Blaze U GRCH En Tour’s Trail Blazer of Forest Lakes CGC TKN SPOT-ON

Through my first mentor, I was blessed to gain a second mentor with 30+ years of experience breeding and showing who trusted me with one of her own show prospects. Blaze was bred and raised by En Tour Poodles and arrived at Forest Lakes on a cool autumn day in 2020. He is a happy addition to our little family and has already completed Obedience I and II, earned his Canine Good Citizen title and finished his championship summer 2021. Early in 2022, Blaze also earned his OUTSTANDING Socialized Pet Obedience title and his Novice Trick title. He trains at home in Rally, Agility and Precision Coursing.

Blaze earned his Grand Champion title in May 2022 with a fabulous sweep of all of the amazing gun dogs. He was awarded champion over 4 other champions, Best of Breed over 7 other standard poodles and Gun Dog Group 1 for both shows! Blaze has now retired from the conformation ring to pursue performance sports.

We adore Blaze for his loveable enthusiasm and energy. He is so happy to please and gets very excited to be working with his people and/or tasked with a challenge. He is a complete sweetheart, and gets along with every person and animal he meets. Blaze has very little prey drive, but excels at rally and agility.  

Blaze has a strong pedigree and long apricot lines. We look forward to his excellent future match with Feia.
