Dogs- Height Dogs- In Training - Retired Dogs

Brynn Brynn
Border Collie, Female
Born: April 2005
Retired: October 2015
Owner: Jackie Droganes-Dobbie

Brynn managed to work her way into Jackie's home which surprised us all since she was not a Chihuahua and has given Jackie a "real" dog to play with as we liked to tease her about.


Bustin
Bustin
Border Collie, Female
Born: October 2003
Retired: August 2014
Owner: Aaron Robbins

Bustin is one of our utility dogs that has run in every position and by whoever is available to run her. Very reliable and consistent. She is another one of the NRG puppies. In her off time she does some TV and movie work.


Chance

Chance
Jack Russell, Male
Born: August 2006
Retired: May 2013
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Chance was about to be put to sleep when a friend asked Kelly to work with him for a few weeks as a last chance. He never left and had a very good career until he came down with vestibular disease and never made a full recovery.


Charge
Charge
Mix, Male
Born: October 2004
Retired: October 2015
Owner: Aaron Robbins

He is a interesting mix and came to us from Nevada. You can't miss him, a race/heat never starts on time because he will not let go of his tug and we all end up waiting for Aaron to wrestle it out of his mouth. Charge was on our 2011 CanAm Regular team that won the Championship.


Cowboy
Cowboy
Saluki, Female
Born: November 2004
Retired: January 2012
Owner: Christine Swan

One of the few Saluki to ever play flyball. Chris did an outstanding job with her and Cowboy never failed to amaze us while in the lanes. She was a bit of a princess and some times plays on her own terms but she sure looked great when she ran.


Elektra Elektra
Border Collie, Female
Born: October 2005
Retired: October 2014
Owner: Brittany Chase

Elektra moved herself onto the Blue team almost immediately and spent most of her career there. Meadow is her Mother. She has had a tough go with injuries the past few years and is slowly heading into early retirement but may make the rare appearance here and there when we need her.


Fidget Fidget
Mix, Female
Born: April 2001
Retired: January 2012 Owner: Angela Decker

Our little dog from the Reserve surprised everyone and had an outstanding career. Ran anchor on the Silver team for years and was the rock that held that team together. Very rarely did you ever see Fidget not run clean. Typical terrier, she is not happily retired and still thinks she should still be playing.


Flirt Flirt
Border Collie, Female
Born: December 2007
Retired: September 2016
Owner: Don Blewett

She fit in perfectly for our Silver team for many years. Liter mate to Urban. From the Second NRG/Orbit litter. Very easy going girl who just quietly goes about her business and is very solid. Very rarely did she not run clean.


Fusion Fusion
Border Collie, Male
Born: September 2004
Retired: August 2008
Owner: Sarah Mombrouquette

Fusion had so much promise and was well on his way to being a long time fixture on our A team but a bad injury early in his career cut his career way too short and we really do miss him. He is not too happy to be retired but has accepted it and just chills out at home. From the first NRG/Orbit litter.


Ghetto
Ghetto
Mix, Female
Born: December 2003
Retired: January 2013
Owner: Aaron Robbins

Litter mate to Drama. Has produced some great puppies and was greatly missed while on maternity leave because she was a very steady, quick dog who can be run by anybody. She may make the odd apperance every now and then to help us out when we need her.


Habit
Habit
Mix, Female
Born: September 2006
Retired : September 2016
Owner: Don Blewett

Habit was last pick of the litter and was everything you would not expect from the last pick of the litter. Her first tournament on the A team they ran 3 world records and she also was the height dog for our 14.931 team that made history with being the first NAFA team to run a 14 second time. Many more regular and multi world records as well as CanAm Championships were run with her as the height dog.


Holladay Holladay
Border Collie, Female
Born: October 2005
Retired: October 2014
Owner: Meg Reitsma

Holladay had a great career being one of our most steadiest dogs and helped many teams set their new best times.


Hoochie
Hoochie
Mix, Female
Born: April 2003
Retired: October 2014
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Hoochie was the height dog on our A team for pretty much her whole career. She has excelled right from day 1 and moved up to the A team immediately. Once she stepped down from the A team she made a very quick impact on our Multi team and helped them repeat and win the 2011 CanAm Multi Championship. Her last tournament was CanAm 2014.

Whippet, Male
Born: October 2006
Retired: October 2015
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Ran as our start dog on the A team and Multi team for a few years. Typical whippet, loves his Mom and won't run for anyone else if she is around.


