Lewis' debut in the show ring was a winning one; he came home with the BIG orange ribbon. He earned Best Baby Puppy in Show under Brazilian judge Gutenberg Soares at the Barrie Kennel & Obedience Club show on August 5, 2019.
Lewis earned a Best Baby Puppy in Group in his second time in the ring at the Oakville and District Kennel Club show in September 2019.
Lewis debuted in the "big dog" show ring at 6.5 months old at the Georgina Kennel Club show, November 2019. He earned his first 2 points by going First, Winner's Dog, Best of Winner's, Best Puppy in Breed and Best Bred By Exhibitor in Breed.
Lewis returned to the show ring in March 2020, and earned 6 points in 3 shows, by going Best of Breed over multiple specials, and a Best of Opposite (again over specials). He also earned his Canine Good Neighbour at the same show. Lewis will be back in the ring in Fall 2021 on the hunt for those last two points!
Lewis has discovered the sport of Sprinter and loves it! He earned his Novice Sprinter (NS) in 2020, and his Sprinter (S) and Advanced Sprinter (AS) in 2021.
Lewis fittingly completed his final 2 points required for his Canadian Championship at the Georgina Kennel Club show by going Winner's Dog on Saturday under Judge Cheryl Paterson and Winner's Dog and Best of Opposite Sex over a special under Judge Janet Lobb.
Most of Lewis' time is spent being a much adored pet and companion to Tracey and her daughter Nadine. Lewis is exploring all kinds of different sports with his owners.
