    And if he/she doesn't have any titles, what titles are you going for, and when do you plan on getting them?

    Now go, brag!

    :D

    Spy has his RN (rally novice) and CGN (canine good neighbour). I am hoping to get his RA (rally advanced) this June, and am really really hoping we can someday get an agility title if we sort out his jumping issues.

    Agility Dog of Canada - starters standard title AAC
    Starters Games Dog of Canada - starters games title AAC
    Canine Good Neighbour

    She should have her AADC and AGDC by the end of the year and hopefully her RN next month as well as her AGN and AGNJ this summer. Maybe her RA by the end of the year and her SHD, just not sure how many CKC shows we'll hit up. Gonna work to get her CD next year though.

    Current dogs:

    Ziva is Stardog's Can't Take the Sky, CGC, RN, MAD (USDAA Master Agility Dog) and we are working toward her ADCH (USDAA Agility Dog Champion) and her RA (Rally Advanced). Depending on how quickly she completes those titles we may go for an RE or RAE or switch into "real" competition obedience and I'm toying with getting her UKC coursing titled.

    Kestrel is Stardog's It Happens, BH (intro IPO obedience title), RN, DockDogs Regional Master. We are currently working toward his IPO1 (hopefully this fall!), RA, AD (USDAA Agility Dog), and DockDogs Regional Elite titles. Further off are additional titles in IPO, USDAA agility, AKC Rally, DockDogs, and possibly UKC coursing and some flavor of competition obedience.

    Aeri is just Aerten van Sinova. We are currently working toward her BH, RN, DockDogs Regional Senior titles. Future goals include an IPOIII for sure and as many titles in DockDogs, AKC Rally, agility, competition obedience, coursing, and conformation as we can get. ;)

    Snipe is just Stardog's Landmonster. We are currently working on skills for agility and dock diving and our title goals center around those two sports primarily. I may also work with her towards a BH just for the heck of it, too.

    Riley was Rebelstar Summer Sweet Boy TDX CGC TDInc.
    So he had his Tracking Dog Excellent title (TDX). That one I am the Most proud of!!! It was a Lot of hard work, but my boy finally did it! We were close to trialing for his CT/VST (the final, hardest test) before he died. He got his CGC a long time ago, and was a registured therapy dog with Therapy Dogs Inc.

    "New Guy" I am hoping to rack up a few letters with too. ;) Namely his Champion title (Ch.), all the tracking titles (TD, TDX, VST/CT), and a few obedience titles. Anything else would be great, but those are my goals. Oh, and CGC, but I expect all of my dogs to pass that manners test.

    Elsie has none, yet, but the goal (if everything goes according to plan) is to start working on her CD this summer, and we hope to be ready to try for her TD in the fall/winter.

    Meg has her CGC, some CPE level 3 titles, her Novice AKC jumpers and standard titles, and, most importantly, her PDCH/P-ADCH (USDAA Performance Agility Dog Champion). I may try to go for bronze titles in a few of the classes we really like (she's not far off in snooker, jumpers, standard), and may try to get her Tournament Masters title (she's one team Q away from that), but we are pretty much done chasing titles! Oh, and there is a local AKC trial in July we may go to and try to finish up her open titles there.

    Gusto will likely start trialing next winter. I'll do mostly USDAA with him as well.

    Auggie is two away from his MXP and one away from his MJP, so the AXP and AJP will be dropped in favor of those. Probably soon. I think the MJP is coming next week. MXP may be a while; unless he gets both next weekend, the next trial we are in after that is in July... so hard to say.
    While at the trial we will also be trying to get his next two legs to bump the RN to RA.

