​That same year, she earned her International Championship title via the IABCA and was temperament tested by the American Temperament Test Society at the Piedmont Kennel Club in Charlotte, NC, which earned her the TT title. In November of 2015, she earned her therapy dog certification via TDI (Therapy Dogs International) and is currently doing therapy visits in various nursing homes to earn her title. We started on the path of obedience training with Mercedes in 2017. She went on to earn her Rally Novice title at an event held by the Roanoke Kennel Club that fall. In 2019, Mercedes earned her Novice Tricks title 

Although now retired, Mercedes is still very much an integral part of our family. She has blessed many in her therapy work and with her offspring that have gone on to be well loved family pets, service and therapy dogs.

DOB: 11/24/12 

Mercedes is an exceptionally sweet, light colored Golden Retriever who loves to be around people. As most Golden Retrievers, Mercedes enjoys playing fetch, taking walks and carrying toys around the house.  

Mercedes was imported from Serbia and I oftentimes refer to her as our Serbian princess. She came to us from Retrievers of Golden Duck and was bred by Natasa Davidovic, who not only breeds Golden Retrievers, but is a renowned dog show judge as well. When Mercedes came to Camelot House, she was registered via the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale) as a cream colored Golden Retriever. She is now registered via the AKC. Some people refer to her coloring as English Cream, though her color is classified as light golden by the American Kennel Club, as well as the Golden Retriever Club of America.  

Mercedes is a show dog at heart and goes into the stacked position with little training by us. She has a lovely block head with a friendly, intelligent expression. Her light colored coat is dense with beautiful feathering. Her height at the withers is 22 inches and she weighs 75 lbs. .

Mercedes earned her CCA (Certificate of Conformation Assessment) and CGC (Canine Good Citizen) titles in April of 2015 at an event held by the Sandlapper Golden Retriever Club in Gray Court, South Carolina.

This is Mercedes obeying the down & stay commands.  It is best not let the dog learn your habits so well that they release themselves from commands before you release them.  After this picture, I walked back to Mercedes and then walked around her before releasing her from the stay position.
