- Xsara and Tani
- Sava Sara Brakada, AKA Xsara was born on 06-27-2004. She was raised in Kennel Brakada spending the first two months of her life on beautiful countryside Gorenjska (Slovenia) with her siblings and parents. As soon as she came to Ljubljana we started a puppy class, followed by an obedience class. She passed her B-bh exam with 96 points (instructor Agility EO winner Polona Bonač). We now continue with Rally-Obedience under Polona's supervision. Our biggest passion however is Agility. We started our first Agility class in October 2005 (club Agility Ilirija, instructor Silvia Trkman, two times agility world champion). When Silvia stopped teaching agility classes, we switched to Daša Zakotnik. We regularly participate in Agility trials in Slovenia and sometimes abroad. Xsara also loves to learn new dog tricks, you can see some of them in our videos. Her other passions include long walks, big meals and playing with dogs, specially her pyr shep sister Tani, her crazy agility pals and her sister Sena.

A Trial And A Seminar With Gwyn Roberts
On Saturday's trial in Ljubljana we had the assistant of the selector of British team Gwyn Roberts as the judge. The courses on first level were easy, but very different from ours on A2/J2 and A3/J3 levels. The rules inEngland are a little different - larger distance between the obstacles, other course dimensions and so on. Anyway, Xsara did well, she was a little faster this time but missed another contact and even dropped a bar (weird). We were still 2nd because many teams were disqualified. On sunday the judge held a seminar but Xsara was still very tired and couldn't perform best. I let her sleep after the seminar.
