I couldn’t feel luckier to have this sweet girl by my side. She has been a rock solid pup and teammate, crushing every challenge and new thing thrown at her since she’s was little! She quickly became a disc star, winning comps in high divisions and stiff competition since she was 9 months old. 


Now that she is 18 months, she has begun competing in freestyle and is doing incredible, and already qualified for 2 world finals at 13 months old. 


Aside from her athleticism, she is the sweetest most loving girl. Adores all the hugs and kisses you can afford, and wins over everyone she meets. She’s even tempered, confident, and just everything I asked for. I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in the future as we venture more into agility and dock diving as well as continuing her killer disc career! I love my Early girl 💜 - Paige Hoelscher
