Jan 2012 - Judge Kent Delaney - Portland Oregon

In October 2011 Dante went to Canada's Largest Show and came home the #1 Ridgeback in Canada - and #13 hound. Dante faired quite favourably with the International Judging Panel (Sweden, Russia, Austaralia) Taking Best in Breed, Group 2 and two Group 3's! A huge accomplishment with 30 Ridgebacks entered and 7 of the 10 top Canadian hounds there. Dante ended up #1 but was only shown in 7 months of the year

Stunning Dante lives with his family Fraser, Darlene, Mama Sweet P and the cats! He is developing incredibly well - perfect bone, angles and a head piece to die for. While masculine and handsome Dante retains a soft side to him. One of his best traits is his sweetness, how could he not be coming from his Dam "Sweet" P and doubly so with a sire like Argos, who notably stands out for his good nature.

Dante's show debut was at 7 months old, and he never looked back. He finished his Championship un-defeated in the open class (from the 6-9mth class) in 5 straight days, going Winners dog, Best of winners, along with best puppy in breed, best puppy in group and Best Puppy in an all hound Specialty Show!! Quite an accomplishment as the last two days were at Canada's Largest Dog Show- a dream of a start!

Dante's completed his US Championship in a similar fashion. With Lance, they went down a total of 4 weekends, he was awarded Winners Dog (some BOW) for 4 majors in 4 weekends!

Dante and father Argos have now also entered the Brace Competition. This Brace is undefeated in Ridgebacks including both the Us and Canadian Naionals. To there credit, they also have multiple Best in all breed show Brace as well:

2009 - RRCC - Best Brace in Canadian National Specialty
2009 - ASHA - Best Brace in Hound Specialty
2009 - RRCBC - Best Brace in Regional Specialty
2010 - RRCC - Best Brace in American National Specialty

I assure you he's not done yet, check back for updates...........
