He has earned multiple sporting group placements, is a group winner, consistent national rankings, 7 owner handler Best in Shows, was #1 Owner Handled Sussex for the 2015, 2016 point seasons, and he was the #2 Sussex Spaniel in 2017, earning a coveted Westminster Invitation. He has been shown on a very limited basis, and we have never done more than 20 (total) shows a year.
Mav's versatility accolades are significant for the breed. He finished his CH, CD, RN, RA, RE and six legs of his RAE all in the same year. In 2017, he earned his Barn Hunt and Advanced Trick Dog titles. He is currently prepping for Hunt Tests, his Open CDX obedience debut, training for agility, and we are both avid Barn Hunters!
Maverick is extremely smart, very affectionate and enjoys going places to meet new people. He is fascinated by children and loves to give them kisses and be petted by them. This beautiful dog is also extremely sound, and has OFA certifications for joints, eyes, heart, PDP and BAER hearing.
