Sparky is a very special boy since he was born. He is a single puppy, so he is quite spoiled and hooked on us (and us on him) too. He´s got a wonderful temperament and he learns amazingly quickly. At the age of four weeks (!) he brought me toys on call and today he is a good aporter. In the first five months of his life he learned to: come, give each paw, sit, lay, stay, bring (aport), drop. At age of 12 weeks he made the whole agility parcour. Sparky is a very exceptional, talented dog and we are very proud of him.
You can read about Sparky´s debut in harness HERE.
Around the age of 3 years, Sparky became naturally a leader of the pack, without a single conflict or fight with the other dogs. He is a very fair and respected leader, and inherited a very calm aproach to everything from his daddy Buck.
As a sled dog, Sparky can be compared to "good whisky" - the older, the better :) Seriously, each season he becomes stronger, tougher, more driven and his work ethic is increasing with more miles under his belt. As a younger dog, Sparky used all kinds of trickes of his extreme intelligence, to prettend pulling, and he also seemed to have trouble with speed. Through some 101 trainig, recommended by my friend Karen Ramstead, Sparky became very obedient in the team and came back the next season as a totally different dog.
There is no way of not loving this very unique character!
