Bossman Sweetater Freighter RAE8 earned his eighth Rally Advanced Excellent (RAE) title on Feb. 14, 2015, at the Lakeland-Winter Haven Kennel Club dog show in Lakeland, FL. Eight-year-old Tater is owned by James & Barbara Roberts of Lakeland, FL, and is handled by James. The couple saved Tater a few years ago when they were at the store, picking up some tools and overheard a man saying he was on his way to take a puppy to the “pound.” The animal-loving couple could not stand the thought of this so they offered to take the puppy. Tater entered his first training class at age 5 months and did so well that the couple kept training him. Earning the RAE requires dogs to qualify in both the Rally Advanced and Rally Excellent classes at the same trial 10 times, meaning Tater has now accomplished this 80 times!
