And the winners are…..

Posted on 11/17/14 15 Comments

Have you ever watched “The Voice” or one of those other singing contest TV shows? My favourite part of the show is waiting to see if the person I voted for makes it to the next round…as the series continues, each week grows more and more exciting…it really draws me in. Then comes the finale…I admit part of me doesn’t think it’s quite fair… that even though each singer is utterly amazing, sadly there can only be one winner.


This video contest has been a little bit like that, except we have FIVE winners. The biggest difference between those singing shows and the journeys we have all watched with my students (well aside from the singing 🙂 ) is that each of our contestants really are winners! When you look at transformation each of them have had, and are continuing to have, you can see their agility career and even their life with their dog has been changed.

That is the REAL prize.

However, like  “The Voice”…we want to reward those that YOU have all voted as your favourites…so for those lucky three winners (and two randomly selected ones) we are going to give them an additional year of Handling360 AND their very own Fitbone balance disc from FitPAWS.

Before we announce our winners…I first want to give a shout out to those amazing people over at FitPAWS for being a part of our contest…don’t they totally ROCK?! If you haven’t done so yet, be sure you check out  all their great products on their website!


Today I am grateful for all of my students, both those who had the time to share their journeys with us in these amazing videos and those who prefer to keep their stories private (for now:)). We have the most amazing community of like minded dog loving people who make it a joy for me to do what I do each day. Today I honour each of you. Thank you for being a part of my life!

If you havent yet watched the videos from Day One, Day Two, Day Three, Day Four or The Season Finale…check them out! The votes were so close on the last day…only 10% difference was between first place and sixth place!

    It seems that all of these people have access to either large yards and fields or indoor agility facilities for their practice. How do people like me who have a pocket handkerchief of a yard mostly filled with plants (or at this moment snow) and no access to agility equipment that isn’t being used by trainers who want to teach agility ‘their own way’?

    BIG Congratulations to Tin, Lance, Charlotte and Paola and also every team that made it into the semi-finals, there were so many great videos!!

    It’s been refreshing and inspirational seeing all the dog and handler teams transform around me in Australia with the help from H360.

    Congratulations everyone! How exciting 🙂

    All the videos submitted have been so fun to watch and very inspiring. For me, H360 has been so much more than just learning great handling skills and I can see when watching these amazing stories that the same is true for others… so much emotion, joy & passion emanating from these videos.

    I think we all won when we signed up for H360.

    This has been a real life changing journey & one that I so look forward to continuing !

    Awesome video contest. The videos were all so amazing. I truly feel blessed to have been part of this group and wish you all the very best. On Friday when we were in 7th place I never thought we would come in in the top three, but I kept plugging our video and asking for votes. My thanks go out to the tremendous, supportive, and very large crowd of Texas Agility folks. They truly are the best. And of course to Susan and H360, our thanks for this awesome handling system.
