Riker takes Best In Show for Owner Handler at the Richland Kennel Club show 2014!
Riker comes to us from from his breeders Sheila and Mike Wald who run Quail Point Kennels and breed Vizslas under the kennel name DezertFyre. His Sire and Dam were Bred by Jill and Jim Brennan of Jaybren - Tierah Vizslas. Riker has taken the ring by storm and finished his Championship out of the 6-9 month puppy class. All of his points were earned with Major wins (4 of them!) and two of those wins were under Vizsla Breeder judges and one was by going Best of Breed over a campaigned top ten special at 6 months! He also finished his Grand Championship at 15 months old by defeating a multitude of stiff competition including a Multiple Best in Show (Canada) Vizsla, a current 2010 campaigned (pro-handled) top Ten Vizsla, a Multiple Best in Specialty Show Vizsla and another Best in Specialty Show Vizsla. At the Puget Sound Vizsla Club Specialty in 2011, he also earned a HIT (Highest Scoring Obedience dog in Trial) while trialing for his Companion Dog Obedience Title.
Riker earned his Junior Hunter title at 18 months of age and still continues to enjoy working in the field any spare moment he has. Riker has earned multiple Award of Merits at numereous specialties including the National Vizsla Show in 2011 & 2012 and then in 2013 he upped it one more time and earned and even better placement of SELECT DOG. At the Rocky Mountain Vizsla Club Specialty in Denver following the Vizsla 2011 Nationals show, Riker went on to win his first Best in Specialty Show at 22 months old where he was expertly handled by Graeme Burdon. For the 2011 calendar year, Riker was ranked 13th Vizsla in the Nation for Breed wins with a very limited showing. In February 2012, Riker picked up his second Best in Specialty Show at the Trail's End Vizsla Club of Oregon Specialty in Albany, OR and was ranked by breed wins as the #7 Vizsla in the nation for February 2012. Riker picked up his Bronze level Grand Championship in the fall of 2012. We are hoping to secure his Silver level in 2014.
Riker is not being campaigned currently but continues to work on his agility skills and obedience performances. He does periodically make appearances in the show ring. Riker's first sired litter was born at the end of June 2012 and produced 5 offspring and one of those puppies is our very own girl name "HOTTIE".
Our immediate plans are to start trialing for his next level in obedience competitions and continue competing in agility. He currently is competing in the excellent level courses which are the most challenging runs for AKC agility. Riker will turn 5 years old at the end of November 2014.
