Professional Equestrian Competes with Beauceron ‘Lundi’ at National Obedience Championships

If you have a well-behaved and eager-to-please dog, you might consider taking them to the Obedience ring. After meeting certain qualification criteria, your dog could receive an invitation to compete at the national level. One of the participants at this year’s 2023 AKC National Obedience Championship is Lundi, a Beauceron.

Lundi, a tall black-coated dog with red feet and the herding instincts of a Border Collie, is owned by Kelley Norred, a professional equestrian. Norred needed a dog who would keep her company while working in the barn at night and could also act as a protector on her farm in Florida.

Norred’s Journey with Lundi

In 2015, Norred brought home Lundi, who is known for her sweet temperament and intelligence, making her suitable for various dog sports. Despite her imposing appearance, Lundi is a social butterfly who gets along well with people and other dogs.
