The journey began on 12th March 2004 when the first Papillon litter of three boys (two red sables & white - Henri and William - and a black & white – Wesley) were born at Waiwilta. Henri was selected as the future hope of the family and his first experience of competition came at just eight weeks of age when he attended his first tracking trial (as a spectator of course) helping to set up the bush tracks at Haddon, Victoria.


 What a unique representative of the Papillon breed Henri has become, demonstrating the versatility and competiveness of the breed amongst the top echelon of ANKC competition across multiple disciplines. Henri achieved his Australian Champion title with the majority of challenges either being Best of Breed or Runner up Best of Breed.  His limited show career incorporated multiple Exhibit In Group and “In Show” class awards, both at All Breeds and Speciality Championship shows under local and international specialist judges. He is also a multi “Best in Trial” winner, again in both All Breeds Open Agility trials and Restricted to Height Agility trials in Agility, Jumping and Games.

He is the second Dual Champion Papillon in Australia (his mother being the first) and the first and only Triple Champion Papillon.  Tracking was a long drawn out  process over five years due to my tracking judging appointments and Henri, upon gaining his Tracking Champion title, has gone on to Track & Search competition, again following in his mothers (first titled TSD and TSDX dog in Australia – all breeds) paw prints by gaining his first TSD title in one season. He has qualified for his TSD Test 4  with a very good grading so far this season and has two more tests to complete for his TSDX title, currently the highest award in Track & Search competition in Australia.



 Henri’s agility career has been a huge learning curve for us both with Henri expressing his frustration with the handler mistakes quite vocally. Limited agility experience and access to training facilities meant a lot had to be learnt “on the job” so to speak at trials and I thank the agility community for their generosity in sharing their knowledge, advise, encouragement and tips freely and in particular Jennette Stiles for sharing her unequalled dog training knowledge.

With the introduction of the separate height Agility Champion title in July 2011 Henri’s points were calculated and he had accumulated 180 agility points and 260 jumping points of the 500 required in each section. The remaining jumping points came quickly and by the end of October 2011 sufficient had been achieved. Agility points were coming along nicely until the wheels fell of the cart when a back injury put Henri on restricted exercise for some weeks and then on his return to competition in 2012 a strong case of nerves struck his handler preventing qualifications until the 2012 Easter Agility Dog Club trials. Henri needed four, first place qualifications in agility to secure his title – four agility classes were on offer over the weekend. After his final run on day two, Henri had gained a total of 100 agility points being first in all four Master Agility classes in the 200 category and overall placed in the top seven for each run culminating in an Agility Champion 200 Title and a Triple Champion Title (Conformation, Tracking and Agility 200) on 08/04/2012. I believe this makes Henri the highest qualified Papillon over multiple ANKC disciplines in Australia with a total to date of twenty-nine titles and counting……
