Seven - officially known as
OTCH, U-CDX High Times Winning Combination, UDX5, OM6
earns Obedience Trial Champion

Seven truly is a very special dog. Our journey began in John and Nancy's backyard pond. As a puppy, she demonstrated that she was a born leader and swimmer at the age of seven weeks. I picked her up on what one would consider to be the luckiest day ever, 7-7-07, hence her name “Seven.” Little did I know that day the true meaning of being the luckiest person ever. She continued to thrive and flourish. At twenty-one months, she went on to gain High in Trials in both AKC and UKC obedience at the Novice level. We then went on to win 1st at the UKC Premier for the Novice level soon after that. Seven continued on to the Open B and Utility B levels placing in the B classes for each level, and soon after obtained the UDX title. She has gone on to obtain multiple UDX titles and Obedience Master level points as well as earning more High In Trials and High Combine awards from the Open B and Utility B levels. She is currently on OM7 of her Obedience Master title and we hope to earn the OGM.  On September 15, 2013, we earned the prestigious title of Obedience Trial Champion. Seven is my second OTCH dog and the journey has been one I will never forget. Seven is a joy to live with, show and love. I am so proud of all of her accomplishments. Thank You John and Nancy for breeding this special dog and to Bridget Carlsen for helping choose Seven and for always providing me with great training advice.
