“American Pit Bull Terrier, “Benny,” was a "Total Dog" qualifier at the 2015 UKC Premier. At 12.5 years old, he won the Altered Champion class in conformation, earned qualifying legs in Nose Work, Barn Hunt, and Weight Pull, earned his RATN title, earned his Pre-Trial Supreme title in Nose Work, and earned first place in Advanced NW Vehicles search and first place in RATN. He was one tired boy by the end of 4 long days of trialing! But we definitely hope to make it back to Kalamazoo next year!"

"My brag is for my Gigi, she is a Belgian Shepherd Dog and will be seven years old at the end of May 2015.
She recently earned her UACHX at the Autumn Winds Dog Training and Agility Center in New Hill NC under judge Kim Smith.

I took this photo of Gigi with the two blue ribbons she earned at the trials. She is wearing the very nice title medallion given for new titles by the Autumn Winds club."

"Total newbies to UKC here- we thought we would see what happened with our Shih Tzu. Had the grandkids entered in juniors, and Pien Ji's Merlot entered in conformation. Merlot went in the ring 18 times over the weekend- Kaz won her Novice Junior class twice, and took a second and third , and Jack (the only Pre-Junior- entered in 2 shows only) won his class twice. Merlot was the only Shih Tzu entered- he took a Grp1, GP2, ended day 1 with a RBIMBS, Sunday took GP1, GP2, and his 18th time in the ring, walked out with Best in Multi Breed Show! That makes him BIMBS/RBIMBS CH Pien Ji's Merlot! A VERY special thank you to judges Larry Hansen and Eleanor Main"

Our Whippet, GCH Sportingfield’s Bermuda Shorts, has had a successful 2014 season so far. Our boy has garnished 4 BIMBS and a reserve BIMBS to date (July 31, 2014). We would like to thank Judges Tina Camp and Emily Carabello for the back to back Best in Multi-Breed Show wins July 4th during hurricane Arthur weather. Even in the pouring rain, Rio showed his heart out. Luckily the rain finally stopped for his win photo with the judges.

We had a great weekend at the 2014 Carolina Classic. Cobalt and I had six 1st place Rally Obedience placements in URO2 and URO3 with three High In Trials. He also pulled 3,412 pounds on rails (45x his body weight), for 20 weight pull points each of the three days. The one conformation show we entered on Saturday, he received a Group 4 placement.

Cobalt and I are currently training for Utility Obedience and for tracking, continue to work towards weight pull titles, have started competing in nose work, will compete in UKC Agility for the first time at the 2014 Premier, and hope to maintain our #1 position in URO2 and URO3 Rally All-Stars Ranking.

I knew he was something special for a long time now, in UKC he finished to his Grand Champion title with ease. My 1st love though is performance, be it obedience, agility, rally and even weight pull. What a thrill it was to have him show such potential in performance as well. He really proved a conformation dog can be a performance dog at the Bettendorf, IA show this past March 1, 2014, when he stepped into the breed ring against a number other beautiful Papillons. We had showed earlier in Rally and finished 1st in his class with a 99, and the point off could have been caused by me, so when he took BOB I knew we had earned a “ Total Dog “ award. His 1st of this year.

He ended up with a Group 1 in both shows so he went on to BIMBS. What a wonderful honor being awarded “Reserve Best in Multi Breed Show”, and in “Both“ shows that day…. It wasn’t over yet… after everything was figured out in the performance event, not only did we earn a “ Total Dog “, we earned ”High in Trial”….

It wasn’t until later that night at the hotel I realized it was my little leap year puppy’s 2nd birthday…. And I was the one who got all the presents…

Thank you so much Judge's Jeanne Heger and Heidi Halverson
Also Kathy Davidson for Rally

He ended up # 3 in 2013 Top Ten and # 4 in Rally RO1. We are on our way to a Super Dog distinction.

Rolo was imported to America from the great Kilcavan Hamiltonstovare in the UK in June of 2012. I knew that I was getting a great show dog. He hit the ground running once he started competing in UKC events earning multiple group wins and multiple RBIMS. I decided to try weight pulling on a whim. He has taken to it with such gusto and surpassed what I would have ever thought. He earned his three qualifying pulls and also went Total Dog each time.

Rolo is such a joy to live with and a true example of a great Hamiltonstovare. He exudes nobility and is all business in the show ring and when weight pulling. When he gets home, he is just a total goofy boy and lives life to the fullest. In just one year of showing, he is the #1 Hamiltonstovare in UKC rankings, has 7 group 1st's, 2 RBIMS wins, 3 Total Dogs, and earned 2 UKC titles. To those that have been around Rolo, they adore him and I constantly get praise for his wonderful personality. I even see this on twitter from time to time from his "fans" #GoTeamRolo".

First Jagdterrier to earn UGRACH title!

We are proud and happy to announce a goal we once thought was unachievable. Rocky came to us as a 4 1/2 month old puppy, after being in two other homes that did not work out. We knew nothing about the Jagdterrier, so I did plenty of research and learned that they are mainly bred for hunting and have high energy and drive. He has also proven to us his loyalty and eagerness to please.

Our veterinarian who gave him to us recommended agility. That was 8 years ago, and I didn’t even know what agility was. (I thought it was teaching your dog to jump through hoops.) Rocky and I pursued the sport with gusto, soaking up all we could from trainers, publications, and “trial and error.” It has been great to help Rocky focus on a job and be tolerant of other dogs and people. He especially loves the tunnels and jumps, while contacts have been our nemesis. He has also enjoyed several years of Terrier Racing as the biggest dog on the course!

It has been a very fun (and sometimes frustrating) ride on the UKC circuit, and we often came home with more to work on! The atmosphere with UKC clubs is welcoming and upbeat, and we could not have done this without the encouragement and support of friends and fellow competitors. So to all of you who know and love Rocky from inside or outside his “force field”, Thank You for seeing this through with us!

Not only did my little 8 pound papillon earn a "Total Dog" at the All American Bulldog Clubs weight pull and conformation show Saturday, October 12, he won their "Triple Crown BIS". What an Honor to bestow on my 8 1/2 year old guy who went on to earn three 20-point pulls that weekend. He earned his UWPO Title as well. Thank you to the judges and the entire club. It was worth the drive.

At the Garden State Kennel Club shows on July 5th and 6th our whippet Rio---Ch Sportingfields Bermuda Shorts was RBIS multi-breed show at show 1 under Michele Wachob, at show 2 he was BIS multi-breed show under Kimberly Himes and on Saturday at show 1 he was BIS multi-breed show under Antonio Raposo. This is our first whippet showing UKC and are very happy with his success so far. He is currently ranked (tied) #2 whippet as of August 27, 2013. He also achieved 2 other RBIS multi-breed wins at the Delmarva kennel club shows back in March 2013.
