On June 3rd, Orso and I are heading to Dayton, Ohio for the 2nd Annual SACCI (Society in America for Cane Corso Italiano) National Dog Shows. According to SACCI, this event “…will be the largest gathering of Cane Corso enthusiasts in the United States in 2011. With five conformation shows including four Italian Judges and ten Working Events plus breed seminars there will be tons of fun for everyone.” The event will be held on June 5th and June 6th and from what we heard through the grapevine, there will be over 70 Corsi there!
Over the course of 2 days, there will be five conformation dog shows in which Orso will be competing with professional handler Ashley Cuzzolino, who also handles GR CH PrideNJoyz Afterglow. The judges for the shows, who include four Italian judges, are all very well-respected in the Cane Corso community. The judges are as follows: Dr. Pierluigi Scalia, Mr. Danilo Giorgio, Mr. Daniel Rosa, Mr. Roberto Giannuli and Mr. Alessandro Bigozzi.
Along with the conformation shows, the 2-day event will have plenty of working events that Orso is entered in, specifically Working Dog Evaluation (WDE), Deterrent Dog (DD), CAL1, Weight Pulling and Lunge. It will be Orso’s first time participating in a working event and we know it’s going to be a wonderful experience.
Needless to say, we are very excited about attending this event because it will be more than your traditional dog show beauty pageant. We get to see Orso participate in some very cool working events and demonstrate to us what he was bred to do – WORK!
