On May 23, 2009, the Cavalier Doberman Pinscher Club held a WAE (Working Aptitude Evaluation) in conjunction with the Doberman Specialty at the Langley Kennel Club Show in Hampton, VA.  The WAE is a test to evaluate the Doberman as an ideal “companion and guard dog” and it is to be used as a benchmark for temperament when breeding.  This test has a national average pass rate of about 30%.  Our evaluator this year was John Schoeneman and our agitator this year was Dwayne Nolan.

We had 12 entries this year for the evaluation.  Four of these entries passed the test to receive their WAC (Working Aptitude Certification).  Congratulations go out to Tracy and Rush, Jason and Titus, Allison and Pronto and Marvin and Delta.  Delta was the only female this year that pass the test.

Many thanks go out to everyone who helped put this program together.  We had lots of people working behind the scenes to plan the event and even more people who came out to work and support us during the event.  A special “Thank You” goes out to John and Dwayne for their help.  We could not have done it without you.
