At his very first show, “Phelps” won a 5-point US Specialty Major at the SSC of Greater Baltimore, from the Junior Puppy class, under breed specialist Mr. David Calderwood.

Phelps then won Winners Dog at the 2019 ASSA American National, again from the Junior Puppy Class, under sheltie breeder-judge Mrs. Robin McTaggart!

Competing then against an entry of 345 Class Shelties, Phelps won Best of Winners at the 2019 ASSA American National, under breeder-judge Mrs. Meredith Hector! Thank you, Sydney Robinson for BOW.

Back in Canada, Phelps finished his Canadian Championship in one weekend, including two Group Firsts and two Best Puppy in Show wins. 
His first win was under Mr. Davor Javor, including Group 1stand Best Puppy in Show

He then finished his Canadian Championship under Mr. Roger Hartinger, with another Group 1st

Next time back in the US, Phelps won another Specialty Major in Indiana, under breeder-judge Ms. Carolyn Ing

At the next show, Phelps again won a Specialty Major to finish his American Championship in style, under breeder-judge Mrs. Patty Skinner

Phelps was then bumped up to Specials, and the next day won his first American Best in Specialty Show, under breeder-judge Mr. Carl Skinner, over a quality-packed entry of 61 Shelties, including 16 mature Sheltie Specials!

 At his next show back in Canada, Phelps wins his first Canadian Specialty, at the CSSA Regional under breeder-judge Mrs. Judy Kelsey.

Then back again to the US, still a puppy, Phelps won his second American Best In Specialty Show, under highly respected judge Mr. John Buddie.

Finally, the next day, Phelps wins another American Best In Specialty at the SSC of Western NY, under sheltie breeder-judge Mrs, Jo Ann Pavey.

Phelps has accomplished all of this under 11 months of age. It has been an amazing journey with this young puppy and we are very excited about his future!
