Arya, also known as pickles, shmoo, puparya, and mamabear, is an all around fantastic sport dog and family pet. She has an incredibly sound temperament, a fantastic off switch, and a great work ethic. She is the kind of dog you can find snoozing on the couch all day but if you ask her to work, she'll be right at your side ready to go in a moment's notice. She is filled with love (and kisses) and gives her everything in anything we do together. Arya's quite a funny girl, and those who know her understand that she tries to always keep the mood light. She is an A+ comedian with her human impersonations.

Arya is one of those dogs that excels in everything she tries. She also absolutely adores herding, disc, dock diving, agility, and rally-o/obedience work. She placed 3rd in her very first disc competition at a year of age in Time Warp at an Up Dog Challenge trial. Since then, she's placed consistently at disc events throughout the northeast region. After only a few events, she was invited to UpDif 2020. During her first full season of dock diving through NADD, her PB thus far is 20'3" and growing. She recieved an invite to NADD Regionals/Nationals in 2020 for a high score in the junior division of AR, and for accomplishing an dock senior advanced title. At the 2020 North East NADD Regional Arya placed 3rd in the junior division for AR.

In 2021, Arya debuted in Scent Work gaining her Scent Work Novice overall title in 4 trials, with placements and Q's across the board. In 2022, at her first trialing weekend of the advanced divisions of containers & interiors, Arya achieved her SCA & SIA titles with placements. Arya also debuted in AKC agility fall of 2021, having earned solely 1st place placements for her Q's thus far!
