|Tracy and her seven-year-old Border Collie, Bam, are part of Team USA's maxi division team at the CCOE. Tracy and Bam live in Hidden Hills, California. Tracy has been doing agility for 20 years. In her non-dog life, Tracy is a periodontist. We asked Tracy a few questions about her experiences in agility and her plans for the upcoming event.|
What (if anything) are you doing to prepare for the CCOE event?
Practicing gamble and snooker skills.
How did you feel when you found out that you made the team?
Really excited and lucky.
What strengths do you think you and your dogs bring to the team (particularly on international courses)?
Have you competed internationally before?
Yes I have competed with my dogs (Blew/Blink/Bam) at the European open in Italy/Germany/Czech Republic/Sweden.
Are you bringing anyone with you to cheer on Team USA?
Are you planning to do any sightseeing or other activities while you are in Europe for the event?
Any other comments?
A great team and a great team manager. Andy Hartman has been very welcoming and up beat. Thank you, USDAA.
