Achievements

ACHIEVEMENTS PAST AND PRESENT IN PERFORMANCE AND SHOWRING FOR BRAFFERTON OWNED OR BRED COLLIE ROUGHS AND SMOOTHS.

Whilst it is wonderful to see dogs from litters achieving, the most important is to see them all in loving family homes.  Some people do not have the time with work and/or family commitments and activities to do the training for trialling level.  Many have given the dogs a variety of wonderful experiences in outings to country and beach as well as basic training and they are enjoying a good quality of life in loving family homes.  All this is also greatly appreciated and I love hearing about them all.

TO ALL THE BRAFFERTON OWNERS, A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO.

During our time in performance sports we have seen many changes come and go as well as new disciplines introduced. Herding we saw in its infancy and the changes from HIT being a Title with the passing of more than one test required being more similar to the now HT then the introduction of the HIC later with only one pass required.  Tracking has seen many changes too. We started with TQT which is now gone and also saw the introduction of extra tests. We were there for the beginning of Track and Search and achieved the then highest level being TSDX with 3 of our collies at the time.  Later came the TS CH and TS Grand CH which Shadow son of Thunder achieved keeping the first of things in these fields in the family. We were also lucky enough to see Rally Obedience come into being here in Australia. There are still very many new disciplines out there that collies have yet to try. Such a variety of things for a very versatile breed, will be a great journey for some.

Below are the Dogs that have achieved and their Resigstered names with Titles, followed by year order of who achieved what (Call Names only on these).

I have colour coded the ANKC recognised disciplines :- Herding, Tracking, Track & Search,  Nose Scent WorkObedience and Rally Obedience, ShowringLure Coursing,  and Trick Dog (ANKC registered) 

I have also colour coded  Battle Of The States - Australian 100 Metre Sprint Competition  along with Nose Scent Detection Work which has ORT (Odour Recognition Test) as well as ACSW (Australian Canine Scent Work) [Non ANKC] NSW1 (Nose Scent Work 1). This is not yet ANKC recognised but many dogs are doing it. 

Trick Dogs is another non ANKC Title done via "Do More With Your Dog" which is an online course and can be done at home. NZ does not as yet have tricks but the NTD (Novice Trick Dog) Title is recognised by the Canadian and American Kennel Clubs.

There are Braffertons are out there having a go and achieving in  many of these fields. Also we are thrilled to have one of our Dogs be tested and accredited as a Medical Assistance Dog.
