Kylie was born in January 2013 at Eyespy Border Collies in Connecticut. Kylie’s mom is Hattie, a well-bred sheep dog who we first met in 2007 when we were meeting Rhyme’s mom! We watched and waited and when the timing was right we brought home a new baby girl.
Kylie is a very busy girl and when we call her, she races through the house and over or under the other dogs to make sure she gets to the door first! She gets along well with the pack and can often be found hoarding all the toys in a corner of the room that she has claimed as hers.
Kylie began her agility debut in mid-2014. She and Dan compete in both UKI and USDAA. Kylie attended her first Cynosport World Games in 2015 but only as a spectator to cheer on her brother and sister and to participate in Dock Diving, a sport she seems to love.
In 2017, she not only returned to TN for participation in her first USDAA’s Cynosport World Games but also headed to FL a few weeks later for UKI’s US Open. While Kylie didn’t make any final rounds in those two National events, she did show she could handle the pressure of the big stage.
At the Y2K9’s UKI trial in August 2018, Kylie earned her IAC and IWAC (UKI’s International Agility Champion and International Win Agility Champion) titles. Later in that year, she returned to the US Open ready to play. She earned a spot in both the UKI National Final and the Speedstakes finals where she earned a sixth place finish.
Kylie and Dan continue to work to improve their teamwork to prepare them for future national events.
