On June 21, 2003, Trooper became the first Gaylan’s dog to earn the GRCA’s Versatile Certificate Excellent award. This award requires dogs to be accomplished in three areas: conformation, hunting and general obedience (which includes agility and tracking). We are so proud of all that Trooper and his best friend, Jan, have accomplished.
Although Trooper has focused most of his efforts getting ready to run Senior and Master Hunt tests, he and Jan hit the obedience rings in March of 2001. They finished up earning Trooper’s Companion Dog title with a Dog World Award (title achieved in 3 straight trials with scores 195 or better). From the obedience ring, Trooper headed for the breed ring where he finished his Championship in short order. A few months later (once the ice was off the ponds), Trooper ran in Potomac Valley GRC’s Working certificate test and passed, making him our most recent dog with a Versatility Certificate! In 2003, he ran eight hunt tests, qualifying in each to earn his Junior and Senior Hunter titles. He also took some time to earn his Novice Agility title and get one Novice Agility Jumpers leg.
Here he is with his “brother”, Dillon after the WC. They are the first two dogs on the left.
