Meet Hob Nob Heliocentric.
Helo was born on March 5, 2013 at Hob Nob Farm in WA State. He was bred by Janice DeMello.
Helo is a nephew to my Leda.
Heliocentric is defined as: having the sun as the center.
Helo is undoubtedly at the center of my world -- I adore this handsome, clever little fellow.
He is a wonderful, athletic boy who always wants to please and tries his best. Helo has been exclusively trained with Greg Derrett's
(Ultimate Agility) foundation program and nearly all of our handling training has been with Anthony Clarke -- to whom we owe much of our achieved teamwork. Helo already handles like a far more seasoned dog, and is nearly matching Leda on course times. On November 18, 2016 (at only 3 years old) Helo attended his first National competition, the UKI US OPEN in Perry, GA. He made it to the Masters Series Finals and the Speedsteaks Final - placing 2nd!
2017 has been in INCREDIBLE year for Team Helo! Tara and Helo have earned their place on podiums at either regional or national events more than 18 times!!
In September of 2017 - at just 4 years old!- Helo has earned TWO National Champion titles. Helo is the 2017 UKI CANADA OPEN 22" Speedstakes Nation Champion and Last Chance Master Series National Champion.
Helo is proof (once again) that a solid training foundation + hard work + consistency = success!
I can't wait to see where our journey takes us!
