Inspiration

Kathy DeLucas and Radar are a favorite local team.  I depend so heavily on my mobility that I am always in awe every time I see Kathy direct Radar, the Brittany Spaniel, around an agility course.  They have become a very consistent team over the last few years, but spectators never tire of seeing them do so well.  Just a little inspiration for the New Year.

That is awesome. Really makes you think of what you could do and how much you are missing out because you don't HAVE to train at such a distance.

That is amazing teamwork, and that dog is phenomenal! I can see why they're local favorites!

Incredible handling. What a team.

Awesome! And yes, inspiring, too. :-) I love seeing humans and dogs with ultra strong communication skills. What a great video!

I am so jealous of those trainers that can teach distance like this. I am too lazy! I never enter Fast because of it. What a beautiful team!

I am impressed. Agility is teamwork and this IT in spades. Don't think I will ever be that good a handler/trainer.

That's awesome!! There's an older lady (at least in her 70's but possibly much older) who trials locally with her Sheltie and she often stands in the middle of the ring and directs the dog. I always love watching her. Honestly, Radar was more impressive though!

Amazing. When I'm teaching kids how to train their dogs I try to emphasize that it's all about teamwork and communication. This video says that perfectly. Thanks for sharing.
