Gaia was my keeper from my Punky x Nikki litter. I was planning on keeping a boy, but this little Punkette has so much personality (just like her mum) that I couldn't let her go. I will show her, but with her sense of adventure I think her future will be in dog sports.
Gaia gained her Championship title on 13 Jan 19, aged 11 1/2months with a lovely 15pt Best of Breed & was run for Best in Group.
Not shown a great deal in 2019 and 2020, Gaia is well on her way to her Grand Ch title, with many nice wins under Hound specialists, including Runner Up Best in Hound Groups and Class in Shows. ***Grand Championship title gained Oct 2023**. This year has been an awesome year in the showring for Gaia.
2021 has seen Gaia start Agility training and she is doing really well. I hope the two of us will be ready to trial towards the end of year. Gaia also has had her first try at lure coursing and loves it. Hopefully she continues to love it and I might be able to fit in some trials before the year is out.
2022 was a great year for Gaia in the show ring. She was awarded Bitch CC and Runner up Best of Breed at Canberra Royal under a Hound Specialist judge. She also was placed 1st in her class in all three RR Specialties attended (under Aust RR Breeder judges), resulting in her being unbeaten in her class at 6 consecutive RR Specialities that she has been entered in (all under overseas or Australian RR Breeder judges).
*** Gaia wins Runner Up Best in Show at the 63rd RR speciality show (Sydney) under breeder Judge Mrs Linda Costa (qld). Her critique “A Correctly proportioned and balanced bitch who showed moderation in all things. She has a lovely head and expression, good bone and feet and moved extremely well. To me, she is of a classic ridgeback style. Hard to find any glaring flault”.
Gaia also trains in Scent Works. she loves it and is doing very well. We attended our first trial on the 22nd Sept 2023 and Gaia gained passes in Novice Interiors and Novice Exteriors.
Gaia was successful in gaining her Endurance Test Title in May 2023, completing the 20 km with easy although some boredom.
We attended our first Tricks Trail on the 22n July 2023. She gained her first pass towards her Starters Trick Dog title. She gained her 2nd pass at the Cooma trial 3 Dec 23 and pass number 3 at the BDOC trial on 13 Jan 2024. That qualifies her for her Trick Dog Starters title .
Lure Coursing is a passion of Gaia's and this year she finally started to do it properly. She gained her Junior Courser (JC) title in August.
*** Gaia was the No 1 Rhodesian Ridgeback in Australia for 2023 in the Dogzonline Breed Challenge pointscore.
Hopefully Gaia may become a mum in 2024.
