Says Amanda, "Our team started planning on qualifying our dogs for
Cynosport in February of 2017, as it isn't often that you can find three qualified
Beagles to be on a Dog Agility Masters team. We thought for several
months on a team name to follow in the footsteps of the two other prior teams
to attend Cynosport. We threw a few team names around, but on August 1st

for a second on the tough Jumpers layout and bought an off-course. Tracey
and four-year-old Codex or "Dex" had some stable runs too, but Standard
caught them with an elimination.
My teammates are wonderful competitive
people who run the top Beagles in their venues; plus we enjoy each others
company, like to have fun, and love our breed too. Alas, we were hoping
to make finals but the two eliminations put us out of the final show. We
thought we'd have been a helluva good "white dog" team to have run
relay! What an enjoyable experience. Look for more Beagles in the
