Canadian Grand Champion Wil-Joi Alluring Larkspur V Meraki ATD TKA RI CGN THDN VGD VDX
Bryer comes from Carol Ann of Wil-Joi Great Danes in Illinois. At the time we were not looking at adding another dane to the household but fate had a different idea and we couldn't be more thrilled, he fit into our family seamlessly. He's a pleasure to live with and I gained a very close friend and mentor in the process.
Bryer is naturally bright and grasps ideas and training concepts easily. By 6 months of age, he knew over 20 different cues and earned his Novice Trick Dog Title. By 9 months of age he earned his Rally Novice title. As we prepare to begin Intermediate Rally soon, it is also our goal to enter the Obedience ring by the end of the year. We have also begun training the foundations for agility and although we are a long ways away from competing (prior to doing any jumps and tunnels we want his growth plates to close) we enjoy building our relationship and focus in the practices.
