Esko is eye-catching to say the very least. Stunning black sable color with a magnificent broad and substantial head with loads of character and wonderful expression. Strong bones with fluid movement.
Good overall impression of firmness and strength. Absolutely rock solid temperament with great capacity to handle stress. Can go anywhere, anytime, day or night, totally self-confident and ready for anything.
Shows an excellent relationship with his handler in obedience with quick and reliable reactions to the commands. Strong drive in protection demonstrating full, hard grips and intensive guarding in the bark and hold exercise. Launches and hits with full commitment on the long distance courage test.
Calm and secure inside the home. We are very fortunate to be able to add him to our kennel.

Hi Cindy & Jim,
We got our male pup "Koda" from you in April. He was born in February from the Esko and Cat litter.
He has been such a wonderful addition to our family. He is excellent with the kids and has become quite the water baby.
He often goes for a dip in our pool with or without us! He's even started rescuing us from the pool.
He is such a bright dog. We look forward to starting Koda in training with you in
the next month or so. Here are a few photo updates. Thanks!
Elisa and Tony Lucchesi
Hi Cindy & Jim!
Mshindi is a fantastic puppy! He continues to be very curious of his environment and keenly observant.
So much so I am beginning him on the fundamentals of nosework. He is also the most loving puppy that Iíve had to date.
This has been a very enjoyable and appreciated trait.
His future ability at bite work is extremely evident.
Right now heís teething, so I am not training him for this currently.
I am focusing on his obedience skills, where he shows strong food drive.
I am a marker (or clicker) trainer, and Iíve observed that he tends to get impatient occasionally but think that will dwindle down as he gets a little older.
He is extremely possessive of his toys and that has made training for the OUT command challenging.
I quickly learned that forcing him to OUT was not going to work at all, but if I keep hands off the toy after the command, he will comply.
Iíve found that interesting.
Iím including some pictures of him, I think youíll find him absolutely beautiful.
I know I do! Heís four months respectively in the photos.
Thank you for breeding such exceptional animals. I look forward to many years with my companion.
It's been a while since I've written but I wanted to send you a few pictures of Coda.
She's every bit of perfect. She's smarter than any dog I've ever had.
She is fearless and a natural protector. She can search out anything and find it on command.
She will climb anything on command, go through it on command of left or right.
She will sit,drop down, stay, long stay, heals perfectly, and will attack someone if needed.
She also knows the off command very well. She has jaws of steel. I just wanted to let you know she's very happy here.
