Dogged Determination

I had the pleasure of talking to Tiffany Schmitcke recently and found out that after nearly 8 years of training and 6 years of competing in dog agility trials, Tiffany and her Wirehaired Pointing Griffon named Barrett, succeeded in earning their Master Agility Championship (MACH) title at the AKC Agility Trials in Santa Rosa.  Barrett, a nearly 9-year-old Wirehaired Pointing Griffon (WPG), is the third WPG in the country to reach this AKC title.

 

She didn’t ever plan on doing agility, but fell into it out of desperation to keep a young, driven dog busy and too tired to get into mischief.  Tiffany and Barrett are currently ranked as the # 2 WPG competing in agility and have even been invited several times to compete in the AKC Agility Invitational in Florida.  “It’s been such a long journey, and quite a struggle at times but also so much fun!” said Tiffany, Manager of Admissions and Records department.

 

Congratulations to Tiffany and Barrett!  Their achievement required an incredible amount of teamwork, patience and humility.  It is a very popular sport across the nation, in the Eureka area, and at CR.  I don’t know if you knew, but there are several current and former CR employees who train and compete in agility including Sue Alton, Trish Blair, Kevin Crotty and Lorie Walsh.
