Instead of competing in just one or two dog sports, I love cross-training dogs. I’ve titled a Belgian Malinois named “Z” in AKC obedience, rally and agility. Z earned his AX in agility with three first place finishes. When he was just a little over two years old, he earned his IPO I title with a First in class, High in tracking and High in trial.

A month after his HIT for Schutzhund, Z went on to title in AKC obedience and rally with two first place wins and a second place for his CD. In rally, Z has had three perfect scores of 100. He recently earned his IPO 2 and 3, the highest level that can be earned in the sport.
