DKAGCH DKSPCH SAG(hopp)CH Shetla's Emsi at Equinox - Emsi


Emsi is hard to describe in any specific way, because her personality varies greatly depending on the situation. That is why she can be both very annoying and oh so loveable.

The gentle Emsi: is when she wants to be petted and scratched and snuggles up beside us.
The stressed Emsi: is when we come home or the dogs are being feed and she jumps frantically straight up and down while barking.
The child loving Emsi: she loves kids, especially Nicolai.
The quiet Emsi: When we are visiting she normally lies down close by, in a position where she can keep an eye on us - probably so that we will not leave without her. You rarely notice that she is present.
Emsi the work-aholic: Last, but not least; Emsi loves agility and when Jesper trains or is running at a competition with her, she is always 100% focused.

Emsi had her debut in agility competitions May 2007, where most competitions were DcH trials (one of the two major organisors of agility in Denmark - the Danish Kennel Klub being the other). In DcH she advanced all the way to class 3 and qualified for DcH's national championship. Here she ran two nice runs (2nd and 3rd places), however the third was a disqualification (mostly due to a handling error), which in total of course amounts to nothing special.
Emsi also had her share of DKK competitions, where she advance to class 2 and qualified for the official National Championships. This championship is "only" two trials, one jump and one agility (combined). Emsi had two really good runs, except for the small detail of jumping through the frame of the tire jump in the jumping trial.
In all her trials in 2007 Emsi ran clean runs in more than 50% and she won more that 1/3 of all her trials.

Emsi won the title danish jumping champion (DKSPCH) in 2008, during the entire season more than half her starts resulted in clean runs and she won 4 out of 10 runs!

In the fall of 2008, October 13th, Emsi had her first litter. This was also the first litter for our kennel. The entire story about Emsi's E-litter can be read here.

Emsi won the title Danish Agility Champion (DKAGCH) on June 21st 2009 in Hillerød. The three result required for the title was won within a period of just 7 weeks, after she had been in agility grade 3 for almost 12 months! Although she did have a break from agility for about 4 months when she had her E-litter.

2009 was the first year with the new "Open Danish Championships" in agility. The competition was held in Pjedsted, just north of Fredericia. Emsi was placed third in jumping and first in agility - giving the the overall win and the title Danish Champion 2009!
The Danish Championship was also the last result needed to secure the title "Agility Sheltie 2009" (small), which is awarded by the Danish Shetland Sheepdog Club.

Emsi qualified for the FCI Agility World Championships in Dornbirn Austria.
