· Molly and I got a surprise in the mail today. Lori Fausett
Molly & Jan Niblock – 1 year ago today, Molly earned her first AKC Rally Novice A Q and it was outside. Today, 1 year later, Molly finished her Rally Advanced A title all outside and off leash. I am so proud of her working off leash for her first time outside because of all those great smells, it was very, very hard. Way to go Molly and Jan!
John & Ruth Jasko – First C-Wags Trial ever on July 29th! Tucker came in 3rd and Enzo took 2nd! Great job guys!
Jan Niblock – Molly”s first Q in CPE Wildcard
Finn ran for the first time in level 2 Standard in CPE and earned a 1st place Q. Yesterday he finished 2 CPE titles. CL1-R and CL1-S.
Judy Boone and Carling – 3 legs for Advanced and title, 1 leg in Excellent
Christy and Beau-D – NOC 2018
What a wonderful time we had at the NOC! It is a grueling competition for both human and beast members of the team! We made it to the Top 50, but not the Top 20 (around 25th I think). We had a pretty good morning going clean in all 8 right with scores ranging from -.5 to -8.5.
4 years participation in the AKC NOC; 4 years making the Top 50; 2 years making the Top 20 and all of this with only 1 NQ exercise (last year), that makes 71 times in the ring clean!!! I can not be more pleased with my partner, Mr. Beau-d! He’s officially a veteran and I’m a Senior handler but we hung in there–just got home and time for a NAP!!
I do have to thank everyone who cheered us on up close and from a distance! Thank you to all of those who volunteered their time to make this a wonderful even. Linda McDonald who was in charge of the workers did an awesome job!
Loved seeing Barb Mina and Brodie (who also made it to the Top 50), Oscar and Maska; Renee Machen and Stella (showing in Rally); Jean Spellman and Star (Rally-Beau-D/Stella); Emily Edling and Revel (2nd place in Adv. Rally) and If I forgot someone, I didn’t mean too! Beau-D is already snoring so I’m going to go join him!

hank you to the TKC and to a wonderful panel of Obedience judges. Beau-D continues to amaze me with his consistency and attitude! We showed two trials, two classes each, two days. He won High In Trial and High Combined in all 4 trials (we had a run off with Jeanne Thomas and her wonderful Packer!). We brought home 7 Blue and 1 Yellow ribbon. I never take any of this for granted and love the time I have in the ring and training Mr. B! Next stop-the AKC NOC

I get lots of wonderful compliments on Beau-D, on our smoothness and our relationship. I am always s
o humbled to be the team winning these awards. This never gets old and I never take it for granted. A day will come when we aren’t the team winning and that will be okay. At the end of the day, I have Beau-D and that is what is most important to me. Mr. B will be back in my classroom doing his therapy work this weekend and my HIT/HC ribbons will be used as rewards for my reading students! Love you Beau-D!
Youngstown Trial – April 6, 7, 8, 2018 (written by Christy Thomas)
Great weekend at YABTC obedience trial this weekend! Thank you so much to all of the club members who worked really hard to make this trial a success! So excited for my students,
Gloria Oravec and her Doxy Eddie who finished their Open A title today! It is much harder to be outside of the ring watching that it is being in the ring!!
Beau-D did great also! Winning Open B both days (198 1/2 and 199 1/2 today) and placing 2nd in UB today. These earned him High in Trial both days and High Combined today!! So proud of this boy! Love you Beau-D!! First thru 3rd in Open B today: Beau-D, Sysco (Skye son) and Flash (Beau-D littermate)–two Skye grandsons and
1 Skye son! Pretty cool!

This weekend there
were several students from Canine Sports LLC, showing at CABTC Obedience/Rally Trial.
A big shout out to Glenda Martin and her Standard Poodle Q who took 2nd place in Open B earning her first OTCH point!! Q is her first Utility dog so I know she is floating tonight!
Amanda Phillips and her German Shepherd, came down to the directed jumping, when Sequel took the wrong jump. We’ve worked really, really hard to get Sequel comfortable in the ring and today, they did awesome!
Gloria Oravec and her Doxy, Eddie, had a really nice run yesterday! Again, lots of work going into getting Eddie showing to his best (Gloria too!) unfortunately, the little guy didn’t do his stays. Last week was their first Open A leg!
Coreen Cool and big Eddie (golden)had a few issues, but he always makes us smile when he gets his DB and comes bounding back! Coreen’s golden Kipper did well in Rally and Grad Novice, picking up several ribbons!
Jennifer Baker and her Standard Poodle showed for the first time in Novice A, and while they didn’t Q, Jennifer got her feet wet and there are many good things to come.
Merrilee Witmer showed her golden, Miles, in Grad Novice and while they didn’t Q they had some nice moments in the ring.
Marilyn Richards showed Ryzin in OB/UB and did very nicely.
Congratulations to Marilyn Richards and Ryzin on earning a new TD title on Oct. 20, 2013!!! Wonderful!!

Beau-D (CH Morgen’s Lil’Bit of Skyefire TD CD SH WC CCA)
earns High In Trial at the IX Center Dec. 15, 2012. This was the first time Beau-D was in the Open class.
To earn High in Trial (HIT) a dog and handler must have the highest score in any of the regular obedience classes at a trial. If there is a tie, there will be a run-off between the two dogs–Beau-D had to win a run off to earn this HIT!
August 4th and 5th, Christy and Beau-D compete in the All Star Tournament in York, PA. Beau-D WON the Novice Dog class, beating over thirty dogs and loosing only 5 1/2 points out of 600.
Way to go Beau-D!!
On July 16th Gizmo (handled by Alyssa) got his CD title!!
CD – Companion Dog – is the first in the Obedience titles. You need 3 qualifying scores to achieve this title. It involves heeling on lead, figure 8’s, heeling off lead, standing for exam, recall, group sit of 1 minute and group down of 3 minutes.
CONGRATULATIONS to both Gizmo andAlyssa!!!
Gizmo and Alyssa July 16, 2010 CD title
On Sunday, July 11th Rylie earned her C-ATCH which is her CPE Championship!!! (CPE is Canine Performance Events.) The course was extremely challenging (e.g. doing the dogwalk twice with tunnels on both ends!) and the weather was hot (90 degrees) and sunny! Many dogs went off course but not Rylie who, in the style of a champion, was steady and true. Congratulations to Rylie and her human, Jan!!!
In December 2009 Diva received the title of Outstanding Dam (OD) from the Golden Retriever Club of America! Diva had one litter of puppies who have earned numberous titles in agility, rally, obedience, conformation and field trials!! Ramona writes ” I am so proud of her puppies and the honor they have made possible for her.”
On Mother’s Day 2010 Gizmo got his Tracking Dog (TD) title!! A TD test is done to see how well a dog can track human scent and find the articles left for them. The dog follows a pre-plooted course that is between 440 and 500 yards in length containing 3-5 turns and is 1/2 to 2 hours old. It is a sport where you have to trust your dog!! His nose tells the way so you can hang on and go with your dog. Marilyn and Gizmo ran his track in 4 minutes!!!
