Beaucerons In Tracking

On September 1, 2001, the Beauceron was moved into the AKC Miscellaneous Class and they are now eligible to compete in AKC obedience, agility, and tracking.

It didn't take long before the first Beauceron earned a tracking title.

A special congratulations to Remington Steal My Heart Away and owner Catherine Carbone. Remington was the first Beauceron to earn an AKC Tracking Dog (TD) title on September 30, 2001.

The first picture is of Cathe and Remmy the day of the tracking test. Between the fog and the overgrowth, I don't know how any dog passed that day!

The second picture is a very happy Cathe with the judges and tracklayer after she and Remmy had qualified.

Cathe and Remmy have already started their training toward the Tracking Dog Excellent (TDX) title. Expect to see great things out of this fine team in the future.
