In April, Keltic got his Agility Dog of Canada title putting him in Advanced in all events. He has since moved out of Advanced in both Jumpers and Snooker but he has yet to run a Masters level course. He needs only two more Gambles for his Advanced Games title. Standards are another story. He did get one Advanced Standard Q in 2015, he needs three for his Advanced Agility Dog title and they might be hard to get as we are still working through weave and contact issues. At the end of 2015, it seemed like we had gotten past the start line stay problem; I guess we'll see if that's true on Sunday.

We also did three UKI trials last year. Keltic did get one Q in Speedstakes. He also was in the Kanine Kup for his third year. It was likely our last year as he gets a handicap now since he has the ADC title and he would get the same handicap next year even if he didn't have the title because the goal of K9 Kup is to prepare dog and handler teams for agility trials so they want to be able to offer the opportunity to other teams just starting out. Keltic's team did really well taking first place overall and placing first in the Standard event.

This year we are entered in the AAC Regional Championships, Keltic's first. Hopefully we will do well as Nationals are being held only two hours drive from home.
I'm hoping 2016 will be as fun as 2015 was with no injuries and lots of clean runs.
