|Dandy is a very talented dog who excels in Agility as
well as Flyball. He is extremely athletic, responsive &
biddable. He is ambitious & driven, but has a good
sense of self-preservation. With a soft nature that is
balanced with resilience, focus and a desire to
please, he is an absolute joy to train.
Like his father Token, Dandy is an outstanding, stable
companion who loves people, is good with children,
loves to work & play, and has no phobias over noise
In May 2012, Dandy was a "Loaner Dog" for Team
Australia, competing at the 2012 IFCS World Agility
Championship in Fort Worth, TX. Dandy & his handler
Natalie Kirkwood had a very successful competition,
finishing in 4th place in the Individual All-Around.
Natalie developed a wonderful relationship with
Dandy in a matter of days that resulted in great
teamwork. Read the full story HERE on my blog.
In April 2013, Natalie came to the USA again and ran
Dandy at the IFCS Continental Championship of the
Americas in Fort Worth, Texas, where they won a
Bronze Medal in Biathlon.
In April/May 2014, Dandy & I flew to Europe where
Natalie ran Dandy in both the IFCS World Agility
Championship in The Netherlands AND the World
Agility Open in Lignano, Italy. They were in the top
25% in all events, a fantastic result overall. Dandy was
a great travel companion spending 3 1/2 weeks in
Europe, including planes, trains and a Gondola! He
handled it all like a pro! The adventure of a lifetime!
