YAY, you! What breed of dog are your champs?
I have a golden retriever who's an Estonian Junior Champion, has his certificates for Estonian and Latvian Championships but sadly I think I can never pass the working test with him, since the need for one popped up just as he got two years old and he had never seen a duck in his life.
I also have a flatcoated retriever, who I adore to pieces! He's a Baltic Junior Champion as well as a Baltic Champion and is waiting on his last CACIB for his International title. He's from working lines, does a lot of hunting back home with my mother and is the chosen dog for our 'celebrity pheasant hunt' things there.http://adencourt.mercurial.pri.ee
for an awfully outdated site, only the Estonian part is somewhat up to date. :]
I've also finished a fair bit of champions, having several Bobtails, Do-khyis and English Bulldogs to my name, as well as several other breeds. Don't mean to brag or anything, but I generally enjoy the sport. :> Wish I could do agility more but my flattie has some health issues that put me off of it. These days I mostly work as a ring steward.
Oh, and mods, if this is too much (in quantity, naturally
) off-topic, feel free to split into another post. I'm very sorry if I derailed the topic!
