Crash and I are very excited to be representing Canada at the 2014 IFCS World Championships! This red dog has taken me far and beyond where I ever could have dreamed. He is such a joy to run on course. He amazes me on a regular basis how experienced he feels to run while still being a very young dog who is just coming to the end of his second season in competition – which included his first international competition when we competed for the Canadian Team at the European Agility Open in Belgium this past July.
Crash loves to go for long walks on the golf course near his home and chase around with his border brothers and sisters. Crash also enjoys taking part in Little Moe’s Paws For Fun agility and disc demos at exhibitions in his home province of Nova Scotia, and loves playing disc with his little human (Benjamin) and heard the cat around the house on his days off.
Having been involved in competitive sport for as long as I can remember, whether it be hockey, tennis, basketball, baseball, etc, none of these sports has provided me with the amount of joy as canine agility – I have my wife Elisabeth to thank for getting me hooked. I love every single second that I’m out training or competing with Crash, and cannot wait to put on the red and white alongside some of the most talented dogs our country has to offer on the world stage – congrats to all who were selected to play at next year’s competition!
Crash and I are very grateful for all the support we have received from family and friends over the past few years and will be looking to make them all proud. GO CANADA GO!!!!
