Rupert is a very active little dude and we keep busy competing in Earthdog, Agility, K9 Noseworks and Trick Dog. We are enjoying spending time together and learning tricks and little Rupie is very smart and a super fast learner.
Rupert was awarded Best Neuter of Breed at the 2021 Sydney Royal Dog Show, which we entered purely for fun and to show off this amazing breed to the public!
Rupert has been semi-retired from the show ring for a while now and only comes out to play for major events in order to interact with the public and get lots of pats and attention!
Earthdog season 2021 has finally commenced and we are hoping to attain the final pass for Rupie’s Master Earthdog title, and all fingers crossed, we can start work towards his Earthdog Champion title too.
We have also started trialling in both Trick Dog and ANKC Noseworks with Rupie so far having attained 1 pass in each sport. By the end of July, I am hoping to have gained enough passes for his Trick Dog Starters title.
Rupert and I still both dabble in agility too, but it’s not really the sport that has him light up like Earthdog, Trick Dog and Noseworks. He is really reliable on agility courses, but his drive and enthusiasm really shines bright with the other sports.
I just adore this sweet little dog and can’t wait to get back out there trialling!
Rupert becomes the FIRST EVER Norwich in Australia to attain the Novice Trick Dog, Intermediate Trick Dog, Advanced Trick Dog and Expert Trick Dog titles through Do More With Your Dog (AKC affiliated).
Rupert has re-entered the show ring and has become the SECOND EVER Norwich in Australia to attain the Neuter Champion title.
Rupert has really proven himself to be a fantastic Earthdog with an amazing working terrier instinct. We struggled with the recall section at first -- Rupie stubbornly refused to leave the den and his quarry -- but eventually, with a lot of perseverance (and the crinkling of a food packet!), Rupert has now mastered the recall too.
He has now become the FIRST Norwich in Australia to attain 3 Earthdog titles: Earthdog Instinct Certificate, Junior Earthdog and Senior Earthdog.
