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 New Challenge

Coming up soon: learning how to sk8 :)

I bought a skateboard today and we'll see how it goes, but I think she'll love it - she saw it for the first time and she just stepped on it like a pro! This time I decided to film every step of our progress and make a short video about teaching this trick. Should be interesting!

That is going to be one amazing trick!

Hey, my mommy just watched a video on youtube on a BC doing this trick last night & she said she wanted to teach me but she doesn't have a skateboard yet. Maybe next time... This trick should be very very easy! All you have to do is step on it & walk. Not much trouble to teach. Should be able to master it in a day!

In fact, this trick is a lot easier than I thought, and she can't get enough of it. She's not afraid of it at all and she barks the whole time she's on it which means she likes it.

Amber, you probably saw Silvia's dog Bu.

Fun!!!! I think Gracie would like something like that.

Woofs, Johann


Wow you really are one clever pup.Now you are going to try your paw at skateboarding? How cool. We look forward to seeing the video.

Oh Amber - I don't want her to step on it and walk, I want her to really skate, four paws on the board and occasionally push herself faster with one of her hind paws. This is a little harder, but it shouldn't be a problem.

Johann: I'm sure Gracie would love it!
