What's New in 2023
October 28 - 29, 2023
I brought Brava and Never up to Lowell Massachusetts to show them in conformation at the 603 Misfits Doberman Club's "OkDoberFest". Brava was presented in the Champion class and won her class in two of the three shows, while Never, his first time in the ring, was presented in the puppy class. Never passed the puppy temperament test on day one and was best opposite puppy in all three shows that followed. This was a small but well-organized event put on by a new club. It was a great opportunity for Never to spend some quality time with his boss!
July 15 - 16, 2023
Brava competed in the performance class at this years UDC regional specialty hosted by the Upstate Doberman Club of NY. The highlight of our weekend was on Sunday when Brava won her class and then became the winners bitch in a very large entry. With this victory, Brava is now a UDC-Champion.

Brava received the third and final leg towards the Companion Dog title this weekend when she scored a 198 in Novice B under Judge Karen Wrey at the Staten Island Companion Dog Training Club's all-breed Obedience Trial. This result was good enough for a 1st place finish and a NEW TITLE. She is now:
Livonija Baronesa Costa Brava, CD, WAC
On Sunday, in a bumped entry, we again placed first with a 196. And now the real work begins as Brava and I start our journey in Open.
April 15 - 16, 2023
Brava earned her first two qualifying scores in Novice B at this weekend's all-breed Obedience trial held by the Staten Island Companion Dog Training Club. We placed second on both days with a very nice score of 198 under judge Frank Cardillino.
What's New in 2018
April 24 - 28, 2018
It was a mixed bag for Brava and I at the 2018 UDC National in Sedalia Missouri. She fared reasonably well in conformation, receiving two CC's towards her championship, and she passed the adult temperament test in convincing fashion as well. We also participated in the DPCA's Working Aptitude Evaluation. Brava received the Working Aptitude Certificate for her efforts. Unfortunately our performance in obedience was disappointing. Three trials, three NQ's.
What's New in 2016
August 20 - 21, 2016
The 2016 UDC Northeastern Conformation Regional was held this weekend in Shaftsbury Vermont. Brava was shown in the puppy class, and she became Best Opposite Puppy on both days. Pompey was shown in the Champion Class. It was a stressful weekend for Pompey, and after a poor showing on day one, I pulled his entry on day two.
April 19 - 23, 2016
An exciting week of highs and lows at the 2016 UDC National in Medina Ohio where Pompey earned his second and third career "High in Trial" awards at this prestigious National event under AKC judge Catherine Thompson, scoring a 195 and a 196.5 out of Novice B. After last years grand success, our results this year in conformation were slightly disappointing. Even though Pompey was the winner of the Champion Class on both days he was unable to come away Best of Breed. Perhaps I could have had Pompey in better show condition, and better prepared for the tough competition a National event attracts. Little Brava was exhibited in her very first show and presented herself beautifully. She placed second in the puppy class on both days and passed the puppy temperament test, nipping her boss the entire way through.

Pompuschk scored a 197 today in Novice B at the DPCA Nationals in Lancaster Pa under judge John Landis. This result was good enough for first place in a large entry of 11 Dobermans. We missed High in Trial by a mere 1/2 point!
September 27, 2015
Today Pompuschk and I scored first place in Novice B with a score of 197.5 under judge Janet Lewis at the DPCA Regional Specialty Obedience Trial. This result was good enough for our first ever "High in Trial", defeating over 40 of the top Dobermans and trainers in the country!
August 22 & 23, 2015
A first place finish for Pompey in the Champion Class on both days at the Vermont Total Doberman Club's Regional Conformation Specialty.
April 14 & 15, 2015
An exciting week at the UDC Nationals in Winchester Kentucky were Pompey received his third and final CC, thereby sufficiently meeting the requirements to become a UDC Champion! To cap off our conformation success, the next day Pompey became the Reserve Winners Dog under breeder/judge Nancy Christensen. Unfortunately, we were not as successful in Obedience. We NQ’d on both days as Pompuschk broke on the honor down on day one and the sit on day two. However, I am so pleased with my boy, who is now a UDC Champion and the RWD at the UDC Nationals!
