Tarascon
Pyrenean Mountain Dogs

The Show Scene
Our most successful show dog to date is Ch Taracon Coeur de Lyon.
As a Baby Puppy he began to win at Group and in Show level.
At age 15 months he was judged Best in Show at the Pedigree Pal National
Dog Show by Michelle Billing of the USA. The only Pyrenean to win this prestigious show. He is still the only NZ bred Pyrenean to win Best in Show
All Breeds at Championship Show level.
He has retired from the show ring but still makes the odd appearances.
Merlot at age 5 had 150 CC's.

Best in Show 1995 Pal national Dog Show

Ch Tarascon Belleruche, a litter sister of Ch Tarascon Coeur de Lyon. At her first show she was awarded Best Baby Puppy of Group. She went on to win many awards including Best of Group (Open) before retiring from the show ring. Tragically Leah died suddenly just before her sixth birthday.

Ch Tarascon Mistique is the only Pyrenean to gain a group placing at a "Classic" Dog Show. This under Canadian Judge Mr Lesley Rogers. Returned to the show ring after a break for motherhood Misty is still doing well and often giving the boys a run for their money.

Sire of the above dogs is Ch Ariege Arlaten. His show career has been long indeed. Yoda has many awards to his credit including Best of Group (Championship Show). At age 9 he still appears at specialty shows and also in the odd stake class. Something he thoroughly enjoys.

Ch Tarascon Bongo Bear owned by Liz Lillie was only going to be shown as a Baby Puppy for socialisation. Liz was bitten by the bug and is still showing Lukan now almost 5. He has had a most successful show career to date including a Reserve Best in Show (Open). Lukan was Reserve of Breed behind his older brother at the 1999 National Dog Show. Seen here showing off his prowess at obedience.

At the 2000 National Dog show she was judged Reserve Best Bitch at age 16 months and in November 2000 was Reserve Best in Show at the Pyrenean Mountain Dog Specialty Show.

Ch Tarascon Mistral Maker, also one of Misty's girls appears regularly in the show ring and like her sister Ayla has recently gained her Champion title. In January 2001 Shay-leah was judged Reserve best of Group and Junior of Group at a Ashburton Open Show
