BISS Am & Can Champion
Joval-Arily Grand Illusion


Joval-Arily Grand Illusion "OZZY" started his show career in style by earning his championship title in just 2 weekends. Even more impressive is that his championship wins were all majors (4) AND he did this while being only 18 months old! The last of these Major wins was earned at the prestigious Devon show during the Montgomery Specialty Weekend 2007. After becoming a Champion during that weekend, he was "put away" to spend the winter growing up and mature.

In May 2008, Ozzy attended the Canadian National Specialty Cluster and definitely made the trip worthwhile. On the first day, from the classes, Ozzy won BEST IN SHOW at the biggest terrier specialty in Canada. The Next Day, he went Best of Winners and Best Opposite Sex to Krissi (CH Joval Angel's Kiss) at the Canadian National Championship. That same day, at the subsequent show, Ozzy again went Best of Winners, but continued on to Win Best of Breed then earned a Group II, thus earning Ozzy his Canadian Championship - all in one weekend.

In preparation for the World Dog Show, Ozzy was shown throughout June... and, in that month, earned two Group I's, Four Group II's and thrust him into the TOP 10 Airedales in the USA for 2007. At the World Dog Show in Stockholm, Sweden, Ozzy showed like a real champion. During the three 'Cluster Shows" Ozzy earned Excellent Judge's comments and placements each day. Finally, at the World Dog Show itself, Ozzy earned the dog rCAC. From Judges and spectators alike, Ozzy earned many positive comments and made us very proud as his owner & breeder.

In August, Ozzy again took a "quick trip" back to Canada and won 2 more Group II's.  Then, over the next few months, Ozzy continued his successes in the US buy earning numerous Best of Breeds and Group Placements. These wins were enough to make Ozzy the #1 Airedale in Canada for the year and put him far enough ahead that no other Airedale could catch him.

In October, during the Montgomery Specialty Weekend, Ozzy was awarded First Award of Merit at both the Hatboro Show and the Montgomery National Specialty. The rest of that fall, Ozzy was only shown sparingly, but still went on to win many more Best of Breeds and Group placements. He finished the year ranked #7 Airedale in the US, after only being shown actively for 4 months during 2008.

So, all in all, 2008 was a VERY good year for Ozzy!

Ozzy is currently in Europe, being shown selectively and well on his way to earning his FCI International Championship Title.

He has proven himself to be an Excellent Stud Dog producing High-Quality youngsters, passing on many of his outstanding qualities such as exceptional & powerful movement, long neck, gorgeous coat, short back, level topline, good tail set with plenty of rear angulation.  Ozzy has all of his health clearances including BVA and OFA Hips, CERF and OFA Cardiac.

Ozzy is concurrently being offered at Stud to selective bitches in that region, however,
we retain ample Frozen Semen available in the U.S. available during his "European Vacation".