    Payton is also going to take his crack at two legs towards his RN in July. We'll start agility stuff at some point. Probably not until late fall or maybe next spring, it all depends. I dunno if I'll put the CGC on him, I sorta think it's a small waste of money... Auggie only has his because the club was holding CGC tests for free during a Responsible Dog Owner event. ;P

    Pepper... um, well, I dunno. Even if she were here with me I dunno. She's just Pepper. That's okay. <3

    Logan has RA, URO1 and CA titles, and HIC, CGC, and TT which aren't *really* titles but I still stick them in. His next title will hopefully be BN, but I'm also planning on CAX and beyond, CD, URO2/URO3, and possibly RE if I can get myself back into AKC rally (I really don't have much desire at this point, I love UKC). And of course we'll work on his UKC and AKC champion, he's currently got 25 points in UKC and 2 points in AKC


    Gavroche has RA and URO1 titles and his CGC. I'm hoping to get hid CA title soon, and we'll continue to work on lure coursing and long as he enjoys it, so CAX and beyond if we're lucky. Aside from that I don't know that I'll go for more titles with him. I have been considering some agility but I'm still undecided.

    Keira and Dance both have their CGN certificates. Not titles, but as close to titles as they have, haha. Dance will hopefully have her RN this year though. She almost got it last year but I screwed up. She just needs one more leg.

    After that, I would love to get more Rally titles and also some Obedience titles, but not sure if that'll ever happen. I'm going to keep trying, but she's spooked by judges following in the rings (and won't do a SFE), so it's not going to happen anytime soon. And if it never does, that's fine too. But I would like to get more titles if possible.

    Lately I've been feeling like getting Keira into both Rally and Obedience and putting a couple titles on her too in each venue. She needs a lot more training, but we'll see. I'm going to try to get her back into Agility soon too. Not sure if we'll ever get any Agility titles, but that'd be nice if we ever did progress to that point. She's a challenge for me to train, but I want to try.

    And Ripley has nothing. He's awaiting registration (which'll hopefully happen by the summer). I might try Rally and Obedience with him too eventually, but right now the girls are my focus. He could very easily get his RN at minimum though, so if he's ever registered, I will probably do at least that. He's pretty nearly ready for a CD also. He knows more and is more precise than either Keira or Dance. He's not cut out for Agility though. I worry he'd hurt himself as he's such a clutz.

    I don't really have huge title goals, though. If they happen, they happen. But if they don't, not a big deal. One day I'll probably get a dog with serious aspirations for titling and trying out different things. Dance was supposed to be that dog, but her people issues keep getting in the way. And the Dobes I thought would be fun to title, but that was never a big goal with them.

    I would like to start trailing by the fall/winter in agility, but who the hell knows if that will ever actually happen :p
    I'm pretty okay with him never having any titles at this point.

    Juno has her CGC and that's all I care about! I have no desire to compete in anything.

    None, and we have no desire to get any :)

    I don't know what half of them are anyway!

    Daisy has her RA and a CGC certificate. We would've gone for her RE, but she was diagnosed with intervertebral disc disease, and I'm afraid to make her jump anymore. I'd like to continue work towards CD & TD with her, but funds are low so she's currently just enjoying the sun :)

    Liz has her GRCH (UKC grand champion for coonhound bench shows), but that was done before I even got her. I really like her prospects for the obedience & rally rings, and I plan on getting her UKC altered conformation champion title this year. She's my only dog who has had a ton of agility classes, but I'm not sure we'll ever compete unless we just do a tunneling class, because that's her favorite.

    Rage is the resident moron... she has points towards UKC CH, WCH, and FCH (that's conformation, water racing & field trialing, for coonhounds), CCH (regular all breed conformation) & has run a successful lure course her first time out. Really I'm just going to do everything I can with her, but I imagine CCH will be her first title...

    Every time I see the thread title, I read "titles" as "titties" and laugh. Made my morning that much better

    I was going to mention that, too. :) The CGC is an award, which is why the AKC would let mix breeds earn it for all those years before they accepted mixed breeds in performance events.

    Caleb has his RN. I'd like to continue in Rally as far as we can, but it all depends on what he does at our next trial (which isn't until July). If I can get the funds together to register us, I'd like to try to get at least an NW1 on him, too (first level Nosework title). I might even bite the bullet and start competing in traditional obedience. We might possibly hit the UKC obedience & rally rings, too.

    Since we're including awards/certificates, Caleb has his CGC, too.
