Chloe

Jasper’s Sunshine and Clover aka Chloe

Titles:   

Breed:  Welsh Corgi Pembroke

First Flyball Title:

Birthdate:  September 19, 2016

Handler:  Sandy Peace and Glen Christensen

 

Bio: 

Chloe is a busy, enthusiastic and independent girl.  She was bred through Crown Corgi (now in Oregon) and came to us demonstrating drive and energy.  She loves to run, jump, play ball, hike and feels her calling in life is to remove all lizards from our yard.  She has all the skills for flyball but her herding instincts are strong.  Those instincts have helped our teammates and team leaders develop their skills teaching her that returning to her handler is more fun than chasing another dog.  She has no ill will and feels it is her duty to protect all the dogs on her team from any outsiders (unless, of course, they join the team).

Dodge

Titles:   

Breed:  Welsh Corgi Pembroke

First Flyball Title:

Handler: Jessica Jones

 

Bio: 

We adopted Dodge at 5 years old after we met him at – of all places – a Flyball demo the team was doing at Relay For Life. We weren’t looking for a second dog but I was instantly smitten by the smiling corgi in the “Adopt Me” vest. The rest is history!

 To meet Dodge is to love him. He LOVES people and will literally sit on your feet to get you to pet him. He’s also a klutz. He made himself a bit infamous at the first Flyball tournament he attended by knocking over the light tree… Dodge is getting his start at Flyball a bit later in life but is making great progress. I’m confident he’ll be racing – preferably without trashing the place – in the not-too-distant future!

Echo

Titles:  
Breed:  Australian Cattle Dog
First Flyball Title:
Handler: Becky Lang

 

Bio:  
Echo is a 4 year old blue Australian Cattle Dog adopted from a nearby ranch in 2016. She is a newbie to Flyball. The running, balls and jumping come naturally, so conquering the box part of the training will put Flyball together for her. Echo will run a pre-flight in April. Echo never met a ball or disk she didn’t love and the folks who throw them for her become friends.

Halo

Titles: 

Breed:  Miniature Australian Shepherd

First Flyball Title:

Birthdate:  06/26/19

Handler: Karen Brandon

 

Bio: 

Halo is a North American Shepherd or Miniature Australian Shepherd from Patchwork Farms.  She is the legacy to Riley, who is one of the founding dogs of this team.  She is starting her puppy flyball training and just like Riley, she loves her ball and also tug.  She has spunk, drive and sass and we think we will be a fun little competitor and much needed height dog for SD Flyball in the future.

Bio: 

Two-year old Rylee has been honing her ball handling abilities her whole life, and began training with SD Flyball training January 2018.

When it comes to ball chasing, Rylee has no off button!

Sandi

Titles:   

Breed:  Mix

First Flyball Title:

Handler:  Eyah Swambat

 

Bio: 

Sandi was rescued from the San Diego central shelter in June 2015.  Her DNA test results say she is a Beagle, mixed with lots of everything else.  I wanted a companion that had energy to keep up with me hiking, but Sandi had more energy than I knew what to do with.  We finally discovered flyball in March 2019, so we got a late start.  Sandi’s greatest loves are soccer balls, young kids (the younger the better), treats, and picnic tables, in that order.  Oh yeah, she also has trouble holding her licker.

Bio: 

Sundae was rescued from Tennessee and was adopted by Jamie and Amanda in April 2018. In January 2019, Jamie and Amanda moved to San Diego and Sundae fell in love with the beach life. After a friend noticed Sundae’s obsession with playing fetch at the beach and recommended looking into flyball, Sundae started flyball training in August 2019. Sundae’s favorite toy is her beloved duck, although there is nothing that she loves more than a squeaky tennis ball.

Tiki

Titles:   

Breed:  Pembroke Welsh Corgi

First Flyball Title:

Handler: Desiree Szatkowski

 

Bio: 

Tiki is a tri-color Pembroke Welsh Corgi from Illinois.  She is our first corgi and is a bundle of energy. She is very stubborn and doesn’t always want to focus, but she loves running and practicing recall. She is getting used to bringing the ball to us instead of running away but she is getting better one step at a time! She is so smart and loving and we can’t wait for her to start running with the team one day!
