On Saturday, June 23, Arie went Select Dog and Best of Breed Owner Handled for a 5 point major (and defeating Champions of Record) under Judge Robert Hutton. We had a photograph taken so it will be posted when it becomes available.
On Sunday, June 24, Arie went Select Dog and Best of Breed Owner Handled again, this time for a 3 point major (and defeating Champions of Record) under Judge Elliott Weiss.
Combining the wins for both days means Arie earned 8 points, along with two major wins and defeating Champions of Record two times for the weekend.
To earn a Grand Championship, AKC's requirements are that a dog must receive three major wins under three different judges, defeat Champions of Record three times, and earn a total of 25 points. Arie's wins this past weekend have him well on his way towards meeting the requirements needed for a Grand Championship.
