First Flyball Title: 2014
Handler: Rebecca Aiken
My name is Kiyah and I am an Australian Cattle Dog/Terrier mix. My Mom, Rebecca, adopted me from a rescue group in San Diego in June of 2014. They said I was about 1, but my vet said I was a little older, so my birthday is now January 13, 2013. I love people and almost always give everyone a big hug when I meet them if my mom lets me. I also love dogs and enjoy wrestling with a few of my favorite friends. I didn’t have any training when I was adopted, but I have worked hard and I am very good at all the basics like sit and stay, but my favorite thing to do is fetch, I am very good at it and had no instruction at all!
I started learning flyball almost as soon as I was adopted and I turned out to be a natural. I learned to run over the jumps and hit the box to get the ball very quickly. I love lining up and getting to go again and again to get the ball. I would do it all day if I could!
I entered my first tournament in September 2014 and ran singles. I ran fast and didn’t make any errors even with a very sore toe. In October 2014 at Dogtoberfest I ran singles, pairs and part-time on a team. I did great and earned my first two titles thanks to my very fast teammates! I have continued to run great on any team I am on. I can run anywhere in a lineup and will run for anyone who handles me, because sometimes Kendyll and I run on the same team, so mom has to run her. I run consistent times and hardly ever make a mistake (unless I feel the jumps are too high…hehe). I even improved my singles times in May of 2016, I was so fast I even surprised my mom with my times. I hope to continue to run clean, get faster and earn more titles just like my big sister. I am looking forward to many years of flyball.
Besides flyball, I am now a Certified Therapy Dog and I enjoy saying hi to people and making them feel better. I also love to Dock Dive and competed a few times, it is fun cause it involves my favorite thing…a ball. I love Fiesta Island where I run, swim and chase any balls that I see. I also like to hike with my family and friends. At home I am pretty chill, I like to hang out on the couch or in a comfy bed. I don’t mind being home as long as I have Kendyll or another dog buddy around to keep me company.
