to stay hydrated too.  We'll be glad when it starts to cool off -- maybe in a few more weeks.

Rocco was a little Roc star, running his heart out and grabbing his third qualifying run in each class to earn his titles.

After Novice, we move up to the Open class where things start getting a little more difficult.  We head to another AKC trial this weekend where we'll compete in the Open class for the first time.

Here's our Novice Standard run for the title!


Here we go on the way to our Novice JWW title!


Once again we had loads of fun… which of course is the most important part! Agility is really just a game of chase -- with a few obstacles thrown in! And Rocco loves to chase me… around the house, in the backyard and on the agility field!

Next Tuesday, Rocco turns two! I can't believe how fast he's growing up! Stay tuned for Rocco's Big Birthday Bash Giveaway next week! We've put together a collection of his favorite things for a HUGE giveaway valued at $500!


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.
