Ja wohl! Hitchcock the Scottie makes it to international agility competition representing Switzerland

Athletic and privileged Swiss Scottish Terrier Hitchcock, whose talent has been showcased on the Scottie News before, will be competing for Switzerland in the European Open in July.

He is the first Scottish Terrier ever to represent his country in an international competition. According to the Zuercher Unterlaender newspaper, Scotties’ short legs make it as hard for them to beat other breeds at agility contests as it is for a plowhorse to win a horse race. Hitch’s owner and coach Bettina Stemmler says, however, “Hitch is an exceptional dog who loves to compete.” Even if winning this and other competitions would be difficult, above all, she just wants to have fun.

Rest assured the Scottish Terrier and Dog News will be cheering for you.

  1. He's wonderful and so fast, but flippen-heck his owner is fast too! Oh I tried with Kirk, we went from puppy training straight into the agility lessons … no interest, no sense of direction, no energy (and Kirk had similar problems as well.)

  2. I thought Ceilidh might be good for agility, but the only time we tried a bit at a demo session I suspected she might be way too scatty for it.
