Leon loves agility. We have competed mostly in CPE agility but are starting to dabble in AKC agility. He loves agility, but sometimes gets stressed by all commotion at the busier AKC trials. However, he now has two AKC titles: Novice preferred standard and jumpers!
I decided to give rally a try with Leon. He earned his rally novice title in just four tries. He also has a rally advanced title and we recently tried regular obedience at our National Specialty! I was really scared to try regular obedience, but Leon did well. He not only qualified but placed at our Specialty!
Leon has had a successful conformation career. He has been entirely owner-handled for all of his points in both the US and Canada. In just two shows in Canada, Leon earned his Canadian championship and then went on to win BOB as a special.
Leon was bred by Mary and Brent Mattix, Brenmar Ridgebacks, Brush Prairie Washington. He is out of Can/AM CH Thornberry Akala and K-Tai Jet Stream to Brenmar.
Leon was my first show dog and has been entirely owner-handled to all of his wins. Leon has conformation tiles in both the US and Canada, and earned both his Grand Champion title in the states and his Champion title in Canada with ease. Leon is showing potential as a performance dog as well. He already earned his Rally Novice title and is working towards a Rally Advanced title as well as AKC agility titles. He is also a dream to live with and is a very easy going, sweet tempered boy.
Leon was whelped April 30, 2010. He is a nice, moderately-sized, within-standard dog. He stands at 26" tall and weighs about 85 lbs.
Leon is a proven sire with two litters of puppies, including our own Cinder. See the photo gallery for photos of his puppies.
