Dynamic Dog Duo Owner Hopes For Big Competition Win

Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, AZ -

Something new this year at the Westminster dog show along with the competition for best in breed there will also be an agility competition.

An Arizona woman and her two dogs have already been picked to compete and FOX's Diane Ryan got a sneak peek at what these dogs can do.

Meet Ho and Hundo . They are two dogs with a lot of energy and that's the way Alicia Nicolas likes it

"I have always been a competitive person and I got a corgee and the corgee needed something to do I sought out agility and I was addicted," Alicia said.

She set up an agility course and started training her dogs in the back yard and then put up a obstacle course for them with lots of runs.

She puts in a lot of time with the dogs constantly going through the paces.

"You do have to put in some time training and work through the pieces Some dogs are scared of the Yteeters you have to worth through each piece,"

When Alicia heard that Westminster after 138 years is hosting the first ever agility trial she signed up and her two dogs were picked.

"It's a big deal I've done goal setting and Westminster Dog Show is the icing on the cake."

She's heading to New York City in February 6 she hopes the dogs come back as winners.
