History

Tutu was a rescue Dobermann who, luckily for her, came to live with Frank & Dorrie DeCatania.  Tutu competed in obedience and tracking, and she was the first ‘associate’ dog to attain the title of Westralian Obedience Champion.  In those day dogs also had to get their TDX to gain their AOC title.  This title was newly created for Tutu, after the ANKC  protested about the CAWA awarding the AOC title to four sterilised GSD’s before her (at this stage dogs had to be entire to qualify).  Rick Richardson was commissioned to design the certificate.

Frank was a Tracking Judge and wanted Tutu to be remembered, so he donated the Tutu Memorial Plaque for Club Person of the Year to Trackwest.
