3- Time World Champion 5- Time World Champion Runners up 2- Time National Champion 6- Time State Champion 25- Plus World Finalist World Record Holder in Masters Freestyle
I knew I wanted a second potential disc dog after I got Rocket after I found out how fun the sport was and I wanted to double the fun. Well we went to this different border collie breeder then we got Rocket from and we saw a bunch of puppies but there was one runt of the litter off by himself with unique facial markings and for some reason I just knew at that point that is who I wanted.
Gipper had a lot of little quirks when we first got him, but over time he slowly started to fall in love with the disc. When he was two he started to win and just kept on winning and winning.
Gipper was named after Legendary Old Time Great Notre Dame Football player George Gipp.
Sept 1, 2014 Gipper will be going back to the World Championships in Freestyle. It will be the last time he competes in Expert Freestyle. He competed just recently in Masters Freestyle for dogs over 9 and shattered the World Record held by Rocket. He had two flawless perfect no drop rounds of freestyle. Gipper will also be competing in the World Championships this year in Distance and Accuracy, Spot Landing, Bullseye, DD Freestyle and Pairs D/A
June 7th, 2014 Well what can you say Gipper is Gipper and just a incredible dog, we got the news and this is the first place it has been shared. Gipper seemed to be coming up a little tender on one of his back hips and sure enough after a lot of trips to a specialist it was confirmed he has a issue back there and we caught it before it got really bad and it was recommended that we gently work him and we hopefully can get thru this season and then we need to retire him from competitive freestyle, We will still do demos but the rigors of training for freestyle will be over. He is and will continue to be spoiled. He has also qualified for the world championships this year in both Regular Freestyle and also DiscDogAthon freestyle. He is the most loyal dog and has really warmed up to Hope who runs to Gipper whenever she needs to feel secure.
