Keith and Laney
This quarter’s Featured Training Team is Keith Clapp and his wonderful little rescue dog, Laney. I’ll let Keith tell you about their continuing journey together. Laney is one lucky dog to have found such a super new home. ☺
“Carol found a three month old puppy darting across a four lane road. She became Laney. We played with Harris Teeter bags and other stuff each morning as I drank my coffee. In the fall we started the DogLogic beginner’s class; clicker training, mats, surfaces….. All that fun stuff. Laney loved it. We gradually moved on to the other more advanced DogLogic classes and began competing in CPE agility when she was about three.
We stayed in CPE Level 1 for six or eight months because there is no teeter or weaves at that level. As we became more proficient we graduated up to Level 5 and qualified for Nationals in 2016. The Laney team’s most satisfying achievement was being among the only 27 teams out of about 700 that qualified in Jackpot (CPE gamblers) at that competition.
It has been a fun ride and we continue to look forward to our weekly privates with Lynne or Karen.”
