Elicia Calhoun and her five-year-old Border Collie, Tobie, live in Paradise Valley, Arizona, where Elicia is a full-time agility trainer and coach. She and Tobie will be presenting Team USA in the 26" jump height division.
Elicia has been competing for over 20 years and has been a top competitor both nationally and internationally for the majority of her career. Her goals for the event are to be on the podium and to have fun both on and off the course.
Tobie is a celebrity in her own right. Two years ago while traveling home from a trial, Elicia, Tobie and her five other dogs were involved in a horrific car crash. Tobie was lost in the desert after the crash for 24 hours. Tobie survived the crash and her night in the desert with just a few scratches.
