Hat Trick

How often does one score a hat trick of completing three AKC titles in three different disciplines in a weekend at a dog show? And with the same dog? Well Casey and I did just that this past weekend at the Empire Kennel Club in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He completed his American Grand Championship by going Best of Breed on Friday for a 4 point major and Select Male (3 point major) on Saturday. He went Best of Breed on Sunday (4 point major) to start his points for his Bronze GRCH. Casey went OH all three days and took a Group 2 on Friday in the NOHS Group. He also completed in Beginner Obedience on Friday and Saturday and finished his BN title on Saturday. We also jumped into the Rally Novice B class all three days and I am proud to say that he qualified all three days and earned his RN title . Three new titles (pending AKC approval)! Casey is now MBIS RBIS RBPIS Can/AM GCH Heirborn Above The Law WC RI CD CGN AM BN RN. So proud of this wonderful boy! This was the first time that we attended this show and it was great! The venue was bright and spacious with reserved benching but lots of unreserved benching spots, too. The sporting dog people were benched together so I met some wonderful people and made new dog show friends. Everybody was so friendly! There was lots of parking and lots of room to exercise dogs. The obedience and rally rings were in the same building but in a separate hall so it was relatively quiet there. The show offered New Title rosettes for dogs who completed a new obedience or rally title so we got two beautiful rosettes in addition to all of the other ribbons. The long drive was well worth it!
