Clancy — the inspiration for Kees Of Dog’s Delight

10 Dec

Clancy holding flowersClancy has truly opened up my eyes to the potential that all dogs have that most humans aren’t aware of.  My main mission with my Kees Of Dog’s Delight blog is to encourage all dog owners to enrich their dog’s life, which in turn enriches the dog owner’s life through socialization and the benefits you gain from the strong bond you create with your dog.  Though I love all types of dogs, cats, and just all animals, Clancy has ignited a passion in me for the Keeshond, so from time to time you will see more Kees oriented posts, especially while the Keeshond community works on rescuing 60 + Keeshonden from one of the worst puppy mills in the U.S.  (Learn more at

Clancy and I have met so many wonderful people together just by being out through our various activities.  Clancy brings so much joy to everyone that crosses his path and has many fans who would like to see more of him.  Since we do go to so many places and do so many things together (in various States, too!), there will be a new category of the blog dedicated to the Clancy fans!  (Look for the category “Clancy – My Keeshond” for just fun Clancy updates, pics and videos.)  NEW:  Clancy has his own Facebook Page!  Follow Clancy’s adventures, see him do tricks on #TrickTuesday and cute retro pics of Clancy on #ThrowbackThursday by “Liking” Clancy, the fluffy trick dog – Keeshond on Facebook!

So, here’s Clancy!  The UKC Altered Champion, Rally Obedience level 3, United Junior Jumper (1st UKC dock diving titled Keeshond), AKC Companion Dog Excellent, Rally Advanced Excellent, Dock Junior (1st AKC dock diving titled Keeshond), Advanced Canine Good Citizen, AKC Therapy Dog titled, Ultimate Air Dogs AND North American Diving Dogs Dock Junior titled, and the first CHAMPION Trick Dog titled Keeshond!  *More training for other titles are always in progress!

Be your dog’s best friend! ~ SSB  

Enjoy and thank you for visiting!

    Definitely enjoyed reading your blog, as I believe it’s a great introduction to those who would like more insight to Rally Obedience. As I was reading, I couldn’t help but notice that the course looked very, very familiar. When I looked closer, I realized it was the same course my westie and I did in the Novice class at the AKC Rally Nationals too. Small world, huh? Anyway, I wanted to comment about your statement that the dog is sitting in heal position at the beginning of the course. Please note that the dog is not required to sit, it may stand.

    Keep up the blog and continue to inspire others to the sport. Hopefully, I will see you & your beautiful Keeshond, Clancy, next year at Purina Farms in Missouri. Until then, happy rallying!

      Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read my Rally blog, Donna! You may be in my picture on here of everyone walking that Novice course at the RNC! 🙂

      I appreciate you pointing out that it’s not necessary to “sit” at the start of the course in Rally. I went ahead and added that in. (I always have Clancy sitting, so I didn’t think about adding that.) Keep Rallying on with your Westie! I hope our paths will cross again!
