"I never thought I would compete in any dog sport. I just wanted to have a well balanced companion. My proudest moments in training came when I titled my Buddy who was extremely aggressive when I adopted him. He earned his CGC, RN & FD titles. I was moved to tears because training made him an awesome team mate and friend."
