Arya x Jagger (2022)




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 was 20'3". 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 as well as her NA title!

2022 was dedicated to Arya's first litter, The National Parks Litter, which you can learn more about by clicking that link! She was an absolutely phenomenal mother for the entirety of the 9 weeks they were here with us. She took care of them beautifully and taught them all wonderful social skills.

2023 was a return back to dog sports, with our focus being scent work and dock diving for the year! In scent work, Arya completed her scent work advanced overall title SWA with her SBA and SEA titles, as well as her SCAE and SIAE titles! She additionally got her first two titles in the excellent level, with her SCE and SBE titles. Next year we will be debuting in both NACSW as well as CPE CSS!

2023 was Arya's best year yet for dock diving, and it was only her second true season competing (took off in 2021 and 2022). In addition to a PB distance jump of 20'9", She received numerous titles this season, including her DSX, DM, and AS titles. At the NorthEast NADD Regionals she was the Reserve Champion in both the Senior DJ Division (with a jump of 20'3") and the Junior AR Division (with a grab of 14'). At the NADD Nationals in Springfield, MO, Arya was a Finalist (top 15) for the AR Junior Division! For her achievements, we have invites to next years NADD Regionals in both distance and air retrieve.

Next year, I hope to continue to focus on scent work as our main sport, as well as continue to compete in dock diving and disc. I also am excited to re-debut back in agility with her!
