Well, we've been working with Tyler, he's 14 months old now, but has some shyness issues. He just needs the experience and the socializing. Training classes are helping a bit, but he gets comfortable with the trainer, but is still shy around other people. We're going to try entering him at the UKC shows coming up in Wisconsin later this month. That's 4 shows in 2 days, so we're hoping that by the end of the weekend, he'll be showing like a champ!
We went up to Ixonia, WI last weekend to the UKC shows. Sissy and Tyler were entered, along with their brother Cheyenne, who is already a UKC Champion. Sissy was Best of Winners at both Saturday shows, beat out her brother for Best of Breed, and was 1st in the Sighthound Group. She also finished her UKC Ch. title. At the second Saturday show she was Reserve Best In Show. We are just thrilled with this win. This moves her up to #5 Afghan Hound in UKC!
Tyler, another of the littermates finished his UKC championship earlier this month. That's 3 of these pups finished this year. Currently Cheyenne is ranked #5 Afghan in UKC, and Sissy is ranked #6. We're very happy with how these kids have done!
