ANNUAL AKC ROYAL CANIN DOG SHOW IN ORLANDO FLORIDA,

DECEMBER 2020

After a long COVID-19 break, since the Westminster Kennel Club Show in February, we have stayed away from Dog Show events, both,  conformation shows and sport trials . However, after  weighing all the pros and cons we have decided to enter  the Annual AKC Royal Canin National dog show in Orlando Florida  in December of 2020,  the  consensus of two have concluded that we owe to lift the quality of the Pumi ring at the AKC National by entering our dogs.

Anka has completed her Gold Grand Championship and has won BOB and GROUP 3 at the final of the NOH Championship.

Great Success at the Annual Royal Canin AKC National in Orlando, FL. Great Way to Finish an Extraordinary Year 

It has been a sweet and memorable  week for our Catskill Pumis at the AKC National in Florida.  Our dogs finished in the ribbons each day in one of the biggest Pumi entries in recent memory.

Catskill Becsi Barsony has won two “Select” placements during the week and has topped her performance with a “Best of Opposite Sex”  placement Sunday, at the Official AKC National Show.  She has also finished her Bronze Grand Championship. Barsony has had an extraordinary year with several new herding, agility and lure coursing titles as well.

Catskill Csucsai Csinszka has earned  “Select” placement at the Annual Herding Specialty Show of the Sunshine State Herding Association shown by Maria Arechaederra.   Sunday she has earned  “Award of Excellence”  with Maggie Lundquist, at the AKC National, with one of the highest Pumi entries in the breed’s history.

This year, Orlando has been a bittersweet experience for Catskill Apacatancos Anka. With an unfortunate series of registration mistakes, Anka, has missed most of the Orlando shows, including the official National that she has won twice in previous years, (BOB).  Luckily, her entry was valid for the prestigious Regional Pumi Specialty Show where she has won Best of Breed.

Seven months old Catskill Masni has joined the big girls to Florida. Her debut performance was outstanding at such a big show. Masni has also earned her first paycheck by winning her class in the puppy sweepstake.

On our way back home from Florida to upstate NY, we’ve been chased by a growing winter storm,  however, we managed get home without any incident. Now we are taking a break until the rest of the year.

Watch for Westminster, we will be there in February, 2020. Happy Holidays everyone.

Catskill Pumik In the Spotlight At the Pumi National, “Pumifest 2018,” in Pennsylvania

For this year’s breed national, we have changed our objective and instead of conformation, we’ve decided focused on agility and herding . Our goal was to showcase the versatility of our dogs and remind Pumi aficionados  that the Pumi is a herding breed with a great affinity to dog sports. “Pumifest 2018” was held in Pennsylvania this year and the event has appeared to be the best place to demonstrate the instinct, drive and high training level of our dogs.

Catskill Becsi Barsony and Kaffogo Agyag, have delivered outstanding and exciting performances in agility and herding. Barsony has Q’d four times and won four first places in Novice agility (JWW and Standard) Thursday. Sunday, she also finished her herding PT (Pre-trial) title in the morning and it qualified her to enter in “Started A – Sheep I” in the afternoon. She Qd and completed the trial with  “Reserve High in Trial.”  Agyag mastered both of his runs and earned “High in Trial” in the morning and in the afternoon too.

Thank you Super Catskill Pumik, you’ve shined again! We are so proud of you two!

Barsony has Qd foursomes and placed first four times in Novice JWW and Novice Standard. Not bed for a dog entering first time in AKC agility

                       Beware of Price Gouging…!  

 Important! Please do not support puppy millers by buying pups out of imported pregnant(!) bitches that have been purchased pregnant…(!) overseas and have been imported to the US  simply for making money by selling the pups.

Oh… and you are a fool if you pay more than $2500 for a Pumi pup in 2018, unless your  new Pumi comes with at least two cup holders…

Catskill Csucsai Csinszka Group 3 at the “BIG E.”

We’ve had an exciting weekend at the “BIG E” (Eastern States Exposition Center), in West Springfield, MA.  During the four-day show the Catskill Pumis have dropped a pin again on the AKC’s map. I am especially proud of Catskill Csucsai Csinszka who took two BOB and one day a Group 3(!) placement with her new accidental handler, Grame Burdone  (he is a keeper now…)

Graeme and Csinszka clicked immediately and kept improving each day.  They will show together again soon. Thank you Graeme for paying attention for all the details and leading Csinszka to her first Group placement in Variety (Group 3).

Hope to see you all in Orlando Florida!

Catskill Csinszka is full of grace, elegance and poise. one would not think what a tough cookie she can be with the sheep. She's been having an impressive season with some serious results. and

Catskill Csinszka Group 3! Well deserved. We just needed the person who recognizes and able to handle her Mojo... I think that problem has been taken care of. She is built of several wonderful pieces that a handler must be able to balance in harmony like a Calder hanging mobile. Thank you Judge Ms. Joanne (Jan) N.Paulk.
