MICHELLE & ARYA

Michelle competes in a multitude of sports with her border collie Arya. For a list of titles visit Arya's Page

Expedition Reverie's Rebel of the North NA SWN RN DSA DJ AJ HDM DDB TKE VHMA

Michelle and Arya compete in scent work, agility, disc, dock diving, rally, and have completed all of the trick dog titles offered by both AKC and DMWYD. Arya was the first border collie to receive her Grand Champion Trick Dog Title through DMWYD.

 

They placed 3rd in their very first disc competition when Arya was a year of age at an Up Dog Challenge trial. Since then, they've placed consistently at disc events throughout the northeast region. After only a few disc events, they was invited to UpDog's National Disc Championship event, UpDif. During their first full season of dock diving through NADD, Arya got a PB (personal best) of 19'2". They received 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, they debuted in Scent Work and gained all of their Novice Scent Work titles, as well as Arya's Scent Work Novice overall title in 4 trials, with placements and Q's across the board. They debuted in AKC agility in the fall, and earned solely 1st place placements for their Q's thus far as well as Arya's Novice Agility title!
