| We bought Viggo when he was almost 6 months old. In his very first show, he placed VP1 under SV Judge Helmut
König. I enrolled in puppy obedience classes where Viggo excelled and earned his CGC Certificate. We had great
hopes for him and planned to send him to several shows during the first year and then on to Germany for his training
and titles. Unfortunately things didn't go as planned. We re-adjusted our plans and decided to work on his training
and titling on our own.
In the summer of 2005, Viggo earned his AD and an SG rating. We then had to put off training due to family
medical problems. After about a year off from our training, with encouragement and help from several people, I
continued to work with Viggo. We earned his BH the fall of 2006, his TR1 the fall of 2007. I had been training
Viggo in all three phases of Schutzhund. He had very strong drive for tracking. We earned his AKC CD title in
2010. He earned his titles as a HOT (Handler Owner Trained) dog.
Viggo did not have the qualities that I felt was required for a breed worthy male so I had him neutered at 2 1/2
years of age. I later found out that he had Pannus, which is a (some believe genetic) eye disease. He also showed
symptoms of EPI. Viggo passed away in my arms on June 7th, 2011. He was our family pet. I miss you fella.
