PDCH Solstice!!

Solstice earned her PDCH at our USDAA trial yesterday! Only six GSDs before her have earned this title, and I'm pretty sure she's the first white shepherd. I know I don't post a lot so you don't really know us but this is a pretty big accomplishment for her. When we first started group classes she was too terrified to even go near the equipment, and here we are now! She also accomplished this just before her 3rd birthday in a couple weeks, so she's come a long way in a short time and I'm eager to see her confidence continuing to improve. She's not as fast or confident in trials as she is at home, but getting better all the time.

Here is video of some of our runs over the weekend. We're not the fastest out there but we get it done! Team Jumpers was the first run of the weekend and looots of dogs E'd on that course (especially in the first 5 obstacles), so I'm glad we made it through. Over the weekend we Qd in every class but one, where Solstice said it was too scary to do the teeter by herself in the gamble.

Now if Ryker can ever get a fricken Starters Jumpers Q, that will be like getting a championship with him... :P

Congrats...it is awesome to see a white shepherd accomplish so much...Proof that they are great dogs along with a dedicated human to guide them....

Beautiful dog by the way....If I can ask, what is your grooming routine-what do you use to keep her looking so white...
