Nothing could have prepared us for Esto's latest Conquest.........
Thursday was yet another Bank Holiday here in France and we travelled north to just outside of Paris to the Chateau Flins sur Seine where the 41st National D'Elevage Championship Show of the Dobermann Club de France was being held in the grounds.
Dita and Esto were both Entered in their respective Open Classes-Adult Female Black and Adult Male Black as they are now 3 yrs and 2 yrs old this year.
The French Title of Champion is one of the hardest to achieve in Europe within the Dobermann Breed as it comprises of both Beauty and Working Qualifications.There are only two chances per year to gain the CACS-One of such requirement awards for the title-at the National Show & the Championnat Show.
Esto not only won his Class with an Excellent A Grading-the highest achievable but went on to challenge all the other class winners to win the CACS! To say we are thrillaed is an absolute understatement
