Update on the Flying Shih Tzu

A couple months ago we featured the Shih Tzu in a breed profile, and showcased Teddy, who belongs to Cal and Crystal West of Selah, Washington.
Crystal sent us this recent picture of Teddy coming off a teeter in an agility trial. Teddy is now rated the fifth highest Shih Tzu in agility in the entire country. If Crystal and Teddy can maintain that status, they will be going to the highly prestigious and televised AKC Agility Invitational in December!

Prior to taking their first two Shih Tzu through training with me about five years ago, the Wests had absolutely no experience in dog training or competition. Now their lives literally revolve around the sport of dog agility, with at least four of their dogs competing all over the Northwest.
