Marcy discovered agility in 1996 with her very first dog, Shetland Sheepdog, Merchant. He earned a CDX and HT in his more senior years, and was very close to earning his MACH. He continued to compete in agility past his 12th birthday, but was forced to retire due to a chronic shoulder injury.

Wave, her second Shetland Sheepdog is a 6-time consecutive AKC/FCI World Team member winning an Individual Gold medal in 2008 in Finland and has earned multiple top 10 placements in Individual rounds at the World Championships. Wave has also represented the USA 5-times at the European Open Championships. In 2007, in Italy at the European Open Championships she won the Individual Agility round out of a class of 150 dogs, and was an Individual finalist, plus earned a 2nd place in Team Jumping from a class of 340 dogs. In 2010, Wave became the AKC National Champion winning the 12” class. In 2012, at the European Open Championship in Sweden she was both an Individual and Team finalist.
