Kaibab's Cruising Mavericks, CD RN NDD CGC

Maverick - Bernese Mountain Dog

Owner / Handler - Marti Simon

Maverick is a 6 year old Bernese Mountain Dog. He is a perpetual puppy. He has been called "special" by many people, he is my Novice A dog and my heart dog. Some dogs are easy. Easy to train, easy to live with, easy to compete with. Not Mav! Maverick is the dog that was sent to me to teach me patience, to teach me that success isn't about the ribbons and the q's. I have learned to appreciate the day to day journey, to live in the moment and enjoy the everyday lessons that our dogs teach us. I can only hope he is with me for another 6 years, we may end up with an agility title!

The Maverick FAQ
He weighs 110 pounds, he is 32 inches at the withers.
He is extremely tall for a berner, 4 inches over the standard. He is very light for his height.
He eats 3 cups of kibble a day in addition to about 4 pieces of string cheese.
He loves doing agility as long as he doesn't have to do too many tunnels or dogwalks.
We also compete in obedience, rally, and draft. Mav has tried herding, earthdog, lure-coursing. He is a champion counter-surfer. Sigh.
His nicknames are Ricky, Big Rick, Big Butt, Butthead, and Mav Man.
