About the Pack

The Tilburg pack currently is eight members strong but only three of those are canines. Rogue (PACH2 Kamgaard Katch the Wave RAE MXP6 MXPS MPJ6 MJPS PAX2 CGCA TKI) has recently retired from both the agility and rally rings. He finished off his rally career with two back to back High In Trials for his RAE. Then to make his final agility runs sweeter he won the Norwegian Elkhound breed medallion at the AKC Agility Invitational.

Gnocchi (MACH2 Ninkasi’s Oh No She Didn’t RE MX MXJ CGCA TKI) debuted in rally and agility at the beginning of 2018 has landed herself in the top 5 for her breed in AKC agility numerous times and been invited to the AKC Agility Invitational twice. She retired from the rally ring with her Excellent title and finds rules such as no noise from the dog to be ridiculous. She prefers the agility ring where she can talk whenever she wants.

Saffron (Ninkasi’s She’s Got Expensive Taste) joined the family in 2020 and appears to have all of the work drive of her Aunt (Gnocchi). She already is working on her rally novice title and will be debuting in agility in December 2022.

Gone but always in our hearts
In 2017 we lost our wonderful elder statesman, Grendel (pictured at the top of the page). Christine accomplished many dream goals with Grendel at her side and he had plenty of titles to prove it (PACH Cimmarian J-G Beowulf’s Bane RE MX MXJ MXP4 MXPB MJP4 MJPB OF RI RO CGC). Grendel was a wonderful ambassador for the breed and will always be missed.

Christine’s first agility and obedience dog was a Siberian Husky named CousCous (CousCous von Tilburg CD RE AXJ AX WPD). CousCous was a lover of fun and always made Christine laugh at the end of the day. She loved snow and treats in that order.
