Brags from our Members and their Versatile Dogs

Tubby and Neo passed the American DD test!!! Another title Stateside for this team. 

TAnyone who reads this blog understands how versatile our members' dogs are. We are blessed to have members who compete in many different events because we always seem to have a 'go to' person when new members wish to get involved in dog sports.

Several of our members have Draft Dogs and most of us owe our start to Tubby Miller, who has shared his expertise and mentored many of us from the first day to our first competition and first titles.

On September 27th, 2014, Neo, RainCoast How Deep Is Your Love,  CD. DD.  Am. CD., owned and handled by Tubby Miller of Calgary, attended the Draft Dog Tests in Tappen, British Columbia, coming away with his Canadian Draft Dog Title under judges Phil Chagnon, Paul Bagnall, and Lea Doane. 

 The Draft test requires the dog to pass three separate exercises.  Failing to complete even one of them fails the dog entirely.  Congratulations, Tubby and Neo on this Title and we have fingers crossed that you come home from the Washington with an American DD as well.

Another of our members, Denise McKay, from Fernie, B.C., travelled all the way to Topeka, Kansas with her Dobermans, Spanx and Jagged, to compete at the Nationals in Agility and Rally Obedience competition.
In agility, Spanx finished her Novice JWW title and got a T2B Qualifying score with a 3rd place and 8 pts. her first time ever in that class.
Jagged got a T2B Qualifying score with a 2nd place and 9 points. She ran fast and happy as always!
In the Rally Obedience ring, Spanx picked up a 4th place in Rally Novice B with a 96 her first time ever in rally competition.
Jagged, not to be outdone, not only got her first Qualifying score in Rally Novice B but she did it with a perfect score of 100, the only 100/100 at the Nationals competing with Dobermans.
Congratulations, Denise. It certainly made the long trip worth it.
