More new Champions

Acostar has two new Champions and Skyy has officially joined our breeding program!

Acostar Oshkosh Bgosh Tanaki “Carter” achieved his AKC Champion title in October of 2018 in just 3 weekends of showing. He finished with a total of 19 points and 4 major wins. Respected judge Mr. James Moses awarded Carter a Best of Winners for a 5 point major to finish on the first day of the final weekend. Carter went on to win Select Dog on the last day for his first point toward his Grand Championship. Carter is taking a bit of a break from showing but he’ll be strutting his stuff at the PWDCA National this September in Greeley CO! Here are some photos of Carter’s accomplishments in the USA.

Acostar Whoa Nelly Commocean “Nelly”, this lovely Carter daughter, completed her CKC Championship in March at the Ontario Breeders Association shows in Lindsay ON. She won Best of Winners on the Saturday for 2 points from judge Ben Wasylyshen and then on the Sunday Nelly won Best of Breed over a special for her final points from judge Donald Mahoney. Nelly is just a couple of months away from being old enough to have her hips evaluated. If she receives a passing grade we will be very excited to have her join our breeding program. Here are some photos of Nelly and the terrific judges from her final weekend showing in Canada.

We couldn’t be more happy to announce that Acostar’s Home Sweet Home “Skyy” has officially joined our breeding program! She turned 2 in December and had her hips evaluated in January. She received a grade of EXCELLENT!!!! She is yet another Tia puppy to receive an excellent hip grading from OFA. She will now join her half siblings Carter and Rosa in the legacy of Acostar. She will also begin showing in the US once she matures a bit more. Here are some photos from Skyy’s show career so far.

2018 Acostar Waterdog Champions

The first half of 2018 has seen two new Champions titled to Acostar dogs!

Acostar’s Home Sweet Home “Skyy”

First to achieve her CH title is Acostar’s Home Sweet Home “Skyy”. She accomplished this in just 3 weekends of showing. Her first weekend out at the Champlain Dog Club shows, she won a Winners Bitch/Best of Opposite, Best of Winners/ Best of Breed and two Winners Bitch/ Best of Winners.

Her second weekend, at Club Canin Rive-Sud de Montreal Skyy won three Winners Bitch and on Best of Breed over a special.

And in her final weekend showing at the Arnprior Canine Association shows, she got her last points from winning Winners Bitch 3 times! We are most grateful to Linda Thompson and Joe Panaro for their expert handling, grooming and assistance and care.

Here are some photos of Skyy winning Best of Breed and Winners Bitch:

Acostar’s Bobcaygeon “Hey Jude”

Although we are super happy with Skyy and her accomplishments, the real rock star this spring was Acostars Bobcaygeon “Hey Jude”. He started showing as a baby puppy and brought home a Best Baby Puppy in Group from his very first show and it just went up from there!

To list all of his wins will make this long update even longer, so here’s a summary:

Hey Jude won 16 Best of Breeds (for some of these he was the only dog), two Best Puppies in Group, one adult Group 3rd, three adult Group 4ths, and — his crowning achievement — a Best Puppy In Show! All of this was achieved before the age of 10 months!!

Here are some photos of Jude:

Jude’s first job in life, however, is to be an outstanding assistance dog to his wonderful owner Mrs. Grace McDonald, so he is going to take a break from showing and possibly return when he is older.

Hey Jude is the first Champion puppy from Acostar’s Newfie Calibogus “Cali” and the second from Acostar Oshkosh Bigosh Tanaki “Carter” and we couldn’t be prouder of this completely home bred boy.

Very many thanks go to Carolyne Cybulsky for her expert handling and impeccable grooming of Jude and to Grace and Wayne for being his caregivers, taxi drivers and basically his world.

Weekend of Success!

ROSA Winners Bitch & Best of Opposite

ROSA Best of Winners & New Champion

Acostar has a new CKC CH!

On Sunday May 28th Acostar Stella Rosa Red Wine “Rosa” acquired exactly the 10 points to achieve her CKC Champion title. It was an especially touching moment as she finished her title in Thetford Mines at the Societe Canine de Thetford shows. Judge Fred Dewsbury awarded her Best Of Winners for 3 points. She was expertly handled by Linda Thompson and huge thanks go to Linda and her ring side help Joe Panero.

Rosa is just 18 months old and has a preliminary hip evaluation of excellent and is genetically normal for all other health certifications . She is a littermate sister to Carter and will be joining our breeding program once she turns 2 and receives a passing grade for her hips.





TIA New CD Title

Tia Achieves her CD Title!

Rosa and Carter’s mother, Elkrun Acostar Dream Come True “Tia” was not to be outdone by her kids. Also on Sunday May 28th, she achieved her CD title by obtaining 3 qualifying scores on each of her three first attempts in the novice obedience ring. Not only that but she won 2nd in the first class and 1st in the subsequent two classes and her scores were all in the 180’s. This is truly an amazing accomplishment and we could not be more proud of her. Tia needs to achieve her Working Water Dog title in order to obtain her PWDCA Gold Register of Merit which we hope will happen this water season.

Acostar has a new CKC Champion!

Carter Best Puppy in Group

Carter New Champion & Group Second










In December 2015, Tia had a lovely litter from which we kept two puppies for our breeding program. Carter “Acostar Oshkosh Bgosh Tanaki” was the pick puppy and he has been living and showing out in British Columbia. Before he turned a year old he had won two Best Puppy in Groups and he finished his championship in style winning Best of Breed and a Group second. He finished his weekend of showing with an additional Group third. Carter loves showing so much and he is still so young that he is going to continue to show and we are excited to see how far his star will rise!

Carter’s sister Rosa “Acostar Stella Rosa Red Wine” will be heading to the show ring in April.
