We’ve hit the ground running this summer, and it’s still early!
Our first news to share is that Swift earned her BCAT title! BCAT is the first level title for Fast CAT (lure coursing). Swift debuted in FAST Cat earlier this year at the Piedmont Kennel Club, raced again in Williamsburg, VA, and then earned her first title at her third event in King, NC.
The girls have had a blast dock diving this year, as well. We welcomed Swift’s mother, Sas, to the family a few months ago. Sas loves dock diving, and earned her Dock Master title within two events. Swift has set a new personal best already this season, jumping 16’9” at Teamworks in Youngsville, NC. Both Swift and Sas have earned invitations to the 2021 NADD Regional Championships.
For herding news, we are working hard on new skills. Swift earned two started level herding titles through the American Herding Breed Association last November, shortly before her first birthday. She’s currently the youngest Mudi in the U.S. to achieve started herding titles on sheep! We do not plan to trial again until this fall.
Stay tuned for more exciting news a little later this summer!
