Earned his SchH3 & IPO3; repeating both titles 3 times at The New England Regional Championships, placing 6th in 2010 with a 276, 96V protection & 92SG obedience and the AWDF National Championship three times. He earned his FH1 with a 96V in 2010 and in 2011 his FH2 title on a tough field contaminated by soccer play (cleats!) while it aged... landing him with an 85, I am so very proud of his work ethic!

Invitations are earned by the number of OTCH points earned the previous year. We competed at the 2014 NOC where he placed 17th out of 127 dogs entered by qualifing all 12 runs over 2 days of grueling competition...he earned 1369.5 points out of a posible 1420 points available! He was only 21 points shy of finishing his AKC OTCH when cancer took him from us mid July 2014. Heartbroken, this boy will always be remembered for his unflapable temperament, zest for life and awesome work ethic.
