1st AKC Rally Champion:
RACH Chloe Wild Child UDX OM1 BN VER RM3 RAE3 SWN SCNE SCA SIA SEA THD CGC TKA & Nancy Nelson of Manorville, NY
A rescue group rescued Chloe from a kill shelter as a puppy.
“When I adopted her, she was 6 months old and her rescue foster mom told me that Chloe wanted a job,” Nancy said. “Now, look at all those titles. Her rescue mom was right!
“Chloe is an amazing, intelligent dog who loves the challenge of new things to do. The first time we tried those side by side circles in Rally Master, she looked at me and said, ‘Huh?’ But in no time at all and with a little food lure in practice, she said ‘I got this!’ We love doing them – it’s like we are dancing together.”
Chloe became the first mixed-breed to earn the AKC Rally Championship (RACH) on July 20, 2018, at the Susque-Nango Kennel Club trial in Binghamton, NY.
Nancy added that Chloe is quite the entertaining character when it comes to training and trialing.
“She always works with that sparkle in her eye, so I never know what she may surprise me with! Every time we pass that finish sign, her head goes up high and her ‘woo woo woo’ starts – and the more the judge, stewards, or spectators chuckle, the more she’ll ‘woo woo woo.,’” she said. “She is just telling them she knows she is done, and a jackpot is waiting back at the crate.
“Chloe, you have given me so much besides all those titles… you’ve taught me to relax, enjoy the ride and be in the moment. Chloe, you are my joy and my treasure.”
