At his first AKC match Aro found leaping and rolling around much more fun than showing. And then he discovered...chicken. If he stood still and baited nicely and moved when he was supposed to, he got fed nice juicy chicken. And, we now have a little "SHOW" dog.
Aro earned 2 Best of Breed awards over more mature Shelties during his march to his UKC championship. In 2014, Aro was Winners Dog, Best of Winners and Best of Breed at the Roswell KC and Winners Dog, Best of Opposite Sex at the White Mtns KC. Aro also earned a major win under judge, Mrs. Carolyn Herbel, at the Madera Canyon KC show in Tucson, AZ.
Aro continues his trek towards his AKC championship with Winners Dog 10/03/15 and 10/04/15 New Mexico shows. He followed this up by going Winners Dog at the Canada Del Oro KC show 11/6/16. He now has 14 points, 2 majors towards his AKC championship. We look forward to a bright future with this young dog.
