Finally the 2007 year end AKC agility stats have been published and I'm so thrilled to brag that my brindlewonderkid, DIGITAL, finished up the year as the breed's #1 agility basenji. What's even more special is that he just turned 11, so his 2007 season was as a 10 year old. The last time he was #1 was in 2002 and he's been in the top 3 every year since. He's also our breed's only Dual Champion with master level agility titles. Truely a do-it-all dog. I'm so proud of my "old" man. I love him to pieces. He's my first competition dog and we've done and titled in: conformation, agility, coursing, rally, therapy work. We'll keep competing as long as he enjoys himself.
My daughter shows in agility in the midwest but not with basenji's. I know how much work and training goes into agility . I know how much she does. I get reports on the "grandkids" after every show. She always tells me if there is a basenji there and how they did. She thinks it would be a great challenge to train a basenji in agility but then she would have to live with one and that thought she can't handle. No hounds in her vocabulary. Ha Ha! When I go to visit my daughter I make sure she is showing so I can go and watch. It is great fun She is showing both of hers in excellence . Kudos to you and your dog.
