Thanks to guidance from Mum Michele, Zephyr has been fast learning his trade as an obedience dog. We were delighted to hear that Zephyr was a big success at the Obedience trials run at the Belgian Shepherd Dog Club of NSW Specialty show, on 14 September, 2013. As shown in the attached photos, Zeph won ribbons as both the highest scoring Belgian Shepherd, and as the highest scoring dog in the CCD arena.
In February 2014 Zephyer was the top scoring dog in the CCD area for 2 out of 3 days at the Sapphire Coast Kennel and Obedience Club shows in Bermagui, NSW. Lesley and Rob were there to applaud, and Michele (left), Zephyr and Lesley are shown in the attached photograph on the day. With these wins, Zephyr completed the requirements for his CCD title, which was awarded by the ANKC on 26 February, 2014.
Continuing on from this, Zephyr was qualified for his CD (Companion Dog) obedience title on 22 June, 2014. The title was officially awarded on 10 July 2014. Next, on 2 September, 2014 Zephyr was awarded his Rally Novice (RN) title and then his Rally Advanced (RA) title on 26 February, 2015.
2016 has been a good year for Zephyr in the Obedience ring. Most recently, in October 2016, he competed at both morning and afternoon shows at the Southern Highlands Kennel & Obedience Club competitions. He came first in both shows, and completed both his “Rally Advanced Excellent” (RAE) and his “Companion Dog Excellent” (CDX) titles, which were officially awarded on 10 October, 2016. Earlier, in April 2016 we were officially notified that Zephyr had obtained his “Rally Excellent” (RE) title. Big congratulations for achieving these titles to Zephyr, and of course to Michele and Clinton!
