We are 5 sporty pugs and we want to show the world that we can also be a sporty breed of dogs. We are full of life and enjoy everyday as much as we can with our mom.
"Pugs" have a bad reputation as a fat and lazy breed and many people think that we can only jump on the sofa... It's about time the world see pugs as a healthy and active breed of dogs... Our agility titles: Balearic champion 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. National champion in 2011 and 2012, finished second due to injury in 2013. Represented Spain at the World Agility Open in 2011, 2012 where we make the penthalon finales each year and in 2014 we were picked as a wild card and once again made the finales of the penthalon 14th overall and biathlon 23rd, I'm so proud of my Pancho for all his hard work....Yes a Pug at the World championships!!! In 2013 we also represented España at EO in Belgium and won 4 rosettes at the International Agility Festival in grade 6 with a 4th, 8th and 9th place and 1st place at the IFCS qualifier at Oxford. Top 3 on every class at the Jersey Agility festival and made the small final. Pepito and Wilson have won titles too at trials like the Fab Show in Oxford UK in 2013 and team events with Pancho and many podiums at the Jersay agility festival too. I'm so proud of my babies, I really can't ask for more. OUR MOTO "PUGS RULE

It is nice to have some time off from trials and we used that time to rest and to work on some of our weaknesses like the dog walk, 45 degree weave entrance and some handling sequences.
This weekend we have a trial but I will use it to work on our sit stay and dog walk contact. We have some big plans for Julio and August with the European championships in Belgium where we will run in individual and team.
And then we will be off to the UK for Dawn Weave's FAB show and then the International agility Festival. So we need to be ready for those 3 main events and have fun!!.
After the Spanish championships where we had a brilliant jumping but a few nagging problems with the contact at the dog walk and the weave entrance, we had to go back to some specific training. I went back to Dawn Weaver's book and came across a course from the IFCS World champ 2008. That course had what we needed to training.
At jump 14 to 15 I had a few problems because Pancho kept going for the dog walk, so I had to find a solution. By moving forward Pancho wasn't really looked at me, so I had to wait for him to clear the A frame and then move forward to the tunnel and that's it problem solved :)
