Abbey, Maggie, and Carmel received qualifying scores at the Dayton Dog Training Club show in July of 2007.  Abbey showed two days and received scores of 97 and 98 earning two legs.  Maggie received a score of 99 which was a four way tie for first place.  She received the second place ribbon for her time and finished the RN title.  Carmel received his third and final leg to earn his RN title. Carmel received a second place at Echo Hills with a score of 99. This was a very good day for the cavaliers.  Abbey has since completed her AKC—RN, RA, and RE, and UR01 and UR02 titles; Carmel his AKC—RN, RA, and RE, and UKC UR01 and UR02 titles; and Maggie her AKC—RN, RA, and RE, and UR01 and UR02 titles.

Another Great Weekend in Rally

Another Dynamic Duo

has hit the scene in Rally Obedience.  Left is WestView’s The Bruce Legend RN (Bruce) and below is CH WestView’s Lolita’s Dream RN (Lola).  Lola and Bruce have earned their AKC RN title and their UKC UR01 title.  Both have one leg toward their AKC RA title and UKC UR02 title.  2011 will find them competing in Rally in AKC and UKC. 

Rally Obedience has proved to be a fun way of working with our dogs.  It has also been a good way of introducing the cavalier into the obedience ring.  In Rally you are able to use verbal encouragement and commands and use hand signals to cue your dog through a numbered course.  The course has signs at each number to indicate what type of obedience exercise you and your dog perform as a team.  These are our dogs that have been competing in AKC and UKC Rally.
