CH conformation championship (October)


In National Association of Canine Scent Work competition, Quinn earned seven titles:

L1V (Vehicle Element) (MAY)

NW3-V (NW3 Element, Vehicles) (OCTOBER)
NW3-I (NW3 Element, Interiors) (OCTOBER)

Only one more NW3 title to go for Elite.

The Blazin' Q litter owners group has been a real treat to be a part of. The brothers and sisters see each other often and really enjoy summer outings at the pool together. They are great ambassadors for the breed.

Storm SH

November 7, 2021 / Diane Orth

Storm and I took a break from obedience and dove into field this year. After a rough start, failing in our first test, October 16th, Storm did a wonderful job. She finished her SH title November 7th, in a total of 5 tests. Training for senior was a big learning curve for me, but with the help of our CRFCRC friends we did it! I am very proud of this girl, she earned her UDX, OM2 and Senior this year!

Stella is a Junior Hunter!

October 31, 2021 / Dana and Brendan Foley

Timberblacs North Star JH WC CGC, Stella, became a Junior Hunter at the Susquehana Retriever Club's Hunt Test. This girl gave me a run for my money (and a couple of donations to other clubs!) before we finally got it together on water and passed her 4th JH leg. A great team effort from my training friends to get us through some bumps in the road. Watching Stella's progression made it all worthwhile!
