…… and in SWEDEN :

Yipppppeeeee!!!! Over the moon with the news that our Ludwig ~ 

Int Sh Ch / Dutch / Danish / German & VDH Ch Beethoven

of the Hellacious Acres W'13/ Ben.W '14 won the CC

at the SSRK in Sunne under Judge: Torbjörn Skaarr

and achieved his SWEDISH CHAMPION TITLE too expertly handled by Jennie Andersson during his summer holiday with Dream Max in Sweden .


Thank you immensely Jennie and Jonas and kids for your love , time and devotion to Ludwig and his daugther Lisza xxx

Multi Ch Lizanna of the Hellacious Acres won the reserve CC...

So close for jackpot in making up BOTH with their Swedish titles but still a great day in superb weather!!!

Ludwig wins the Reserve CACIB & Lisza becomes BEST BITCH with the CC, her Swedish Champion Title , the  CACIB & BOS at KC INT show in Tvĺĺker under judge Bo Bengtsson.


We are THRILLED with these FANTASTIC achievements made with our two special precious Goldens and all the work put in by Jennie Andersson and her family on their stay in Sweden at Dream Max to make this dream possible xXx


Some bonus tracking news:

As an extra bonus in Sweden Jenny is very good in training Goldens
in tracking, something she will do at the highest possible level.

To prove that Ludwig and Lisza are not only beautiful and sweet –
Jenny took the challenge to train her Dutch visitors to open class level
in “Viltspar” or “Tracking” which comes down to following a track
of blood over a long distance.

Both Ludwig and Lisza together with Jenny took 3 x firsts in their respective open class tracking test competitions with each ~
and so BOTH gained their Swedish Tracking titles and are now also

Swedish Viltspar Champions’.


Well done Ludwig, Lisza and Jenny.

We are pleased and proud of you all!!
