On Wednesday, September 29, at 5:30PM, Cinda Walters and her Australian shepherds, Jake, Zeke and Riley, will present an agility demonstration at NOLA City Bark. Cinda has been enjoying agility training and competitions for 8 years. All of Cinda's Aussies are rescues, and she has been working with them since she adopted them. Jake, 7 years old, was rescued from Pine, LA when he was 4 months old. In 2006, he won first place in the United States in the 24" Australian shepherd division in agility. Zeke, age 5, was rescued from Franklinton, LA, when he was 6 months old. Both Jake and Zeke have earned the top ranking of Excellent in agility; both also hold titles in sheep herding. Cinda will also bring her more recent rescue, Riley. Age 2 years, Riley is from Florida and has only been training for about 6 months. It will be interesting to compare the "rookie" to Cinda's 2 experienced competitors.
The demonstration will be held in the field across from the dog park; the dog park will remain available to permit holders and their off-leash dogs. You may watch the agility demonstration with your dog, but she must be on-leash while outside the fence and viewing the demonstration. This program is free and open to the public. Non-permit holders are welcome to come and visit outside the dog park, but, as always, only registered dogs are allowed within the gated area.
Following the demonstration, Cinda will be glad to answer questions and will have information available on agility training lessons.
Thursday, September 30, is the rain date for this event.
