NEW CHAMPION!!! WD/BOW!  What a way to end the show season for Gracerok!!  Chacha went WD/BOW under judge Espen Engh, of Norway, for 2 points to complete his CKC Champion title (he only needed 1 more point)!  Handled by ME!! 

I'm so proud of Cha-cha-cha-cha-chaaa he's really maturing and filling out, building strength, muscle and coat and is just an all round fun and smart, but still silly, boy. 

That's it for conformation for us this year, now we turn back to working towards our Rally-Excellent title -- we're aiming for the Spring 2024 trials.

WD/RWD/BOW!  Beauty and Brains!! Chacha took a break from Rally-Obedience training to head out to Canada's second largest dog show with Emily Burdon and Team for the weekend! 


He did not disappoint...he went WD (Fri judge Denys Janssen), RWD (Sat judge Alex Rojas Sanchez) and WD/BOW (Sun Judge Dr. Francisco Chapa) to collect 3 more points towards his conformation Championship!!  His first time away from home with handlers and he took it all in stride.   

Chacha is now in the 1 point club and we hope to get him back out this Fall to finish his Championship.  Watch for us in the rings in October/November!!

NEW RA Title!!!   Chacha continues to amaze me with his focus and enthusiasm!  Despite the heat in the arena, Chacha pulled out all the stops and earned his Rally Advanced title in one day!  

We earned two High In Class and one Second in Class with scores of 95, 88 and 100 under judges Deana Abbott and Lynn Oslach!!  The 88 would have been a 98 if I hadn't missed asking for a sit in one of the pivot stations...ugh! Now we do some intensive training and proofing for Rally Excellent and will also be venturing into Obedience to trial in Pre-Novice in the Fall.

NEW RI Title!  Chacha showed his love of working, great temperament, with enthusiasm and focus even in a distracting environment and earned his final 2 legs for his Rally Intermediate title under Judge Joan Reid!!  

Chacha placed 2nd and 3rd in large classes with scores of 99 and 86 (handler errors!!) making me so proud of him.  We worked so hard for this and we are hooked!  Watch for us in more Rally-O trials in 2023 and 2024!!

NEW RN TITLE!  Chacha was a good boy at his first ever Rally-Obedience trials and earned his Rally Novice (RN) title in 3 trials with scores of 98, 93, and 100 including two High In Class and one Second in huge classes of 14!!  Then we moved him up and he earned his first qualifying leg for his Rally Intermediate title despite never training on the Intermediate signs (including pivots).  Pictured is our High in Class (100pts) and New Title win with esteemed obedience judge Del Lunn.

This boy is so fun to train, he loves to work and already shows great rear end awareness and lots of enthusiasm.  We can't wait to see how far we can go in Rally-O next year!!
