Our Agility Teammates

When we consider agility teams, we think of the dog, the handler and often a coach or trainer.  But, if you observe, you’ll see that the team is much larger than that.  Of course, there are fellow agility enthusiasts.  And, there are the friends, partners, and family that show up to classes and trials to cheer us on.  They often willingly pitch in and run the trials without hesitation.  They stand by the ring and video record runs.  They are there as we exit the ring to tell us everything that went right with our runs, especially on our not-so-great days.  And, they are often a calm, quiet, supporting presence sitting in the crating area – happy to be a part of the game and to listen.  Thank you to all of our teammates. It is good to know that when we run, we never run alone.
