The family name can carry a guy only so far, and then he has to prove himself. And Henry has certainly done that! Trained and handled exclusively by his amateur field trialing owner, and with limited AKC field trialing, Henry was awarded a Derby Stake Judges Award of Merit and a Qualifying Stake Reserve Judges Award of Merit. It was after Henry and Dennis left field trialing and began training/trialing in agility that Henry proved his talent, spirit, and speed would transcend two of canine sports most challenging venues. Henry flew through the ranks of AKC agility titles. In less than a year of limited trialing, he was running AKC’s highest levels of agility courses and had earned AKC’s Excellent Standard title (AX). AKC’s Excellent Jumpers title (AXJ) came shortly thereafter.
Labs haven’t always been thought of as premier agility dogs, but please don’t mention that to Henry. He seems proud to be THE Lab who proved otherwise.
Henry is not a dog to be satisfied with merely getting ‘r done. And you should know, Henry’s competition in the 24-inch jump height included dogs of many breeds – including the so-called “agility” breeds. In less than a year of limited trialing, Henry was competing in AKC’s “Excellent B” (now called “Master”) division, among seasoned dogs campaigning for championship and national qualifying points. Even at this highest level, from his first QQ, Henry placed FIRST 61 times as he completed AKC’s Master Agility Championship (MACH) requirements January, 2012. In February, 2012, Henry moved into AKC’s Preferred division. Henry has qualified for AKC’s National Agility Championships 3 consecutive years – Virginia in 2011, Nevada in 2012, and Tulsa OK in 2013 – where he won the AKC 20″ Preferred National Agility Championship.
If a picture is really worth a thousand words, we’ve already said enough about Henry. Please, don’t settle for the notion that Labrador conformation and stunning good looks are incompatible with speed and drive. Simply put, Henry proves otherwise.
