Travis came to us a small bundle of fur and grew.......and grew. He was entered in a show by mistake at the very young age of 6 months and when I realized what I had done decided to send him anyways. He got through the weekend with 4 points and two Best of Breeds from the Junior Puppy Class. The following show and still as a Junior Puppy he amassed another 4 Best of Breeds and 2 Puppy Group wins completing his Canadian Championship at 7 months of age. Travis is the type of Akita that never realized he was an Akita weighing approximately 90 pounds at 9 months and wondered why the Shih Tzu don't want to play. Still as a Junior Puppy, Travis was entered in a Puppy Tournament (Peach of a Puppy) and came second in a very tough class of 35 shown by Mom.

Travis took about 2 years off as he needed some growing up time and time for the body to catch up with the legs.  His first set of shows after his sojourn produced two Best of Breed wins and consideration in the Group ring on a three day weekend.  WOW - Group 4 under respected judge Janet Wilcox and Group 2 under respected judge Cheryl Myers-Egerton in a very tough Working Group.
