ALL CANADIAN – DOB: SEPTEMBER 10, 2007
Funkee has one of the biggest personalities in my home. She came to me at a very important time in my life. I lost a very young dog in an accident and was so sad that I quit training dogs and playing agility for a year or so. When Funkee’s litter came along (she has same dad as the pup I lost) I was encouraged to come meet the puppies. After alot of thought & encouragement from my family, I brought Funkee home. She changed my whole world. I had so much fun training this dog that I jumped right back in to training again full force! My biggest challenge with Fun was learning to deal with her confidence issues. When I started training her, she would get really stressed if she made any mistakes. She would shut down on an agility course. She had great skills but wasn’t ready for the types of expectations and pressures I was putting on her. I worked really hard to boost her confidence and waited until she was almost 4 to start competing with her. I’m so glad I took the time to build a better relationship because she won the very first competition we entered (Ontario Regional Championships) and we haven’t looked back since!
Here are her accomplishments to date:
