Manca Elvira – Segretary
Elvira get her first approach with agility for a joke, because should be her husband to do that with their mixed breed dog “Jasmine”. Jasmine is 9 years old and she still playing agility competition and is giving to Elvira a lot of satisfactions. Elvira and her dog get for 2 time the finals of “Master Trophy” with good results even if they never reached the podium, but as in Elvira’s philosophy this is ok also in this way, because agility is above all fun and love for dogs. As Elvira always says : “Bad days could happen to our dog and to us, but it’s not important, because Jasmine is above all my dog and she is not for agility only, she’s above all my loved dog”
