We started at USAgility in January 1999. I must admit that it was through Sandy Crook and her training that Nala and I have achieved such great success. Sandy's weekly courses are challenging. Sandy also instills a "you can do it" attitude!
NADAC NATIONALS 2001— earned 3rd place in the 24" division at the NADAC nationals in Mankato, MN. She also recently received the merit award of "#1 Agility Dog" from ASCA for 1999.
In August 2001, Nala was invited to participate in the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge in San Francisco, on August 18. Naturally Dan accepted, and Dan and Nala won third place! "Incredible Dog!!" She and Dan were on TV in September! A Star is Born...
NADAC NATIONALS 2002 Update! "Nala is the NADAC Grand Champion 2002 in the 20+ class. Nala and I completed at the NADAC National in Mandato, Minnesota September 26-28, 2002. Nala was both accurate enough and fast enough to beat some pretty awesome dogs — I'm so proud of her! Thanks to you and everyone associated with our agility quest."
More 2003 Updates — Nala recently earned an AKC MACH title! She is now an Agility Triple Champion, having earned the agility champion title in AKC, USDAA and NADAC/ASCA!

Nala's recent MACH is a milestone that we could not have achieved without you! — Dan & Nala Roy
