By Cathi Shover, Greater Indianapolis Brittany Club Agility Trial Chairman
The annual Greater Indianapolis Brittany Club all-breed agility trial was held August 8th and 9th at the Pawsitive Partners Dog Training Club in Beech Grove, Indiana. Judge Abbie Hanson, a Brittany breeder from Estill, South Carolina, provided exhibitors with flowing but challenging courses.
A Challenge Board Fundraiser was held to support the local Beech Grove Police Department K9 Association. Exhibitor participation was completely voluntary. In the spirit of good will and fun, exhibitors challenged themselves and fellow competitors to achieve a qualifying score, along with other criteria. One exhibitor was challenged to skip alongside her dog as it performed the weave poles, and another exhibitor earned their long awaited first QQ. In the end, over $500 was raised and presented to the Beech Grove Police Department K9 Association to help fund training, equipment and the health care of the Beech Grove Police Department police dogs.
