Rescue World Ch. (team & individual)
Agility European Open Winner
Agility World Champion (team)
Croatian Agility Ch.
Cap was Sara's dog. He grew up with her and
her older dog, Toto, a bearded collie.
Cap was a versatile working dog with inexhaustible energy and
a will for work. Sara with Cap trained agility, search and
rescue and obedience, and I worked with him with sheep.
Cap has trained in agility since he was one year of age. He
showed himself to be extremely fast, in fact he was always one
of the fastest dogs in competition. Cap was not very easy to
handle and Sara needed to concentrate 100% of the time during the
run. He was running in 3rd degree and one of his greatest successes
with Sara was 4th place in the agility run at the World Championship
2004. In 2006 with Alen he won the European Open Championship
in Luxembourg, and later the same year he became Team World
Champion at AWC in Basel.
Before reaching one year of age, Cap also started to train in
search and rescue. He mastered area search perfectly which he
proved by winning title of individual and team World champion
2005, in France. In 2007 Cap and Sara passed with excellent
mark rubble search test A and B. Cap was a very temperamental
and determined rescue dog and you could rely on him to give of
his best in finding a person in any conditions and under any
To date, Sara and Cap have participated in 4 real SAR actions
in the Zagreb area.
In their spare time Cap and Sara trained obedience exercises
and tricks since Cap's puppyhood. Cap knew over 25 different
tricks, the speed of his performance was leaving everyone who's
Sara and Cap achieved the excellent grades of national, A and
A0, obedience tests; in Austria she passed BGH 3 obedience test,
and also recently the competitive obedience test (GH 1).
In 2007 Sara and Cap were members of national team, which participated
at European obedience championship.
Cap also knew flyball, but because there were no flyball competitions
nearby, he trained in that sport very rarely, and only when needed
for a certain working dog demonstration.
Cap had a good herding instinct and although he tranied very
irregularly (because I do not have my own sheep) he was very
keen and was showing progress in his herding skills. He was a
natural driver and worked on his feet. He passed the herding
test in Austria and had competed on three occasions in 1st class.
Cap also was an actor, he was playing
the main role of theatre play "Timbuktu", with Croatian
actor Sven Medvesek and directed by Borut Separovic from the
Montazstroj performance group.
Cap died on 12 December 2015 at almost 16 years of age.
