Seventh Place Team

Sport Dogs Jalisco in Guadalajara, Mexico posted the lowest score in July. To be fair, Sports Dogs had a difficult month logistically Nohemi Ramos, one of the team captains, writes: “July and August are summer vacations and people take time off to travel or be with visiting family.  It is also rainy season, fields get muddy, roads get pot holes and so some people just prefer not to run under these conditions.”

The top scoring dog for Sport Dogs Jalisco was Cody, a Bichon handled by Maria Elena Perez. Cody and Maria Elena finished the course with 10 faults in 73.65 seconds:

This club runs all four of the NDAL leagues. The day they ran the 60×90 must have been a very tough day logistically, as they barely put together a full team.
