Dual Champions

by Bob Mason

Multiple BIS/BISS Dual Ch Kinnike Stewart JH, whose call name is "Martha", has proved she is not just another pretty face. From a top winning show dog, to the incredible achievement of Dual Champion, to the whelping box, Martha has done it all. Martha is the 5th DC bred by Kinnike Kennels reg/Erica Bandes & John Bandes DVM (Va) and Tuija Verho (Finland).

More important is the fact that there are many dogs earning their conformation championship and also their championship in the field at performance events. These titles distinguish the dogs as "Dual Champions." The title of DC is displayed on the dog's pedigree and registration papers for all the world to see. This proves that the dog has the ability, style, stamina, conformation and heart to do what they were bred to do.

What a proud accomplishment!
