"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

Pugs walk about in Mallorca

Last week we went for a nice walk in the country with our mama and papa. We had a great time and it wasn't too hot... 

Training and contacts

This weekend we ran a course that was very enjoyable where you will find a few difficultes from wraps, front crosses and rear crosses. 
We also worked on our contacts to show you that running contact are a good option for small dogs and this will allow the dog to keep running without losing speed.

Competition july 2012

This weekend we went to the "centro canino Son Gual" for a competition for the Balearic league 2012. We haven't raced since our trip to the UK and we had time to work on the "sit stay" because that was a big problem over there. 
On saturday we had a beautiful clear agility round and a clear but a little messy jumping. Pancho won overall and I was so proud of my baby.
On sunday we had 2 eliminations BUT I was glad because we learned something new!!! I tried to handle a "SCOOP". This is when the handler is recalling the dog over a jump and almost passes the dog across himself from one hand to the other so he can shape the dog's corner on the way to the next jump, the handler needs to stand at the exact point where he wants the dog to corner. (From Dawn Weaver's book: Knowledge equals speed!)
Like is said "WE TRIED" but didn't make it the first time round because I wasn't at the exact point.. so we tried again and did it!!! The second elimination was my fault, I had nothing left in my legs and couldn't run anymore :(
Our baby Wilson entered his first infantil competition and he did great. At 16 months, we had to wait for his body to reach adulthood because of his displacia. The specialist is happy with the work we have been doing to get his hip and thigh muscles as strong as possible to allow him to jump without problems... 
I'm so proud of him and I can already see a champion like his half brother Pancho :)

Training july 2012

We have 2 courses this week, one for avdanced dogs and the other for lower grade dogs. First we have Pancho and you will see that at jump 2 to 3 we had the possibility to handle those two jumps 2 ways, so we tried them both for you. You will also see the very good weave entrance from Pancho.
Then we had Pepito run the easier course for you, no options there just run as fast as you can really and he did great.
Both Pancho and Pepito weren't that fast as it was hot that evening around 27 degres...
Video of both courses, enjoy :)
