Nova in the Fall

By Jeff | Nov. 04, 2015

Fall is finally upon us and the leaves make a great backdrop for Nova, so we took some time to get a couple quick shots. Nova of course was a bit distracted by all the new leaves and smells of fall, but that’s ok.

Nova Earns Her UAGI Agility Title

By Jeff | Nov. 01, 2015

A few weeks ago, we entered Nova in a UKC agility trial. We entered her in 5 runs and she qualified in 4 of them. The best part though, was that this means that she got her novice title, or “UAGI”! Check out the rest of the article for video of her performance.

Nova's First AKC Agility Trial

By Jeff | Jul. 28, 2015

This was a big weekend for Nova! We went to visit my parents and also competed in her first AKC agility trial on Sunday! If you recall, she tried her paw at UKC over a year ago and it didn't go quite as planned. We've been practicing really hard though and she's been consistently doing well in more advanced classes and at some fun runs.

Puppy Play Day

By Jeff | Jun. 15, 2015

This past weekend, we drove Nova around town to visit some friends. We thought it would be a good idea to let her have some play time with other dogs since almost all of the dogs she’s interacted with lately have not wanted to play with her or haven’t been allowed (such as at class), that we were worried it was turning her off to other dogs in general. It’s possible she’s just getting more “watchful” instead of “playful” now that she’s older, but she did get a couple of great play sessions in and we got lots of photos.
