First of all a big congratulations to Lauren and Blink as well as Teresa and Shady winning this weekend.  We have been super busy this week getting all geared up for Dash2Devon…so exciting!  If you are reading this and on Dash2Devon, post a picture on our Facebook page and show everyone what fantastic fun you are having with us!

We held regular classes this past week and our agility students did great work on their contacts and weaves polishing these skills for course running!  We started a new Agility Foundation class which some of our awesome Life Skills students have advanced into.  It is fantastic seeing our students grow and develop!  Keeping momentum and progressing towards a goal is super important!
