Jake Wins

Jake is a beautiful smooth coated Shiloh, very much like his famous grandsire, Ch Hilltop's Triton King Of Zion. He is proudly owned, trained and handled with much love, by Charlene Larson. Jake earned his Canine Good Citizen award from the AKC at an early age, but that was only beginning.

In 2005, Jake and Charlene began competing in APDT RallyO competition. They earned their RL1 Title, placing in all three trials - 3rd, 2nd & 1st (in that order) with scores of 198, 198 and 196. Jake also received an "Award Of Excellence" for his high scores and for completing his title in only one year! In 2006, this Shiloh obedience team doubled up on their accomplishments... Jake not only earned 2 legs toward his RL2, placing 1st and 2nd in those trials with outstanding scores of 204 and 202, but he also went on to acheive his RL1X! This requires a qualifying scored in 10 trials, in 8 out of 10. Jake's scores were an amazing 200 and above. He also placed along with some of the top competitors in his classes in 5 out of 10 trials.

Charlene and Jake won their second "Award Of Excellence"! Jake's average scores are consistantly above 200, highest score to date (1/17/07) is an incredible 209 which his he earned 3 times at separate trials! The APDT award "Magna Cum Laude" for teams who have earned 3 scores of 190 or above. So far, Jake is currently titled with his CGC, RL1-MCL, RL1X, RL2-MCL and has earned his first leg toward his RL3 with another 1st place win!

  • Update: CONGRATULATIONS to "Jake" (Jake CGC, RL1-MCL, RL1X, RL2-MCL, RL3 (1st leg) who received a Special Award for not only placing in the APDT's National Top 20 Rankings, but also the highest scoring dog/handler team - #1 in the RL1X Level! This is an accomplishment to be VERY proud of.
