March Patient of the Month- Trevi

This month we recognize a patient with a very different story. This 3 ½ year old, male Great Dane has been a patient of the HAH since he was 6 months old and been in the care of Dr. Herrington for all of his wellness needs. However, this month he is not being recognized for his stories written within our hospital rather we would like to recognize him for his adventures outside of these four walls. 

Trevi, full name OHBIS CH Great View's of the Fontana Di Trevi at BWK, CGC, AOM is an award winning show dog that holds the distinction of being Owner Handled. This means that his momma, Amber, is also his handler. Amber and Trevi have been together since he was 8 weeks old and truly have a special connection. They have traveled the country together showing off his skills in obedience, tricks, rally, and agility as well as his more typical “tricks” like playing dead, grabbing a tissue/towel when  Amber sneezes, taking a bow, peek-a-boo and name a few. He is a Canine Good Citizen and simply loves to learn and have fun. As does his mom. 

In his career, Trevi has received the 2013, #2 Owner Handler Great Dane in the Country. He was first grand championship major going Best of Breed on the Florida January Circuit beating out 39 other Great Danes and is officially listed in the Top 20 Great Danes in the Country. 

His most recent charge was at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club just this year where he received an Award of Merit out of an entry of 32 Great Danes!

“It was an honor just to show [at Westminster]! I was a little nervous but we were also very excited, the most important thing for us is to have a good time while we are out there! Trevi showed like a dream that day! He really gave it his all….This was honestly a dream come true!”

“Saying how proud this boy makes me just isn't enough! He truly is my best friend and it's such a fun adventure and amazing experience traveling around the country with him! We are currently traveling around still showing in Breed & the Owner Handler Series, so hopefully we will have more exciting news to share in the future!”- Amber

Amber and Trevi certainly make a great team and we are pleased to know them and be able to highlight this talented duo.

They will also be showing March 15 & 16 in Davie at the Bergeron Rodeo Grounds if you want to see them live in actions. It should be an awesome day.

  1. I am extremely proud of my daughter and her Great has taken days, even weeks of training and preparation to achieve her and Trevi's status. They are a great team ! And that is truly what it takes - teamwork and dedication. I love you both♡
