To all the dogs and handlers who achieved titles during 2014.
Earthdog Champion: Dual Ch (ED) Achnacone Rubies R Red (Ruby), Kerryn Pearson
Last year we Introduced the "EARTHDOG OF THE YEAR AWARD" to encourage more participants to our trials. Points are accrued throughout the year and are awarded for passes and titles. The dog with the most points at the end of the year is deemed the winner, should there be a tie a count back will be conducted and if still a tie the dog with the highest title will be deemed the winner.
This year on our winner was:
Dual Ch (ED) Achnacone Rubies R Red (Ruby) owned by Kerryn Pearson.
Earthdogs SA owes it's conception to the hard work of Bill & Brigitte Walkey, to which we are eternally grateful for the legacy they have left behind after their return to Canada.
We are a small group of enthusiasts that train and trial during the winter months. New members are always welcome and we are happy to show & tell you about the ins and outs of earthdogs.
