Sylvia with "Charli Girl" the Associate Labrador/Poodle
first to get the Obedience Grand Champion and Rally RAE titles in
Sylvia says 'We had ceased trialing when the new Grand
Champion title was introduced as Charli had attained the pinnacle of OC
via the UD ring. We had never trialed, nor trained, for UDX and did not
intend to, but with the Grand Champion on offer we started the journey
and she was good enough to get a perfect 200 in her first UDX trial and
get to OGrCh in the same year'

Beryl describes Kali as
an ideal Border Collie, easy to train, always ready to work but calm
otherwise, and thanks Sue Krol for letting her have such a lovely dog.
McCarthy & Border Collie 'Kali'
31 August 2012
Beryl McCarthy and Kali (Tullys Venture) were 2nd in Victoria to achieve OGrCh.
Kali was retiring from the show world and became
mine when she was just over two years old.
She only had show training so
we started from scratch with the obedience training.
Kali is a very sensitive dog so it was all positive
reinforcement training. After 7 months work I
entered her in a trial under the old rules- heel on
lead and heel off lead etc and she won her class,
she then competed for best in trial with another
heeling pattern and won best in trial. In
competitions she was always willing but sometimes
made mistakes but most of her passes were in the
185plus so what she did she did well. Having said
all that what is most important to me is she the
best companion and always wants to be with me
whatever I am doing.

Ian Woollard &
German Shepherd 'Jake'
10 May 2013
Those who know Jake, find him to
be a wonderfully natured German Shepherd Dog with a
calm and friendly disposition, he puts both other
dogs and people at ease. Jakes wonderful temperament
is easy to live with and he is a very trust-worthy
friend, however this does have a down side,
competing in obedience at the higher level requires
a little more effort and planning as Jake is not
inspired by the work. To overcome this I try to be
consistent in my handling so Jake always knows what
to expect and what to do.
We acquired the early obedience
levels, CCD, Novice and Open quite quickly,
obedience was still new to Jake and his intelligence
and co-operation made things relatively easy. As we
progressed through UD and UDX it was necessary to
focus more on motivation and although Jake’s
performances are generally very good he does have
his off days.
From the moment I learned of the
OGrCh title this became my objective, as Jake was my
second UDX dog I had an idea of what was involved.
He was just shy of his 5th birthday when
we achieved his OGrCh title in May 2013.
In December 2013 I retired Jake
from obedience; he now does a bit of tracking and
enjoys watching his niece Nyssah work.
