Monica Wickstrøm NOR
“I love the Obedience sport because it’s a big creative world of solutions. In excercises i work a lot too create the right balance between running exercise and switching from speed in to calming. I have been competing at the National team with 2 dogs in “working dog”. My first dog a Schæfer became Nordic champion in 1990. After that i have been competing with 3 different dogs in the Obedience national team. This year I am qualified to world championship with my 8 years old Chili. She was qualified the first time when she was 2 years old. Beside I am training my 1 years old Crei-Zi.”
