Since Diesel was working so nicely in Novice and Open, why not start him in Utility? We started the Utility exercise and another problem presented itself. Now that he has his own set of articles, he also needed a good way to carry them around. For a short time we were using an old soft sided dog carrier that belonged to my first dog. It was less than ideal. Not only because the articles were not easily accessible… it was also pink. Poor dog.
One of our friends had just gotten a brand new article bag from OTCH Articles, and highly recommended the bags to us. We were sold! Linda was a joy to work with. She sent us several design options and modified the embroidery to fit our tastes.
The bag has two pockets, one on each side and a velcro closure on top. It makes dumping the articles out and putting them back in very easy! I ordered the medium sized bag for Diesel and his 4″ triple bar articles fit perfectly!
