Throughout his Conformation career, Dylan regularly received BOB and many in group and show awards.















Six year old Dylan has achieved a truly impressive array of qualifications in his career to date. 

Dylan arrived in December 2009 and commenced  tracking training within weeks of arriving, achieving his Tracking Championship (TCh) at 10 months of age after passing seven straight tests within a twelve week period. 

Before he was two years of age, Dylan had obtained his Dual Championship, Track and Search Dog title (TSD) and Agility, Jumping, Gamblers and Snooker Dog Novice titles (AD, JD, GD, SD).  By his third birthday, Agility and Jumping Dog Excellent (ADX, JDX) and Track & Search Dog Excellent (TSX) titles were added to his already impressive achievements. 

At four years of age, Dylan had gained his CD and CDX obedience titles with scores up to 199 out of 200, in addition to Snooker and Pairs Excellent titles (SDX, SPDX).



With the advent of Rally Obedience, Dylan added Novice and Advanced titles (RN, RA) to his tally, in addition to a Track and Search Championship (TS CH) by the age of five.  Rally Excellent (RE), Pairs Excellent, Jumping and Agility Masters (SPDX, ADM, JDM) were achieved soon after this, culminating in Dylan’s Track and Search Grand Championship.    


Dylan is currently competing in Utility Dog (UD) Obedience, Masters Rally Obedience and Masters-level Agility and Jumping.
