Moses is an 8-year-old Border Collie-Lab mix who started as Jordan’s Novice A dog in 2012. They began with a few puppy classes and beginners’ manners classes to help house train Moses. The trainer asked Jordan if he had ever thought about agility. He had never heard of the sport and when he researched it, he did not think that his small city could offer it. But they quickly found a Rally class and, the rest is history.
Moses has earned numerous titles in Agility, Rally, Obedience, Agility and Trick Dog, including being the second All-American to earn the AKC Agility Grand Championship. “I knew that when I first read of the AGCH, it was something that I wanted our team to strive for,” he said. Moses is on his way to his third consecutive AKC Agility Invitational this year in Orlando as the #2 All-American and working on his MACH 14. “I have certainly been spoiled with the best Novice A dog anyone could ask for!”
