Jade finished her CD at the young age of 16 months ranking her 15th in the nation.  She took several yrs off for training..  I brought her back out at the age of  5 but due to serious illness she had to take another year off.  Jade was 7 yrs old when she finished her CDX..   She did it with scores of 190 (3rd place), 194 (1st place), 191 1/2 (2nd place).  Ranking her the #1 obedience akita.. Something else remarkable is she did all this AFTER being diagnosed with Sebaceous Adenitis.
