Star was awesome on the Novice Agility run. Many thanks to our trainer who has helped Star and me a great team. Agility takes lots of practice for both human and dog. But Star loves it and that makes all the difference. Love this girl. This is today’s video of her third qualifying run. ... See MoreSee Less

Very nice run! Congratulations! She does love it!!!β€πŸ˜‰πŸΎ

Very Nice!!! Wonderful!! Very Nice!

I love the Standards. Have had 2 now. The personality is like no other dog.

I'm impressed with YOU, Michelle. I can neither run NOR remember the order of obstacles! Good job!

So proud of my girl GCH Quasar Evening Star BCAT FDC TT ATT ACT1 who had a great weekend at the Mattaponi KC Agility Trials. Star went clean (scored πŸ’―)on both her runs on Saturday and Sunday and qualified on her run last weekend to earn her AKC Agility Novice Title. Star loves Agility has a blast!! Way to go Star. Her reward? String cheese β€” her favorite!! Video of today will follow. ... See MoreSee Less

Well we decided to join our friends and head west to Amana, Iowa dog shows. We attended the Tri-City Kennel Club and Cedar Rapids Kennel Association four-day shows. My boy Nate (Centara Prominent Patriot at Quasar) went Winners Dog and Best of Winners for a three-point Major. He also went reserve the other days. These were his very first shows! Linda Dobbie

And not to be outdone our girl CH Quasar Fleuer-De-Lis (Lily) went Select for a four-point Major and attained her a AKC Grand Champion Title. Boel Niklasson Nelson Kingsley

It was a successful show, we got to see many of our Midwest friends and the start of a great three week trip west with all our Schnauzers.

So proud of my young boy Centara Prominent Patriot at Quasar (GCH Quasar Double Barrel x CH Centara Magic Memory) who passed the AKC Farm Dog Test twice under two different judges to earn his first title. Nate is not a year old yet and performed well. Horses were the livestock at this event so last week I took him to my daughter’s farm where he met Jack and Ed.

And Quasar Evening Star attained her AKC Championship & Grand and a number of other titles including a Versatility award. Hopefully as AKC events begin to open we will begin competing again.

Star (GCH Quasar Evening Star) and I have been training for Agility competition. She loves all the equipment and has done well learning weave poles. This is the most difficult equipment for a dog to learn since weave poles make no sense to them. Star did great learning to weave through six poles and is now developing her skills through 12 poles and always entering on her left shoulder. Can’t wait for competitions to begin. Go Star go ⭐️🌟⭐️🌟 ... See MoreSee Less

Great job (Michelle Root) Mitch & Star!!! Do you use chicken wire at first when starting weave pole training?

She's doing great! Look how proud she is!

Your girl is doing great. Im sure it has to do with her trainer.

Very nice!

Nice....love the little video... πŸ™‚

Excellent!!

AWESOME

What an unusual color. Salt and pepper? My mini had this same color on his outer coat when we got him. Kind of golden, but mostly on his back. After pet clipping, he lost his rough coat. My pup used to watch tv when he was young. Animal shows. Beautiful pup you have there!

There he is! Mr. Smarty pants. ❀❀❀ He's adorable. I want a boy too! 😘🐾😍

Love it!!!

Happy National Puppy Day!!❀️❀️ ... See MoreSee Less
