My gratitude to Corinne Boon for sharing this breeding and this puppy with me.
At just over 4 months Maya tried her hand at herding and loved it! She passed her instinct test although she was too young to certify. She came back at 7 months and passed again earning her Collie Club of America Herding Instinct Certificate (HIC).
From the puppy classes in AKC competition, she was recognized with two All Breed 4 pt majors and 2 Specialty major reserves before her first birthday. She finished with a 3rd major at the Collie Club of Washington Specialty show. Her litter brother finished the same day going WD/BW. Another litter brother is now finished and her litter sister is major pointed. Maya is also a Herding group 1 winner & group placer.
2017 brought an exciting addition - joining team Maya is Corina Olsen!
Maya finished 2017 ranked #16 (Canine Chronicle All Breed)
2018 brought her a Bronze Grand Championship title and a nice Group 2 win!
She finished 2018 ranked #20 (Canine Chronicle All Breed)
Maya is beautifully handled by her co-owner/co-breeder Alexzandra Erb.
Now as a Veteran, Maya is back at Specialties and having a blast! Her first weekend as a Veteran she won her class 3 out of 4 and picked up a big Best Opposite to Variety under Lee Runnels.
Maya's daughter Ch. Tercan 'N Zandria's Enchantment is in the ring as well. You can see more about 'Piper' here...
