Sinova's Out to Getya Van Arek
"Crush" is out of our retired female Nova, from her litter with "Rio". At 75 pounds and around 25 inches at the shoulder, he is on the larger side. Crush is socially stable (though aloof with strangers unless they have something he wants), and a happy, energetic dog. He has worked in Obedience and Tracking and is currently training in Sport Detection for fun (he serves as one of my "testers" when we are trying out new training ideas). Good with other dogs, and easily ignoring their misbehaviors, he took over for Nova when she retired from Demo and class/lesson work. This part of his career is gradually winding down, but he still loves to come along and "help" at classes. He is excellent with young puppies, and so helps with puppy raising and socializing.
