Although setback by a couple of serious injuries as a young dog, Rocky quickly recovered and advanced to become one of the fastest Belgian sheepdogs competing in agility. Rocky went to the 2009 and 2010 AKC Agility Invitational and the 2010 and 2011 AKC National Agility Championship. He finished his MACH in 2010 and was also inducted into the BSCA Agility Hall of Fame.
Rocky and Joan didn’t compete often in obedience, but they regularly won 1st and 2nd place ribbons when they did go into the ring. Rocky earned a AKC UD title in 2011. Rocky’s excellent structure and winning attititude would have made him an exceptional show dog if we had wanted to take him down that path. In May 2012, we entered Rocky in the IABCA Willamette Valley Sieger just for fun. Rocky earned his Alters Championat and a Best in Show Veteran. Not bad for one weekend in conformation showing. Rocky is now in retirement and remains in good health because of the regular conditioning exercises we do with him. Thank you Connie and Rick Batsford for trusting us with this remarkable competitor.
Run Fast, Run Clean Rocky
