Competitors had great weather and fun challenges at this trial! By Valori Duff.
Mother Nature smiled on the ARFF (Agility is Really Fun with Fido) club and its competitors this past weekend in Westford, Massachusetts. The weather could not have been more perfect! The judges, Janet Gaunt and Seth Dunn, offered fun-yet-challenging courses. Janet even gave the competitors a ten minute walk through for Grand Prix because of its challenges! The competitors ran that challenging course with glee, cheering each other on.
