Today is bittersweet. The last group of new videos to vote on are below…exciting to see more stories unfold, but sad that the flow of amazing videos is coming to an end.
What a whirlwind the last few days have been! I have enjoyed reading all your comments both on the blog and on Facebook, looking forward to reading what you think about today’s videos. We have more than one grandmother in the line up today proving success can come at any age! Seeing a journey like those reminds me how incredibly blessed I am to be able to witness these transformations and share them with you!
In case your just joining us…we ran a contest for our Handling360 students to submit a video and show us how their agility lives have changed since starting our course. We received far more than we ever imagined! Not only did we see journeys, we saw true transformations in not only dog agility, but in search and rescue, injury rehabilitation and all sorts of other dog sports. Amazing doesn’t even scratch the surface for describing these videos.
After viewing over 100 videos it became painfully obvious that there was no way we could narrow it down to only 15…so we settled on 24…then 25, and now we called on each of you to help us pick the best of the best. It’s not easy, but we sure appreciate all the help! If you haven’t yet had the chance to view Day One, Day Two or Day Three…go check them out! *Editors note: Click this link to see who made the final round of voting!
Today is it…voting will close tomorrow morning…at 10:00 AM Toronto time…weird time I know. But since today’s batch of videos has a BUNCH of Aussie dog and handler teams, I thought it only fair that we give everyone at least 24 hours to hustle up votes for their videos. 🙂 We will gather the top two winners from each day, and they will go head to head for the Grand Prize. The top three winners will receive an additional year of Handling360 AND the great people at FitPaws have donated a FitBone to each winner as well as the 2 randomly selected!
It really is a shame we couldn’t have put ALL of the videos up on my blog because we have had some incredible ones that missed this week of voting…however in the end everyone is a winner really as evident by these amazing transformations.
One more quick thing before we get started .Many of you have been asking if we will open up Handling360…the answer is YES! Head over to www.handling360.com to sign up for updates so you can be one of the first to know when we open up the course later this month.
OK, now the final SEVEN videos we have for your are below for you to enjoy! Let us know what you think of the videos so far.
Today I am grateful for the unseasonable beautiful weather we have had here this past week…teeshirts in November in Canada…not something you save very often!

I’m new to Susan’s training and currently going through and loving her recallers program. My dog has lots of energy and I thought agility might be a good channel for that energy. I set up a couple of jumps this summer, but of course I didn’t really know what I was doing so neither myself or my dog got hooked.
It is so fun watching these videos that it gives me inspriration to try it for real. It’s encouraging to see older women involved as well. I like to be active, but I’m on the older side of young (actually probably closer to the younger side of old). Becuase of the season of life I am in, I wondered if this was really a younger women’s sport….but I think I should rethink that.
At any rate thanks to all who participated and entered a video…job well done.
really impressive what the collies can be trained to do.
It’s been REALLY hard to decide these past 4 days. Loved all the videos! 🙂
What an incredible group of videos! Such wonderful stories, I couldn’t wait to get home each day to see the next group! (after walking the dogs, of course!) They have me believing that maybe even I could try agility…
This has been so much fun ! and so inspiring – I especially love the videos with rescue dogs , I have a very “soft” rescue dog who is very easily overwhelmed. We also want to Say Yes to H360 !! Can we join the fun ?!
I enjoyed all of the videos some were very clever & others were heart felt accomplishments using H360. Unfortunately, all of these people can move so I find it hard to relate to them except Irene K. who is still younger than me.
Lukla is one happy dog! I loved the JOY in Video #1; All videos were super!!!
Just wanted to say I’ve loved watching all the videos this week.
Everyone should be so proud of their progress. Every one a superstar!
Aargh! I was going to post a message to complain about only being able to vote for two, but when I finished, I found that I couldn’t vote for any! I’ve refreshed the page a few times, but still no luck–I see the current voting but have no option to vote myself.
And just as happened to someone yesterday or the day before, as soon as I sent in the message, the voting became available.
These moments watching the videos have been ones of sheer pleasure, inspiration, and appreciation of the sheer genius of this community of people and dogs. An added bonus was finding lots of new music to adore. Thank you from the depths of my heart!
Agree with every part of your comment Carrie…even the music LOVE!
It was a real pleasure to watch all these wonderful video this week… and it was easy to wake up for see who were the lucky one…to be part of the top 27!!! So best luck to you all … Thank you to Say Yes for this, this give me the motivation to continue!!!!
