Episode 216: The 2019 AKC National Agility Championship Wrap-Up

In this episode (1:12:03)

In this episode, the 2019 AKC 20″ National Agility Champion Sarah Baker teams up with Jennifer and Esteban to bring you the wrap up for nationals!

Special Note: In pulling the results from past years and identifying handlers with 3 or more NAC wins, I missed the fact that Andrea Samuals’s 2019 8″ win with papillon Gabby is her 3rd NAC with 3 different dogs; Gabby (2019), Carly (2012), and Sparkle (2011). –Sarah
