In this podcast, we talk to Shape Up Agility’s Justine Davenport and reigning EO Large Dog Champion Jessica Patterson. We discuss their recent success as well as their growing influence in handling both in Canada and throughout the world. (Editor’s Note: I kept losing track of which voice was Justine and which voice was Jessica. Here’s my cheat sheet: Justine has a lower voice, Jessica has a higher voice and a noticeable Canadian accent ;-) )
