We have very few trials in the winter. That's why I was incredibly happy when a friend asked me if I wanted to go to Voghera (Italy) with her. 4 trials in 4 days + agility seminar sounds just crazy enough! So we started this new year the way we love the most: on a beautiful ranch by a river in a winter wonderland. I only ran with Xsara on 2 of the trials because that's just enough to keep her craving for more. In the first run I managed to fall when I was performing a front cross, but all of our other runs were clean. So we got 2 3rd places combined and one 3rd placement in agility plus one r. CacAg - far more than I expected in such a tough competition. I really enjoyed seing some amazing runs by far more experienced handlers than myself and people were all incredibly nice, so it really was a wonderful experience.
- 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.
