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.

About Trials, Off-Courses And Weaves

We had a trial in Prestranek yesterday. Unfortunately we had an off-course on the weaves, which hasn't happened in a really long time. We were also the test team for A2/J2 M level and it was pretty good, we got 1 fault because I made a mistake. The time was unfortunately not so good since I made several other mistakes that I really didn't have to make. It's always my fault, not Xsara's. Anyhow, we did well in the Eukanuba Winter Cup and became combined champions on our level. The wins in Gornja Radgona and Železniki plus 5th place in Postojna were enough (three best results out of four trials count)to gain 1st place all combined. I think we won't be getting trophies for some time now that we are on next level, so I'm glad we successfully left the first level!

First Place!

Xsara earned another sandwich on yesterday's competition. With two clean runs and good times she placed 1st. I was particularly happy because this means we accomplished the last requirement to proceed to the next competing level. We will run on 2nd level on the first outdoors trial. To cheer us there were our breeder Neva, Xsara's sister Sena with her Aša and baby Gaja and, of course our Gašper. We were also happy to see some snow but there wasn't much of it. The day passed ever so quickly.
