Rich and Gable 


GABLE has done well in just about everything he has tried,
finishing his AKC Championship quickly and earning very good scores for his obedience titles.


And, of course, he's Oh So Handsome!!!

We are proud to say that Gable was the first Male Rottweiler to
hold both the AKC Champion & Tracking Champion titles!!!

Gable completes his Tracking Championship on March 23, 2003
at the Medallion Rottweiler Club VST trial in Illinois!

Here is judge, Pam German's, critique of Gable's track:

Track #2- This handsome young male also had a strong start, then checked out something part way down the first leg, circled, checked again and went to work.  He wasn't about to give up his track, up to the building, along it to a turn, down the side and through an open galley way, and up to the street and to his metal article! This really turned him on!! He was off and working another turn into a parking lot full of cars... and another article.  He got stronger and stronger and when he hit the last turn we knew he would make it.  Around the pond area to the end and the last drop.  What a great working dog and a skilled handler.


Gable, still VERY eager to track at age eight.


Gable was HIGH IN TRIAL with a 198 1/2 his first time in the obedience ring!!!
He finished his Canadian CD the next day with scores of 195 1/2, 196 & 194 1/2


Gable then goes home and attends the 2001 MRC Specialty earning
2nd place in Novice B with a score of 196!


Gable also finished up his Canadian CDX title with a 195 1/2 and 196,
earned his AKC CDX with three placements (and scores of 194 1/2 & 195)
He earned a ARC Top Ten Ranking in Open in 2003, an ARC Top Ten Ranking in Utility in 2004
and a CKC Top Five Ranking in Utility in 2005!!!
