CHIC #97144 (what is CHIC?)
November 6th: Izzi goes WB/BOW/BOBOH under judge Sandy Wheat. Her son Chuda gets a nice compliment from the judge on his front and her daughter Cira earns her first Rally Novice leg.
September 19, 2015 Izzi adds 2 more coursing ability Qs to her pursuit of her CAX (Coursing Ability Excellent) title
January 16-17 Izzi earns 4 more coursing ability Qs. I believe she now has 18 of the 25 Qs she needs for her CAX. Lately we've been concentrating on getting her daughter Cira trained in basic obedience but once Cira has earned her last Rally Novice leg we'll go back to working on advanced rally and obedience titles with Izzi. We are also continuing to train in agility.
March 2016, Izzi goes WB for her first major under judge Jacqueline M. Rayner.
September 2016 Izzi adds 4 more coursing ability test Qs.
October 2016: In Albany, OR at the Samoyed Club of America Nationals Izzi has an amazing week. First she ran 4 more coursing ability tests to achieve her CAX (Coursing Ability Excellent) title. Then she qualifies her first time in Rally Advanced with a 4th place. We then go into the ring for the first time in Beginner Novice Obedience for both of us, and she qualifies again. I'm so amazed at this girl's intelligence and desire to work. We train quite a bit during the fall/winter season, but coming off the summer in Phoenix, we've been quite limited as to the amount of training we could do leading up to the National. Izzi and I also entered Novice weight pull for the first time, where she was tired from having done so much coursing, but still tried hard for me and pulled 375lbs. Finally, she placed 2nd in a big novice working sweeps class. I'm so proud of this girl & can't wait to see what else we do together in the future.
February 2017: Izzi starts off the year by finishing her Beginner Novice (BN) obedience title and her Rally Advanced (RA) title. It takes 3 Q's (qualifying scores) to earn a title in rally or obedience and she went 3 for 3. It was a challenging weekend for her, competing in conformation, rally, obedience and also doing lure coursing.
March 2017: Having only seen sheep once before in her life, we took Izzi to a local Celtic festival that was having an AKC herding test. She showed a lot of enthusiasm and passed both legs for her IT (Instinct Test) title. Samoyeds are traditionally a herding breed, and it's always wonderful to know that instinct has been preserved.
May 2017: We went out the Durango Kennel Club shows for the first time and had a great time... great shows, and it was great seeing some samoyed people we don't see very often. Izzi went WB/BOW on Friday under judge Eva Berg.
September 2017: Izzi earns her Trick Dog Novice (TKN) title!
At the Prescott, AZ shows, Izzi goes winner's bitch on 9/24 under judge Joyce Vanek for another point. She also got to do another Coursing Ability test - Izzi has her CAX, and we're not really going for her CAX2, but she does adore running.
November 2017: Izzi goes winner's bitch & best of winners under judge Mr John Constantine-Amodei for another 2 points. Izzi also goes winner's bitch and best opposite over a special under judge Beverly Capstick.
