Sara began with agility in 1995 when, persuaded
by her best friend, Neda, she enrolled in an agility course
at KOSSP "Zagreb" with her Bearded Collie, Toto. Sara
gradually came to realise that this sport suited her and Toto
well and that through agility she could realise her great desire
to spend more quality time with her dog. By working with Toto,
Sara experienced the beauty of working with dogs, the excitement
of competitions and the illimitable ways in which our dogs can
boost our spirits and cooperate with us.
As a result of her involvement with agility she has travelled
around almost all of Europe with her dogs and has competed in
Slovenia, Austria, Italy, Hungary, Slovakia, Belgium, Denmark,
Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg and elsewhere. Sara and Toto
were Croatian agility team members and represented Croatia at
four World Championships. In 2000 they became National Champions.
Sara competed with Cap in agility at the World Championships
2004 in Italy, and 2005 in Spain.
Sara has held obedience classes since 1997 and she is a licensed
instructor for basic obedience and agility. She has also been
the club's SAR licensed instructor since 2007.
She has also been training search and rescue since 2000 with
her two dogs, Toto and Cap (Mawlch Cap), and she is a licensed
rescue dog handler. In 2005 she became world champion with Cap
Sara occasionally attends obedience tests (A, A0, BGH, GH) with
