Reba’s Fancy Red Heart ACT2 BN FCAT CA CGCA CGCU FDC RATN RA SHDM SWM SWNE SWAE SWEE SWME TDI THDN TKI TT owned by Barbara Bumcrots of Maumee, OH
Reba already had a big first under her belt when she became the first All American Dog to earn the AKC Scent Work Masters title, and only the third dog of all breeds to finish that top-level title.
Now she has topped that stellar achievement by becoming the first dog of any breed to receive the required number of qualifying scores to earn all four of the Elite Level titles: SWNE, SWAE, SWEE and SWME. Additionally, Reba is only three qualifying scores away from her Detective title.
When Barbara adopted Reba, she was 8 months old and had already had two homes. She is Barbara’s first rescue dog and came from the Golden Retriever Rescue Resource in Toledo, OH. Barbara said she has always had a “soft spot” for a red colored Golden Retriever, and Reba fit the bill and her smaller size was a plus.
They began working together right away in agility. “Reba likes agility in class but not as much in a competition setting (no treats!)” Barbara said.
The team began to work in other sports, and Reba earned titles in rally, obedience, barn hunt, therapy dog, trick dog, coursing ability and Fast CAT.
In April 2017, their Scent Work journey began; Barbara found what Reba loved to do best.
