First Dog Becomes Three-Time Agility Champ

First Dog Becomes Three-Time Agility Champ

MACH2 PACH McKinney’s Dexter MXS MXPB MJP3 MJPB PAX MXF T2B owned by Colleen McKinney of Lexington, OH

Colleen had never owned a dog before. But one day she saw an ad in the local newspaper about a Border Collie – Golden Retriever mix.

“I thought that sounded like a good dog,” Colleen said. “I headed out to a local farm, and Dexter picked me.”

After a good friend exposed her to agility, she enrolled Dexter in some classes and today “I have this fantastic dog who has given me great joy and companionship. Dexter is a gentle soul with a heart of gold and always gives 100 percent. My life has been immeasurably enriched because of his presence.”

Dexter has earned two AKC Master Agility Championships (MACH2) and recently obtained his Preferred Agility Championship (PACH) on March 12, 2016 in Zanesville, OH, at a trial sponsored by the Golden Retriever Club of Columbus, OH.
