Former Syracuse-area veterinarian in agility finals at Westminster dog show
Dr. Liz Dole has a passion for Black Labs, and for agility classes, and the combination has paid off for her at Westminster's agility competitions in New York City this weekend. She may live in Virginia now, but the Cornell grad practiced at Mattydale Animal Hospital and then at Stack Veterinary Hospital on Onondaga Hill for many years.
Just getting to this level is a feat, but to do it with TWO contenders, amazing.
This morning, Liz and her dog Chelsea competed in the Master's Agility Challenge (20" high obstacles class). She placed 4th in one class, 5th in another---speed by both the human and dog are important! ( Her older Lab Lexie is being retired next month at age 11, and did not qualify for the finals)
Agility competitions are now done, with the breed shows starting Monday morning. We'll keep you up to date.
