Lifestyles of rich and famous Scottish Terriers cont’d

Earlier this week, the Scottish Terrier News featured exclusive video of two Scotties living the high life in Brazil. This weekend, we travel to the Swiss Alps where the celebrated Scottie athlete Hitchcock resides with his clan. Strap on your hiking boots everybody. And if, like me, you don’t have any let’s ask Scottie trainer and hiker extraordinaire, Bettina, to recommend a good pair.

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.

In Switzerland, a Scottie agility champ is born

It seems like the Swiss take their dog agility training as seriously as their mountain climbing, muddy hiking boots and all.

Hitchcock appears to be related to Flash, whose athletic prowess has also been showcased on the Scottie News.

Venus and Serena, look out!