Jackie

Jackie
JRT, Female
Born: July 2007
Retired: January 2013
Owner: Liz Hawkrigg

Typical Jack and some runs were rather interesting especially if Nancy or any family members were around. She entertained us many times and all we could do was laugh. Her and Liz learned to sport together.


Jamone
Jamone
Whippet, Male
Born: September 2005
Retired: February 2012
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Jamone's career came to a scary halt at practice one Sunday afternoon when he ruptured a disc in his back and had a stroke in the middle of his run. He came to us from Oberon Whippets and ran on our Multi team as well as backed up the A team. Jamone was on our 2010 and 2011 CanAm Multi team that won the Championships as well as the 15.30 multi team. His spot will be a very tough one to fill now that he can no longer race. He will be spending the rest of his days just chilling out on his sofa at home.


Meadow
Meadow
Border Collie, Female
Born: September 2004
Retired: October 2015
Owner: Aaron Robbins

From the first NRG/Orbit breeding, she excelled right from day one and more then exceeded expectations. Her puppies have just been absolutely amazing and we could not be happier with them. She was on the 2010 Can Am Multi team that won the Championship.


Meg Meg
Border Collie, Female
Born: June 2002
Retired: January 2012
Owner: Don Blewett

Meg was one of those dogs you never really noticed since she was about as rock solid as they come. We usually took her from granted since we could put her anywhere with anyone running into her and she did not care. Meg was also an awesome Disc dog and won international competitions.


Motive
Motive
Border Collie, Female
Born: November 2003
Retired: October 2015
Owner: Ron Gosciminski

Daughter of Alibi, this flashy border collie has done a great job on our Rumors team. One of our awesome dogs that ran for the kids. Ron's daughter Ashley ran her for most of her career.


Nancy
Nancy
JRT, Female
Born: September 2006
Retired: April 2016
Owner: Liz Ross

A typical JRT that entertained us all during her training. It was worth it and she has become a very solid and reliable dog for many years.


Ollie Ollie
Mix, Male
Born: July 2009
Retired: October 2014
Owner: Peter Dobbie

Litter mate to Fame. Pete and Ollie learned the sport together and did an awesome job. Ollie loved to let us all know when we were forgetting to take him when we went to race our other teams with his very distinct bark/singing that the whole venue can hear.


Peanut Peanut
Chihuahua, Female
Born: October 2005
Retired: October 2014
Owner: Jackie Droganes-Dobbie

Yes that's right, we had a Chihuahua on the team and not just any Chihuahua, it is Peanut the wonder dog...lol! We were very excited to get her into the line up and watch her burn up the mats.


Slander
Slander
Malinois, Female
Born: April 2001
Retired: October 2009
Owner: Aaron Robbins

Slander had a great career and filled in the Multi team after Sabre left us. To run Slander in her prime you had to wear a body suit because she hit you like a ton of bricks on the way back and would grab whatever she could to tug on.


Swift
Swift
Border Collie, Male
Born: October 2007
Retired: August 2014
Owner: Meg Robinson

Unfortunately a injury shortened Swift career. Do not let his small structure fool you, this boy was quick. A very valuable dog who ran in any position on any team.


Taz Tazmanian Devil
Chihuahua, Male
Born: May 2007
Retired: October 2015
Owner: Jackie Droganes-Dobbie

The wild child who's name is very appropriate to his outlook on life. Don't let the fact that he is a Chihuahua fool you, this little guy can hold his own against all tiny height dogs and amazed people with the times he takes off the clock.


Tetris
Tetris
Border Collie, Female
Born: October 2003
Retired: December 2011
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Tetris ran on our "A" team for years. She ran anchor and the further behind she was the better she ran, she won us countless heats due to her awesome times. She is a very easy going dog with an awesome temperament which she has passed on to all her puppies.


Wren Wren
Border Collie, Female
Born: December 2003
Retired: January 2012
Owner: Don Blewett

Wren was one of those dogs that looked like there was nothing there until she was released and you seen her times on the clock. Despite her small size she was really quick and ran most of her career on our Blue team. A little bit of a princess and had Don wanting to pull out his hair sometimes when it came to trying to keep her in shape, she did not want to do anything but yet some how still ran very well at flyball. One of those natural dogs that would run well no matter what its owners did.


Zephyr Zephyr
Border Collie, Male
Born: June 2006
Retired: May 2016
Owner: Caroline Quinlan

Zephyr was one of our utility dogs that ran on any team, any height and in any position. Another one of those dogs that will grab anything so you want to make sure he gets his tug toy and not something else. Alamo is his Father.
