Boom! 2020 goals achieved!
Jake von der Alte Baum, 11 years old, completed the top 2 titles in AKC Scent Work and UKCs Champion title within the last few months. Very few, if any, dogs have this combination of high titles competing in these venues! I couldn't be prouder of him!
Photos are Jake's first Detective Leg with judge Bonnie 2 years ago, Leg #10 with judge Kim YESTERDAY and a photo of him in wheels and another practicing a high hide showing off his strong rear end!

A year ago Jake injured his back and was in wheels to be able to walk without falling. After swimming multiple times a week and rehab, he roared back from retirement in June to trial again after 9 months off, better than ever and now has finished what he started.
None of this would have happened without all of the clubs that put on trials, the organizers and volunteers who worked tirelessly at those trials to keep them running smoothly and the judges who spent hours on their feet in all sorts of weather from 40 mph wind, rain and snow to 100° temperature!
I truly appreciate the support of all the friends that I've made in my travels and my training partners (You all know who you are!). And also thanks for the private messages of congratulations that I received from all of you. And for my non-dog training friends,this is a big deal and thanks for understanding my passion and supporting me like you do!
