Name: Daisy
Handler: Jessica Vallely
Titles Earned: NW1, NW2, L1I, L1C, L1V

Daisy was Jessica’s introduction to dog sports. They were one of Agile Paws earliest agility students and then began taking nose work classes when Tammy started offering them. Even though Daisy had a broken, twisted leg due to abuse, it never stopped her from putting her all into competing.  At 13 years old, Daisy was the first Agile Paws Dog Sports student to earn an NW1 as well as the first to earn an NW2 when she was 14 years old. Unfortunately Daisy was a senior when she started classes and was unable to compete in NW3, where she no doubt would have done well if age hadn’t caught up with her. Anise was her favorite odor and Containers her favorite element.

Daisy was always the perfect demo dog and really shined when we worked with the special education students. Knowing just what they needed, she was always the star.
