Judge Peggy Flockhard: Obedience part: 'a nice neat performance, great sits. Maneuvers in the ring: "very well done, very attentive to the handler, good forward motion" "Really nice teamwork, lovely to watch!"

As far as I know Midnight Solo BRTs are the only Blackies in North America to earn Draft titles so far. We are planning to host another Draft work seminar in the spring of 2012. Please let us know if you would like to attend. It is fun activity, very complex, lots of team work and very rewarding venue to compete in when your canine partner is well trained.

Pictures from DD trial are posted in NEW CARTING PICTURES ALBUM

DD TRIAL video will be posted soon, please come back to check it out

Back up exercise at our trial

One more CKC Rally Advanced title in our kennel!

Marley earned 2 QS on June 3rd at Erie Shore KC under judges Del Lunn and Ted Leslie and got his Rally Advanced title.

Marley's full name now reads: Multi Ch. Nord Praid Monarh Rossiyskoy Imperii, CGN, TT, BH, CKC DD, CD, CD-X, RN, RA, CARO RN.

I started spending some time training with Marley in the last few weeks.
We still need to work some things out and become a team. As many of you know, Marley was trained by his owner Alan, not me, so it will take some time till we work well together.

Nevertheless we did OK . 1st trial we got a QS of 100 , but placed second in Advanced B class ( Golden was faster then Marley and got 1st place)
At the second trail I lost 10 points for performing a sign wrong ( well, I had a "blond moment!) and Marley lost 6 points for being too eager and interfering with me, so we were 2nd again in our class with QS of 84.

Our Annual BBQ and Temparament test went very well on June 11, 2011

May 23, 2011 - Midnight Solo's newest Rally Novice title earned by Marley's son Misha.

Congratulations to Carla and Misha on earning their first CKC working title.  Way to go team!  

Misha did terrific!  Carla, did very well, but being a rookie handler make some mistakes and lost a few points for the team.   It is very hard to go in the obedience ring for the first few trails and we know that the experience will come along as they go on, allowing the team to achieve even better scores.

We thank Darren, Isabella and Ashton for their continuous support and encouragement to Carla and all of you for your dedication and love for our Misha.

We can’t wait to see Misha and Calra continuing their sucsess in CD and RA competition!
