Banjo is the newest addition to the pelletier family. She has been running flyball for a year now and has been burning up the flyball lanes ever since. She has quickly become one the club's fastest dogs and had already been timed in 4.1 seconds. She has been a great addition to the team.

Jessie

Breed: Border Collie Mix
Titles:
FD, FDX, FDCh
Accomplishments:

  • FastAntics high jump record holder at 48 inches.

Jessie is a rescue dog and started doing both flyball and agility in 1995. She loves tennis balls, and has earned her FDCh with mostly 5 point runs. She is now retired from the racing lanes, but still enjoys running flyball at practice. Jessie struts her stuff at our demos and is still a challenge to beat when the dogs are high jumping.

Mandy

Breed: Border Collie
Titles:
FD, FDX, FDCh, FM, FMX, FMCh, ONYX, FGDCh (30K)
Accomplishments:

  • #2 Point earner in Region 12 for the 2002 NAFA season.

  • #42 Point earner in NAFA for the 2002 season, all breeds.

Mandy is first a flyball dog. When you get her on the racing lanes, she is very hard to hold back, her reward is a tug rope, and she will pull your arm off if you let her. She feeds off of the excitement in the rink and tries to outrun the other dogs. It's all in the competition for her, because if there are no dogs running, she won't run either. On the agility course, she is very comfortable with all of the equipment and rushes through everything. Mandy does have her calm moments, and is a pioneer of the pet therapy program at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital. She loves the attention she gets from the patients and can't wait to go up for her visits.
