Dino's Earns Utility Title!
Klamath Falls, OR and Nampa, ID
Second Mixed Breed to Earn the AKC
OBEDIENCENew Utility Dog – A round of applause goes to Dino for becoming the second All-American to earn the Utility Dog title – a major achievement in Obedience! Dino, also known as Woodacre's Court Jester UD RAE, had just finished his CDX on March 27 and to finish his UD less than two months later is quite a feat.
Dino's owner Jacqueline Phillips of San Leandro, CA, and Dino finished the UD on May 14 at the Idaho Capital City Kennel Club trial in Nampa, ID. Dino also is the first and still the only mixed-breed to earn the highest AKC Rally honor of RAE. You might recall Dino's story. He was turned into a shelter as a puppy and was deemed "untrainable and out of control." Luckily, a rescue group and Phillips saw his potential.
Phillips said their next goal is to qualify for the AKC National Obedience Invitational before the qualification period ends on June 30. We wish them luck!
