Beaucerons In Agility
Jordan doing the dogwalk - Click for full size

The most famous and most accomplished Beauceron in the sport of dog agility is by far Jordan de l'Atelier du Peintre owned and handled by M. Gerard Mousse.

Jordan placed second at the 1997 World Agility Trials in Copenhagen Denmark out of 112 of the top agility teams from 23 nations. Jordan has also competed at the World Agility Trials in 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001, and was a member of the World Champion French agility team in 1999 in Dortmund, Germany placing 7th overall.

Agility is just one of the many activities Jordan and M. Mousse enjoy. Jordan also holds the title Champion de Travail - Obeissance (the French equivalent to an AKC OTCH), and if that is not enough, he also has a tracking title, and he has earned a Ring I title. Talk about a versatile dog! Jordan has also been rated Recommende (cotation 4) at the Nationale d'Elevage (the French National Beauceron Specialty).

Here are some recent accomplishments of other Beaucerons in the sport of dog agility.

Titles updated through June 2016.

** News Flash ** First Beauceron to earn Master Agility Champion 3 ** News Flash **

Congratulations to Maureen McLatchy and Demi (Demi du Bois du Nord) for making Beauceron history yet again! Demi is the first Beauceron to earn an AKC Master Agility Champion 2 (MACH 2) title and an AKC MASTER Agility Champion 3 (MACH 3) title. Just earning a MACH is very difficult, but Maureen and Demi have earned three times that. For each MACH you need a total of 750 MACH points and you have to qualify in Master Standard and Master Jumpers both on the same day, with perfect scores of 100, 20 different times (20 double Qs). That means Demi has earned over 2,250 MACH points and has earned 60 double Qs. Demi is now semi-retired and is jumping in Preferred and is well on her way to a PACH (same requirements as a MACH, but at one jump height lower)!

Miss Demi du Bois is the AKC Top Agility Beauceron of 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015. Demi & Maureen are such an awesome team and so fun to watch. Maureen is an incredible trainer and such a smooth handler. There seems to be no limit for this team! Mickey (Disney du Bois du Nord) is so proud of his little sister.

** News Flash ** First littermates to earn Master Agility Champion ** News Flash **

Demi du Bois and her brother Mickey are the first littermates to earn MACH titles. Demi is just the 3rd Beauceron and Mickey is the 4th Beauceron to earn a Master Agility Champion title. A third littermate earned an Agility Trial Champion of Canada (ATChC). What a talented litter!

He is now working at the Open level in NADAC and has already earned an OAC, OGC, and OJC. Nikos and Jimmy are also currently working toward their Master Agility Dog (MAD) title in USDAA. I have seen this team compete and they are a very fun team to watch.

** News Flash ** First Beauceron to earn USDAA ADCH (Agility Dog Champion) ** News Flash **

What can I say about my litte girl. I am so proud of her and so thankful to Guy Bonnefoy of France for breeding such a wonderful dog. Soleil earned her first three agility titles in just 3 weeks, all with 1st place ribbons (9 qualifying scores). That was just the start. Since then, she has competed at the 2007 AKC Agility National Championships where she placed 6th overall in the 26" jump height. She has also qualified to attend the AKC World Team Tryouts in 2006, 2007, & 2008. She is also the number one Beauceron in AKC agility for 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, & 2009 and placed 4th in the 24" class at the AKC/Eukanuba Invitationals in 2008. I never expected in my wildest dreams that she would be as good as she is. She is just so much fun and the perfect teammate. There are no limits to what she can accomplish.

Soleil is the first dual Agility Champion Beauceron earning both an AKC MACH (Master Agility Champion) and a USDAA ADCH (Agility Dog Champion).

You can view videos of some of Soleil's agility runs by clicking here.

Unfortunately, Soleil's agility career was cut short due to cancer. She is now waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. Not a day goes by that I don't miss my little girl.
