2017 Libby and Ziva Annual Awards Recognition

DOTCORNY training club held their annual awards banquet last night. Recognition and Title bars are given to members and their dogs  for  titles earned during the year.  Our members and their furry partners earned 278 titles across multiple venues!  Each year we have a nice dinner, time with our friends, a game of dog trivia and one of our members puts together a movie of the members and their dogs throughout the year.   I have attached a link to that movie.


I knew the girls and I had been busy and in 2017 Libby and Ziva earned a total of 16 titles!  Thank you Julie for my smart, versatile girls who are willing to try whatever I ask.  They are always eager for any adventure even if it is just a trip to the park or riding shotgun while I run errands.

Ziva lead the way with 11 new titles.  She became an AKC Champion, earning her Tracking Champion Title (CT), Variable Surface Tracking Title (VST), Trick Dog Novice Title (TKN), Trick Dog Intermediate Title (TKI), Trick Dog Advanced Title (TKA)and her German Shepherd Dog Club of America Temperament Certificate (TC).  In the Preferred Agility classes she earned her Open Agility (OAP), Open Jumpers with Weaves (OJP), Excellent Agility (AXP), Excellent Jumpers with Weaves (AJP) and Master Jumpers with Weaves(MJP).  She also continues to hold the record and possession of the trophy she earned last year for most titles earned by a member’s novice dog.



































Libby not wanting to be left out earned 5 new titles;  Companion Dog Title (CD), Farm Dog Certified Title (FDC) , Trick Dog Novice Title (TKN), Trick Dog Intermediate Title (TKI) and her German Shepherd Dog Club of America Temperament Certificate (TC).

Ziva finally gets a chance to play

Ziva had nice runs on Saturday at the SOTC agility trial after being off for 4 weeks.

Master JWW Q with a 3rd placement


Master Std Q with a 1st placement

She has another pending surgery coming up, so we will be laying low for a bit, which is hard for Z-Evil one to do!  I don’t think we will be ready for any agility until May.  Until then we can sharpen our Nosework skills to keep her out of trouble 🙂

Ziva’s Double Q weekend at the Erie Kennel Club Agility Trial.

The 1st weekend of the new year Ziva was entered in the Erie Kennel Club Agility Trial. In spite of her handler she managed to Double Q both days and earned 78 PACH points! She is such a super girl, adapting to me no matter what I ask of her.  They had 5 feet of snow the week before that was piled everywhere and the cold (-1 degree) made us both prefer being in the hotel room. Potty walks were very quick 🙂  They got about another 2 foot of snow our first night making me wish for spring and glad I had an automatic car starter!
Saturday in Masters  JWW and Ziva had a super run for a Q and 3rd place.

Ziva’s second class of the day was Masters Standard. There were some unplanned bobbles, but we got thru them with a 2nd placement and a double Q!!!!!


Sunday in Masters JWW we Q’d with a 2nd place 🙂



Sunday our second class of the day we had a Q in Masters Standard with a 1st place,  earning her 10th leg and her Masters Standard Preferred Title (MXP) AND our 2nd Double Q of the weeked!!!

A little time outside in the snow at the show site where they plowed for the dogs, but it was filled up overnight!













Most of the weekend spent in the hotel because of the cold!
