Agile Paws Dog Sports is proud to showcase the APDS full time students that have earned NACSW™ K9 Nose Work® titles. We acknowledge that many of our teams have earned accomplishments in other organizations and we are proud of them as well. However, it is our decision to focus and highlight NACSW™ milestones.
Buddy was a rescue from our local shelter. Always a quiet and shy little guy, finding the right sport for him was challenging. This sight hound wasn’t interested in luring and agility was a little scary. Nosework has helped Buddy become more independent and he loves the game. Buddy and Jennifer earned their L1C and L1V titles in November of 2019. They earned their NW1 level in Tuscon in January 2020.
Smokey is miracle dog. She survived several surgeries and a stroke in late 2019. From not being able to walk or see, Smokey is now walking tall and is eager to do nose work. Age 11, Smokey just passed her first ORT in January 2020. She will now be competing at the NW1 level.
Tilly is a rescue who is 11 years old. Tilly began nose work at age 10. She is a sweet girl who is beginning to gain confidence in her searches. Tilly has worked hard overcoming her fear of new areas. In January 2020, she earned her first EST title for exteriors. She is currently working at the NW1 level.
Rusty was rescued by Marsha when he was four years old. He loves camping, hiking and cuddles. He always needs a blanket to keep warm or he will keep you up at night. He is currently competing at the NW2 level.
Name: Marley Handler: Rick Subriar Titles Earned: NW1, L1C
Marley, therapy dog, is a sweet and loving girl, who prefers to be rewarded with hugs and praise over treats…though she will always take the treat. She is a happy go lucky dog that brings smiles where ever she goes. Marley earned her NW1 and L1C in 2018. Currently Marley is working on her NW2 title. In April she competed in a NW2 trial and although she didn’t title, she and Rick earned a third place ribbon for the third fastest interior time. Way to go!!!
Name: Fifi Handler: Luana Ball Titles Earned: L1C, L1E, NW1 and Harry Award
Fifi, or “Miss Fifi” as she prefers to be called, earned her NW1 at the end 2019 and also earned the Harry Award. Fifi was a stray that was dropped off at Luana’s vet office. Even though she has a damaged leg due to past abuse, she is always happy and eager to search. She is competing at the NW2 level. Fifi is a super sniffer!
Name: Gracie Handler: Marion Preest Titles Earned: L1C, L1I, NW1
Gracie is an energetic girl who loves to search. She is a leaner and a lover. She is a number 1 bed hogger and a real snuggler.

Brooklyn, aka, “Wild Child”, was a rescue from Arizona. She is a labrador-shepherd-border collie mix with no off-button. Always joyful, she loves to give kisses to spectators and judges while she is trialing. In class, she loves on all handlers and occasionally will steal bait bags as she smothers you with kisses. Brooklyn earned her NW1 in Murrieta, CA March 2019. She also earned her L1I at the March 2019 Agile Paws Dog Sports EST trials. She is competing at the NW2 level.
She is currently learning to become a demo dog for our community events.
Sweet Lucy is a rescue. After rehabing from extensive knee surgery, Lucy bounced back quickly into searching. Lucy got into the Agile Paws Dog Sports April 2019 trial at the last minute…literally 1/2 hour before the trial began and earned her NW1. What a rock star! On to NW2!
