Our club held its annual obedience trials this past weekend. We had a record number of German Shepherds entered in everything from utility to rally. One of the GSDs was the sire of our K litter, T-Rex v Kriegerhaus. He is owned and bred by Phyllis Dobbs from California.

On Saturday, T-Rex and Phyllis earned their Obedience Trial Championship. Only a handful of German Shepherds have earned the OTCH. T-Rex adds this achievement to an impressive list of titles in agility, obedience, herding, and tracking.

I would like to share my sincere congratulations with Phyllis Dobbs and T-Rex! What an awesome team! :)

I had the privilege of seeing them earn their OTCH! Huge congratulaions to a wonderful team!

In the past 5 years of competing, I have never seen so many German Shepherds! So, it was great to see so many!

Congratulations to T-Rex and his owner.

Did you know there were only two OTCH GSDs last year?

That's part of the reason it was so cool to see. Our club only has three OB trials a year, so the odds that a GSD would earn an OTCH at our trial are pretty slim. (I've only seen two OTCHs in 10+ years of attending that trial.) To have a GSD that is the sire of one of our litters earn an OTCH at our trial was pure serendipity.

T-Rex & Kam were right next to each other on OOS stays. We came back from the down and Kam and Rex were curled in the exact same position. A 'like father, like son' moment. :wub:
