We compete in many venues including AKC, UKC and ASFA. Our experiences can help you in getting started or improving your methods to achieve your ultimate objectives of having fun with your dog(s) If you know of a great dog product and would like us to market it, let us know and we will consider evaluating it.

Calvin is our most accomplished with 15 titles

He was pictured at least three times in the AKC Gazette from 1996 to1998 to illustrate articles. The Oct. 1998 issue (photo by Steve Surfman) prominently featured him flying across two pages to illustrate an article on structure and movement. He was also pictured on page 454 in Denise Como's book, ``Sighthounds Afield,' with this photo that had earned the photographer (Robert Dequinze) a $500 prize in a Professional Photographer's photo contest sponsored by the Chicago Tribune. It was 1st in class and 2nd overall. BIF, DC, UGRCH, UAGII, UCD Appraxin Callaban Kristobel, CD, MC, LCM3, V-FCH, NA, NAJ, OJP, NAP, CGC, CAVX 14 June 1995-- 23 August 2006
