What Does a Dog Title Mean,
A dog title is just a piece of paper. Just a brag. Just a small set of initials
at the end of your dog’s name… But those initials serve as a tribute
to the dog that bears them. They stand as a testament
to the intelligence, soundness, and cooperative nature of the dog. They say that
your dog was a good dog; a dog who loved you enough to work at things that please
A title is a reflection on your skill as a trainer and a testament to
your commitment to your dog. It says that you loved your dog enough to engage
her, teach her, and help her achieve a goal. That you believed in
your dog, even when nobody else did—even when she did not believe in
herself—and that in the end your faith was justified. In a world where
dogs are too often neglected and abused, a title says that your dog was greatly
loved, and loved greatly in return.
And after the last beat of her heart, the title
remains as an enduring memorial:
an honor to a deserving friend.
