Owner Inherits Dog from her Dad and Earns Top Honor on Father’s Day

Speas’ Max A Million RAE NA NAJ NAP NJP NFP owned by Pat Speas of Cumberland, VA

Max received the top honor in AKC Rally – the Rally Advanced Excellent (RAE) title - on June 21, 2015, at the Richmond (VA) Dog Obedience Club trial.

His title came on a very appropriate day – Father’s Day. Max originally belonged to Pat’s father, Marcus Speas, and upon his passing in February 2008, Max joined Pat’s dog family.

Pat went to work on training Max in several sports and enrolled him in the AKC Canine Partners program for all dogs, including mixed-breeds. Max has been very successful, having earned the AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and the AKC Novice Agility titles. He also serves as a certified therapy dog.

“Max is a very good companion and makes a great team member,” Pat said.
