Castle is settled in New Jersey with Chuck, Maryann and their other dogs. He’s doing agility, obedience and tracking. Castle finished both his AKC and UKC CDs, as well as his TD and NA by March 2008. Since then he’s earned his Open Agility (OA), Open Agility Jumpers (OAJ), UKC and AKC Companion Dog Excellent (CDX) titles. He earned his CCA under breeder judges Chris Miele, Sue Petermann and Jeanne von Barby and then passed his TDX in the fall of 2009. This gave him enough points for the GRCA’s Versatility Certificate Excellent award.
In April 2011, Chuck and Castle passed the AKC’s Variable Surface Tracking (VST) test, making Castle our second Champion Tracker (CT). He has since gone on to complete his Master Agility Championship, making Castle one of fewer than a dozen golden retrievers to have both of these championships. Castle is also collecting UD legs so we expect to be updating his page again soon! Congratulations to this great team!
