      She DID it!!!!!!

      Chloe went 1st in both Utility B (198) and Open B (199) yesterday at the Wilmington Kennel Club trial against tough competition. She was High in Trial, High Combined, and most importantly finished her Obedience Trial Championship (OTCH).

      For those not familiar with the OTCH, it is the highest title that can be earned in Obedience. To put it in perspective, only 4 Labs in the county earned one in 2017. It is earned by defeating other dogs in competition, including dogs who have already finished their OTCH (unlike in most other dog sports where you don’t have to defeat a Champion to become one). You need to win at least once in Utility B, once in Open B, and one other win from either class. Only one of the wins can be at a specialty. In addition to the wins, you need to earn 100 points. Points are given for placements in either Utility B or Open B, and the amount of points depends on the number of dogs competing that day.

      I am OVER THE MOON proud of this dog and all we have accomplished. This was a dream of mine since before she was born, and there were times along the way, especially when she suffered what should have been a career ending injury, that I wondered if we would ever achieve it. My heart is full today.

      Now it will be time to focus on the young dogs, although I won’t completely retire Chloe - she loves it too much!
