October 27, 2012 UKC show 9 Months old yara placed 2nd in adult working group!

Yara and I went to Grand River Kennel Club UKC show on Saturday just to keep her exposed to the show life. We enetered 2 shows .Yara did amazing. She placed 2nd in Guadrian group out of 6 dogs. Yara was the only puppy, she won over 5 adults. I was very happy with her ring attitude. Our friends Natella, Gabby and ira came to see us and took a video.

Video of Yara in her class

yara is a daughter of our 2 gorgeous multi talanted BRTS Marley and Sadie. We are so pleased with this litter. 4 puppies out of 6 already have CGC and training for rally and conformation.

October 22, 2012. First TR1 - Schutzhubd tracking title in our kennel and in Cadana!

Windsor Schutzhund training Club held a trial on Sunday under USA IPO judge Mike Hamilton. 9 dogs were entered in tracking.
The judge commented that Sadie is the 1st BRT he has ever judged and that she is a good looking dog.

The weather was good, but the filed was not very nice: lots of holes in the ground, the filed was dug up pretty bad by the machines that harvested hay recently. One of the dogs encountered a mouth on the track and was hunting it. Sadie was lucky and no mice jumped while she was on track. Of course I was nervous, because it was our first attempt in competitive tracking. Schutzhund tracking (IPO) is different from AKC /CKC tracking. We want to see steady, deep nose intense step by step tracking, casting is punishable by point deduction. It is 350 paces and the dog needs to indicate 2 articles on this track. 100 points is a maximum score, 70 is a passing score. Each article is worth 21 points. The judges like to see 2 of 90 degree left turns executed calmly and precisely. What can i say, Sadie did well, indicated both article and passed on her very first attempt. Wow!!!

Sadie is the 1st BRT in Canada and most likely in the USA to earn TR1 title. We are very proud of our gorgeous versatile working champion. Sadie had 2 litters of pups while training, earning her titles and hanging out with Midnight Solo family being a wonderful loyal friend.

Sadie's full name is CKC CH Midnight Solo Siona Sadie, TT, BH, Sch. TR1,DD,CGC, CD, CD-X, RN, RA, RE, AKC CD, RN

SEPTEMBER 27,2012 - A letter from our puppy owners in California.

Hi Jean!

 Ruso has fit beautifully into our lives and we wonder how we ever lived without him!  His life is filled with weekend soccer games, trips to the beach and hikes and walks.  Now that the kids are in school, he also comes along with me to drop the kids off and pick them up from school!  We do big family dinners at the grandparents house on Sundays and he loves to go.  Our vet has given him the nickname of "gentle lovebug" because he really is very calm and gentle.  You did a great job choosing a pup with such a family oriented personality.  My youngest son, Drew is so happy to finally have a partner who loves to go explore the  beach with him and is not afraid to get a little wet and sand on him!  Our other dog Josie has jokingly been referred to as a "cat" by my husband.  He says Ruso is a real dog who loves to play in water and run and jump!  Ruso walks beautifully on a lead when we walk around downtown, and he walks beautifully off leash at the beach and on hikes.  He is very calm and gentle when people ask to pet him and say hello to him.  In fact, he's so wonderful that we've even had him at parties with 30-80 people, and he just mingles and interacts so nicely!  

He has learned how to play fetch with the family.  He just started bring the toy back, then dropping it at our feet or in our hands.  He's not too interested in regular fetch balls, but he likes soccer balls and stuffed toys!

Thank you again for sending us such a wonderful little guy-he is the perfect addition to our family! We are very happy, proud owners of our BRT, and we couldn't be more pleased that we got Ruso from you!

Best, Katia

Russo is a puppy from Marley and Sadie . Thank you Katia and family for chosing and living Russo, please stay in touch
