About Payton . . . (as written by Kysha Hunt)
Payton, aka "the brown blur" has tons of drive and loves to play. She is confident, sweet, and intelligent. Payton is a sheer delight to live with and shares her home with Owen, an older male brindle Boxer – they are the best of buds! Not only has she taught Owen the art of digging holes in the flower garden, but she's managed to introduce him to the naughtiness of unrolling toilet paper in order to get at the highly-desired empty tube. Payton is now learning to channel her high level of energy through agility training and will start competing once her owner / trainer can catch up!

Payton’s show career . . .
Payton began showing at 8 months of age with a very nervous – but more than willing – Kysha at the end of the lead. In just a couple of shows, they had accumulated 3 points towards Payton's championship before she was spayed. From that point on, Kysha and Payton have been a team to watch in the performance sport of agility!
