History teacher Kelly Coble & Australian Shepherd Rugby

How did you get Rugby?
I got Rugby from a breeder. It’s the same breeder that my parents got their dog from, so he’s actually the nephew of my parents’ dog. His dad was a show dog, but his mom was a working dog, so he’s kind of in between.
What are some things you do with him?
There’s a whole world of agility training where you go to competitions and regionals, and there’s nationals with different levels. Rugby and I train—we go to a two-hour class once a week, and he needs it because it’s mentally challenging for him. When I leave him at home, I’ll leave hidden things to find, and that will burn him out.
