Earl Tunnel

Lots to learn from today’s video. It is a glimpse into the agility journey of one of my Handling360 students. Although it is meant to be a “Handling360 success story” there are lessons to learn while you watch.  For some, it may be discovering that there is an actual breed of dog called an Entlebucher Mountain Dog :).
