Kelly St-Jacques & Tango - 400mm
I am both thrilled and deeply honoured be part of Team Canada for a third time. Tango and I cannot wait to return to the Netherlands and represent our country at the WAO next May.
I have been training and competing in agility for many years, but it was Tango who showed me we could dream a new dream and then work hard to make it come true; her work ethic and passion for the sport are inspirational to me. Our partnership is even more special to me because as her breeder, I have known her since her first breath on the planet; we have made every step of this journey together. I feel truly blessed and grateful every time I step to the line with this awesome little girl.
When I’m not training for or competing in our great sport, I am teaching for the Department of English at the University of Ottawa, hanging out with my husband, or spending time with my family (which includes four young grandsons, all of whom I hope will one day be junior handlers!). Tango and are very fortunate to have the unwavering support of our family and friends.
My mantra, which is engraved on a bracelet I wear every day and in every competition, is “Intensity Gratitude Joy”; that is how I try to approach not only our sport but all areas of my life.
