At one of the last two Regionals of this competition year, Mexico offers some great performances on the course.
The 2011 Mexico Regional took place September 3-4, 2011 in Aguascalientes, Mexico. Frank Holik judged all the tournament classes and Francisco Berjon handled the titling classes.
Judge Holik enjoyed his experiences in Mexico. He says:
"I have been fortunate to have judged in Mexico for three years now and each time I go I have noticed a marked improvement not only in the speed and consistency of the dogs, but also the quality of the handling.
One of the nicest things to see is that there are always new faces competing with new dogs, which tells me they are doing a great job in promoting the sport of dog agility throughout the country. While the level of competition is high, overall there is a very laid back feel to their trials and everyone is there not only to compete but also to have fun. The trials have always been run efficiently in every aspect from the score table, to the ring crew, on to those that load and unload the equipment. I very much look forward to returning to Mexico soon."

Congratulations to all the winners!
