My name is Manca and I come from Ljubljana, Slovenia. I first stared with agility in 1999, but than I had few years of break due to sick dog. When I got my first border collie Bode in 2006, my life completely changed. I started to train more seriously, attending seminars and developing knowledge of this lovely sport. In 2010 I ran on EO with Bode, and also got new border collie, this time a girl named Lin. With all my knowledge I managed to teach Lin great basic and now its really easy to run with her. My both dogs are crazy fast and have great ability to work, so I just love to work with them as much as possible. In 2014 I got new puppy, papillon Aksi, who now also competes in highest level A3. At the moment I have 4 dogs: Bode, Lin, Aksi and puppy Breezy.
Lin ran at AWC 2015 & 2016 with Polona Bonač, they were 2nd in team large 2015! And they ran many EOs and will run AWC 2018 too.
Aksi qualified for EO 2016,2017&2018, and also AWC 2017&2018. At AWC 2017 we got 5th place in agility invididual run and in EO 2018 we became team champions in small!
In 2010 I started working on my judging exam. So from fall 2013 im also agility judge (from 2014 international). I was also team leader for EO 2013, team assistant for EO 2014 &2015 and assistant at AWC 2014&2015.
I teach agility for more than 8 years already. Many students of mine are team Slovenia members for AWC and EO.
My goal is to have fun and enjoy working with our great dogs!
