Not just those in the semi-finals, but every video submitted is fantastic. The 15 videos chosen are phenomenal and to be at the top of the list was quite an accomplishment. If you want to continue to be inspired go to YouTube and type in “Dog Agility with Handling360 is” and you will find a multitude of videos. But don’t leave yet… enjoy today’s 5 videos and vote for your two favourites. 

For those of you who have been asking…yes…we will open Handling360 up very soon!  If you are inspired to raise the level of success and fun in agility for you and your dog, be sure to fill in your name and email address in the registration box found at right of this blog to receive information about my upcoming free Handling360 video series.

Vote for your Favourites to go into our “Finale”

If you have just joined us, over the past couple of days we have been running the semi-final rounds of our H360 video contest. We asked our online students to send us videos showing stories of their journey through our agility handling class “Handling360″.  My team and I had the challenging task of choosing only 15 out of all the amazing entries for our semi-final rounds. We are asking you to narrow it down to just two of your favourites per day. That is no easy task I know! Be sure to check out Day One and Day Two and cast your vote. Today is the final day of narrowing down the videos… tomorrow we go to the championship round where the top two videos from each day will go head to head for some amazing prizes.

Check out the prizes!

    From one Baby Boomer to another!!!! HURRAH, Irene!!!! Thank you for the great inspiration to this contemporary of yours who was thinking…. fun to watch, but maybe too much to do, and then YOU COME ALONG!!!!

    And to all of the video makers and learners and sharers: the creative ideas about making equipment, using simple things, and just having FUN with your dogs are just what I needed!!

    Looking forward to my turn with H360 and…. uh OH … whippets!!!!

    Thank you ALL!! I’d love to vote for each and every one.

    How do you vote for just one?? And yeah, Irene? I want to be her- what an attitude, what spirit, what joy. And that’s the reoccurring theme I see in *all* these videos- the unadulterated joy that the ‘team’ is having… both handler AND dog. If that’s not wonderful, I don’t know what is. 🙂

    Irene, you are definitely an inspiration for me. I will be 76 this July and have every desire to do agility and that is my goal with my 7-1/2 month old Border Collie pup. Right now we are working on basic obedience and tug (she loves it) and doing quite well. She has very good eye contact too. She is VERY high drive and full of confidence. I want to thank you for your inspiration and Susan Garrett for her Say Yes an Handling 360 videos. She is too young to start with the big stuff but we are starting our ground work. Thanks again!!!

    I just love Irene. As a member of the baby boomers club I just love that she is able to show the younger crowd to never underestimate your elders.

    I LOVE, LOVE these success stories. My retirement is later this year – then I plan on having more time and get on board with 360… In the meantime, I am working hard with my new pup, not to make the same mistakes as I did with my first agility dog!
    Thank you for these posts!
