Meet Chess, an athletic border collie living in Tennessee
“Chess will do anything for a Frisbee!” says owner Ashton Bemis. “I keep hers on a shelf in the laundry room, and if she’s bored, she’ll go whine at the door, begging to play.” Bemis describes her dog as driven and says she loves learning new things. Chess has built up quite the résumé too. She competes in “toss and fetch” as part of an international disc league and is also training for competitive agility trials.

FAVORITE WEEKEND ADVENTURE:
Finding the best local waterfalls. “Chess loves water. She’ll splash around and pick up sticks to carry with her,” says Bemis.
