Hemi has grown up to be a great guy and seems to have taken quite nicely to life in his matriarchal society! From the beginning he’s enjoyed getting out to dog shows and agility trials. Quite the outgoing fellow and has yet to meet a stranger. His first ring experience was at the Rose City Classic competing in the Puppy 4 to 6 Month Competition. He had a blast!
Hemi hit the show ring in the summer of 2012 and in short order has garnered 6 championship points to include a 5-point major. He finished in March of 2013 with 3 majors. I am proud to note was breeder-owner handled and groomed finishing at 18 mos from the Bred-by-Exhibitor class.
After taking almost a year off, Hemi went back in the show ring mid-February 2014. Hemi received his AKC Grand Championship in May 2014, ranking in the top twenty after 3 weekends out as a special. By October 2014, he reached Bronze Grand Champion level. Hemi achieved his Canadian Kennel Club Championship with only one weekend of showing, topping the weekend off with a group placement.
Hemi finished out 2014 ranked in the Top Twenty PWDs in the country. He was invited to compete in the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America Top Twenty Event held in Frankenmuth, MI. He thoroughly enjoyed his last tour around the ring and is now taking some well-deserved time off to torment the girls!
