Wheat City Dog Show Update!
Earlier this year, one of our families that have a Cassie x Codie coat male named Samson, asked if I would put him in a dog show! He was placed with his family as a companion dog as well they are wanting to work towards training him as a therapy dog. They committed to classes last summer for obedience and then came out to the kennel every Sat am for training the last 5 weeks towards show ring work. These practices have paid off as this weekend Elhart’s Ever Keep on Truckin’ ~Samson picked up Winners Male and Best of Opposite the first show and Best of Breed over Specials for a 2 point major the second show!! A big thank you to Morgan and Leeza for taking this boy in while I was on some of our other entries! Also to Judges Ikuko Nagasako and Dr. Terill Udenberg for recognizing our coated boy!
Also, we have Elhart’s Solo Empire (another Cassie x Codie male) entered and he has picked up Winner Reserve all three shows! Solo is owned and loved by Jason and Katelyn and Co-owned/Bred/Handled by myself. Solo has had several very nice compliments over the weekend and has some amazing social skills that shone through the last couple days.
Jason has also committed many Saturday am mornings to come out and learn the ring rules and how to handle Solo by himself. This is a much harder task than it looks and Jason has really shown commitment and taken every bit of advise so openly and it shows!
I can’t be prouder as a breeder of these two families for all the time and commitment working their dogs!!
As many if you know, my dogs are bred for moderation. No extreme angles and I like my breedings to be clean movers, able to have the conformation to work hours if needed. Full of substance and bone as well as clear headed and healthy.
I had an enjoyable conversation with one of the judges this weekend. He encouraged me to continue with my breeding program without changing anything! He has watched the breed evolve over the last 20 years and was very happy to see the type of dogs I had entered. I always appreciate a show judge that offers their time to comment either negative or positive on my dogs to help me learn and improve my breeding program.
It is very easy for breeders to become “kennel blind” and not recognize the faults in their breeding program… hence showing so we can see how judges react/recognize our dogs!
Elhart finished off the weekend with Kimon von Goldenen Strand IPO1 BH AD taking Best of Breed over Specials for a 3 point major towards his Can. Championship! His first Indoor Show/All breed show in Canada. He was a pleasure to show! Thank you to Judge Luiz Cabral Costa for the win!

Check out some new pictures that I’ve added to the Photo Galleries!
Updated photos of some of our puppies as they continue to mature with their families as well as some shots of my dogs :).
The above photo was taken this summer when I had my dogs in town for a walk while my son was at football practice.
We took a long walk to Tim Hortons and I stayed outside and waited while my daughter and son went in to get some treats. A few minutes went by and a lady came out with 4 bottles of water and some empty chili containers for the dogs. She commented on how wonderful they were and she couldn’t help but buy them a drink. Such kindness from a stranger and the dogs showed their appreciation by slobbering all over her and giving her kisses as they drank. The extra bottle is in my front pocket :). Here I am talking to a lady on her front step and there is a cat in her front yard…as you can see, the dogs are not too worried about it! Socialization is so important to create balance.

Elhart’s Beckett von Burg is now Ch. Pointed with 3 points from show 3 and 4 this weekend at Crocus Obedience & Kennel Club!
Thank you to Judges Gail Forsythe & Alan Bennett for these wins. Also a big thank you to Carolyne for taking in Beckett for Best of Winners!
Beckett is from our first of two breedings with Ch. Pointed Holterbren Lacey Bleu Fleisher OFA H/E x V8 Figo von Buchhorn SchH2 Kkl1, a normal H/E
Elhart’s Baron vom Heuterheim entered in 2 shows goes Winners Reserve both shows.
Gorgeous head piece on this boy.
Becket’s full brother and owner/breeder/handled.
And finally Can. Ch. Elhart’s As Good As It Gets OFA H/E “Arie” goes Best of Opposite 5 shows and Select for 1 to rack up some more points towards his grand championship.
I was trying to get a formal picture but he decided he deserved a well needed nap. I attempted to lay down beside him but he put me in a headlock or a hug…not sure which one lol!
Thank you so much to Carolyne for taking in my boy for 4 shows as I was busy handling either Beckett or Baron, she does a great job with Arie!
Arie is a Cassie x Wall Street son.
Our little girl turned some heads this last Thursday in the Sanction match! This was a fun match, no points, just out for the experience and lots of fun!
Her first time in the ring at 5 1/2 months old and the picture says it all. Ravyn showed beautifully!
