CH. AGASSIZ'S JUSTIFIABLY SO (aka Casey)

Ch. Riverwild's Rushing to Agassiz

Rush suits her name, as she is always on the go at warp speed around here looking for squirrels, splashing around in the pond and searching out anything that moves. Conformation championship was a breeze for her and she passed her herding instinct test with flying colours!  She came to us from Vanessa Downing, Alberta but her mother is originally from our kennel.  We are thrilled to have her as part of our Agassiz team!

PRIESTCREEK'S AGASSIZ FIRED UP (aka Annie)

Annie is  from Tammy McGarry, Priestcreek Kennels and has been a fun addition to our team as well.  While not fond of the show ring, she excels as my companion dog and loves to go hiking and bird watching with me. She also passed her Detection Order Test with flying colours!

CH. RDIAMONDBAR LOVIN ME SOME HONEYCRISP, CGN

Honey came to us from Nebraska as a young puppy, but she has ties to our kennel.  Her grandfather on her father side is our MBIS, MRBIS GChEx Agassiz's Whiskey On The Rocks!  Finished her championship in style with lots of accolades, most notably winning Best Puppy in Breed and Best in Juvenile Sweepstakes at ACDCC Regional and National Specialties 2019!  She is also a multiple group placer and has passed her Canine Good Neighbour certification.  She has been tested on sheep and we hope to continue.  She is also very much a water dog!   She is co-owned with Jeremy Browne of Byeyo Kennels.

BIS, BPIS G CH. AGASSIZ'S BLUEBERRY CRUSH, (aka Ginny)

Ginny has done very well in the show ring since she was a very young girl. She earned her championship with ease and just before she was a year old she won her 4th Best Puppy in Show and a Best in Show as well, shown by her previous co-owner Jeremy Browne of Byeyo Kennels.  She was the first female ACD to ever win a Best in Show in Canada!!

Her first show in the US at Kalamazoo, MI in the spring of 2014....as a junior puppy she took Best of Breed from the classes.  That gave her a 5 point major for her first points towards her American Championship! There was a total of 21 cattle dogs entered over all...then she was considered for a group placement.  The next day she went Reserve Winners Bitch at the Regional ACD Specialty....what a thrilling weekend!  

Then at the Australian Cattle Dog Club of America National Specialty 2014 in Tennessee, she won her 12-15 month class over an entry of 10 dogs!  What another honour for this young girl!  In 2017 she won Select Female at the very first ACDCC Regional Specialty as well.

In the show ring she followed the footsteps of her father MBIS, MRBIS, Can GChEx Agassiz's Whiskey on the Rocks, CGN, HIC, VS, RIT (Whiskey), her grandfather BISS Ch. Uretopia's Truth or Dare, HIC (Boomer) and her grandmother MBPIS Ch. Agassiz's Krystal Blu Persuasion (Krysta)

She will do some limited showing in 2020, but plans for herding are in the future for her now.  She's a great hiking dog, has high drive for any kind of fetching and loves the water!

CH. AGASSIZíS KRYSTAL BLU PERSUASION, HIC, CGN, VS (aka Krysta   

RIP 2007 - 2018

Krysta now resides as the Rainbow Bridge, but she is fondly remembered. She was sweet and lovable like her mother Risk, but and full of life like her father Deacon. She was the #1 ACD (conformation) in Canada for 2008. She had 24 groups placements to her credit, including two Group 1sts. Krysta is also a 2X Best of Opposite Sex winner at the ACDCC National Specialty (2009 and 2011).  She also won 13 Best Puppy in Groups and 2 Best Puppy in Show awards!  Sheís also an awesome herding dog! In her retirement years she was living the dream with good friends.

CH. AGASSIZíS SIMPLY MARVELOUS  (aka Marley)

Marley is beautiful blue speckle and at 11 years old she is the veteran girl residing here at our kennel.  She is still highly energetic, loves to puddle in the pond and chase the ball. But her most favourite past time now is lounging around on the couch. Marley finished her Canadian championship with multiple group placements and Best Puppy in Groups. She did pass her herding instinct but didn't really show a keen interest in continuing.
