Podcast Guests: Emelie Johnson Vegh

Emelie Johnson Vegh began riding at a young age, but in 1989 she was introduced to the world of dogs and dog sports. Emelie had the wonderful opportunity to borrow a Labrador called Kicki, and with her, she embarked on her journey with dogs. She begun training together with Kicki in the youth club and in 1990 Nilla came into her life. Together Emelie and Nilla enjoyed so many things with the youth club and also competed successfully in obedience, agility, and flyball. Currently, Emelie shares her life with a Kelpie named Scout and they compete mostly in obedience and rally obedience but enjoy freestyle, agility, and mushing too.
