What do you enjoy most about agility? Spending time with my dogs
How would you describe your dog’s personality? When Nikki is working she is very focused, enthusiastic, strong-willed and loud! She, however, also has a softer side and can be very affectionate and cuddly.
*What is her quirkiest habit? Nikki steals socks and gently carries them with her around the house. She often raids the washing basket and even open drawers and cupboards to find them.
