DORA THE EXPLORER
I have a number of dogs who have achieved in conformation, obedience and varied activities but only one who has excelled in all these areas - and continues to excell Dora The Explore - AKA Neutered CH Tapua Honey Gem CDX RNA.
I first met Clare 12 months before Dora was born, Clare came to suss us out, she visited when I had a litter of 7 week old Labs ( Dora's 1/2 siblings) even though the litter was all spoken for she took the time to drive out the 350km from Sydney to visit us at Tapua Kennels. I knew from the first time I met Clare any dog she chose would be well loved and shine like a star in her hands.
Dora was born 02.04.2012. Like all our Tapua pups, she experinced Early Neurological Stimulation , sound desensitisation and she was raised in an enriched environment. She was collected by her besotted parents John and Clare Seligman 8 weeks later and began her jorney with them in Cromer Sydney. Clare and John attained Dora's Neuter championship within 12 months but all the while preparing Dora for the obedience ring.
IN THE OBEDIENCE RING
CCD - Community Companion Dog
At 14 months old Dora gained her first and second pass in CCD at the Illawarra Dog Training Club in 7 July 2013.
Onward to CD - Companion Dog
Clare & Dora competed again at the llawarra Dog Training Club in 6.7.2014.
Dora and Clare went onto trial at the NSW Obedience State Trials in Oct 2014 attaining her Novice title .
Dora and Clare are starting to attract admirers from other competitors and judges for her enthusiastic trialing ability.
Then came CDX Companion Dog Excellent
Dora & Clare were competing in the CDX from December 2014 however she gained her first CDX pass at 2 years and 11 months old at the Hornsby Dog Training Club.
And the results continue in open
ON THE FIELD
RATG Retrieval Ability Test for Gundogs - 2016
So while competing in both the UD and CDX ring I encourage Clare to 'just for fun' enter a couple of RATG and or Novice Field trials. I said - you never know she might enjoy it and its something different ... so Clare and Dora entered 3 Novice RATG trials - she qualified in each trial. Now remember Dora has never ever done any RATG training and this is a very new sport for Clare ... so far in 2016 Dora has attained the following results ....
Novice Stakes Field Trial
We are looking forward to the 2017 results.
