Default Claddagh is 20 weeks old.

We've been real busy the last few weeks, and haven't had much time to read or post. I have been busy with a lot of photography jobs, my real job, training and not much time to photograph my own dogs.

Claddagh has been an incredible joy! She is more than I ever hoped for when I began researching what I would produce through this breeding. She has the best of her mother and her sire. This breeding produced an unimaginable amount of drive for both play and prey. Conformationally speaking, she has the substantial bone I was looking for, good croup, and outstanding color. She is just now developing her ink spot on her tongue which is a sign of better than average pigment (highly desired). Her red is getting richer daily. Her front reach is amazing for one so young. Most important to me is her temperament, which is excellent. She is very outgoing, fearless, and is already showing herding instinct. Of course, she is now in that awkward stage where parts grow at different rates and with the adult teeth coming in, her ears do the strangest things. Each day I wonder, what will she do with those ears today. On rainy days, which we have had a lot of, her ears are up and show a perfect ear set. Now one would think while playing in the rain, a prick-eared dog would flap the ears. Nope not her.

Her training is coming along great! she is already doing half a SchH1 track, with a very deep nose. Her obedience is so easy to work with as this whole litter developed focus at an early age. I spend most of my time imprinting what she will really need to start learning and perfecting come spring. For bite work, it has been limited due to the puppy teeth leaping out of her mouth left and right. She has been watching the 6month and older puppies doing the puppy circle and some select adult dogs working. She is very intent on what is going on, and has begun to demonstrate an understanding of what is taking place. She has passed all of the gun tests that have been done. She shows her nerves are very strong. Hopefully, she will continue showing this level of progress.

Claddagh at 20 weeks You will note, her favorite object is a stick. She inherited that from her sire and her Uncle Flipp. She got a double whammy of love for wood.

Thank you everyone! I am pretty proud of her, and her littermates. Here are a few pictures of her littermates, and a bit of an update on what they are doing now. Indulge me in a bit of a brag.

This is Celt. He is the spitting image of his sire, Olesko. He is currently attending obedience classes where he is out shining many of the other dogs. He will be moving onto Schutzhund training. His favorite thing to do is to go to the beach and charm everyone there. Lucky for him he lives two blocks from the ocean and gets to spend a LOT of time there.


This is Connor. He resides with his sire Olesko, his older half sister Daemon, a malinois named Baron, and 13 alpaca. He will be trained and titled in Schutzhund and French Ring like his sire. He is quite the handful, but dearly loved by all who meet him. The GSD in the background is the sire to the litter, V Olesko vom Sandstein SchH3 IPO3 FH2 FR1 KKL1a lbz


This is Cuik. Cuik is training in Wilderness Search & Rescue, and will also be a dual Human Remains Detection K9. He is going to all the team's PR events because he is so outgoing and has rock solid nerves. He resides with 4 other GSDs(all are certified SAR & HRD), one of which is his older half sister, Banshee, from a previous litter of mine. The whole family does SAR so he has a lot of opportunity to learn through association training. This PR event was at the Home Depot where the state police and local fire department did the Safe Kids presentation and made photo IDs of all the kids. Cuik even had a photo ID made.


The other two pups are doing super as well. Cullen is a personal service dog in training. Yesterday he graduated his obedience class and won every one of the obedience competitions. Cren is training and learning the early imprinting for Schutzhund and is the daily playmate of a human 3 year old. I only have pictures of those two at 15 weeks, there is a big difference between 15 weeks and 20. I am anxious to see how they have changed in appearance.
