Ledger was my breeding and his dam was an Obedience Grand Victrix -- this line continues by way of the far-background in my 35 year continuous line.
Ledger would be over 30 years of age - so the answer is no .
He was never bred .
I would not chose a champion -- I would chose the dog , not the title -- . I have produced Best in Group and Best in Show GSD and ROM (register of Merit) and none of them were produced by "champions" .
I am saying this because I want to impress on you to have a goal in mind , a picture and a feel for an ideal .
I spent years trying to get more recognition of the value of the obedience ring and temperament test for the GSDCof C , which finally relented , and the first trial held at the Nationals had 2 or 3 dogs that passed the test . 2 of them were my breeding owned by someone other than myself.
Not much has changed.
You want a competitive obedience club - then go around to your local clubs, not necessarily schutzhund.
I don't know where you live , but say if you were in my area I would say , Swansea Obedience, Victoria County Obedience , Lab Owners Obedience etc etc. These names may not be current - but this is where you had good exposure.
Another thing to do is to contact the AKC for local obedience trials and then go and attend and see who has what .
and in case anyone gets their knickers in a knot - I am more or less retired ----
