Baker Ties Record for Top Coursing All-American
Ingomar Di Mancini Torsione Pane CAX6 RN CGC, also known as Baker, recently earned his sixth AKC Coursing Ability Excellent title.
This feat tied him for the top titled All American Dog in the AKC Coursing Ability Test (CAT) program. The CAX requires dogs to pass the coursing test 25 times so Baker has now had 150 successful qualifying runs.
Baker, a German Shepherd- Collie mix, is owned by Kate Renner of Pittsburgh, PA.
He finished the CAX5 on Oct. 1 at the Bayshore Companion Dog Club CAT in Freehold, NJ, and then quickly followed up with his CAX6 at the Langley Kennel CAT in West Point, VA, on Oct. 30, 2016.
“He loves chasing those ‘bunnies.’ This photo captures his joy,” Kate said.
Kate also handles the first All American to earn the CAX6 – Iyong Tapat Kaibigan CAX6 (Kai), who is owned by her friend Stephanie Markgraf.
“We hope to pass his best buddy Kai one day,” she said.
