For 10 years I have been Portuguese Team leader at Agility World Championships.
I am 60 years old,was born in Lisbon and teach biology at the university of Lisbon. Agility is a hobby that started in 1991. Started with a Portuguese pointer, later I competed with a Terveuren and since 2008 I have Shetland sheepdogs. In 2013 became a sheltie breeder - “Luso Shelties” (Luso means Portuguese and came from Luis & Sofia). At this moment, I have 5 shelties: Spicy, Sheepy, Salina, Smash and Sea.
For 10 years I have been Portuguese Team leader at Agility World Championships. I also participated, with my Shetland Spicy, in 8 Agility World Championships.
