Bandit has been participating in agility for about three years. “He was a great dog to start out in the sport with,” Kate said, “trotting happily towards every obstacle and learning everything with ease. He is both intelligent and reliable and will surely improve even more in the years ahead.”
He is a registered therapy dog with Therapy Dogs International (TDI) and has visited a middle school to give an agility presentation. He’s a part of both his community and the agility world and will soon be competing at his first national event.
Kate will also be competing at the JAC with her Belgian Sheepdog, Fly.
