My Puppies


Dax has been a little bit of a surprise for us from our 'Harry Potter' litter because he was sold as a pet, and by all accounts, he is the much adored 'only son' of the Csanyi family, but he has also turned out to be a beautiful dog.

Dax is also a very big boy.  Apparently very accurately named after the gentle Half Giant from the Harry Potter Series, Hagrid, at 3 years old, Dax is 122lbs and 26inches tall!  He is in fantastic condition, well-muscled, he has beautiful conformation with nice heavy-bone, dark eye, and he is maturing into a stunning dog.

Dax was shown at the West Coast Landesgruppe Sieger show in Langley, BC in October 2005 in the 4-6 month males class and received a VP-2 rating under judge Bill Alexander of the US.  He was such a big, clumsy puppy then we were very pleased with his critique and how he showed there.

Dax moving his way to Best of Breed in February 2008!

Dax's second sieger show was July 22, 2006 at the age of 16 months in a large competitve class under ADRK Judge Werner Walter from Germany, where he took an SG rating and showed beautifully for his Daddy Mike.  He earned his TT the same day along with 3 littermates and his mom, Jewel.

Here is Dirk (Seeker's bro), Della (Dax's daughter) and Dax enjoying the rough life ....

Dax was first CKC pointed earning his first 3 points going Winners Dog and Best of Winners from the Open class at the Working/Herding Show in Red Deer in October 2006 which was also a breed booster, so there were some great prizes for him!  Special thanks to Marina Skoreiko and Michelle Whistlecraft for handling Dax to these points since I had a conflict with Jewel in the obedience ring at the same time! 

Dax went on to earn another 2 points at the December 2006 CKOC show going Winners Dog and Best of Winners breeder/handled to this win!  He was half way to his Canadian Championship!!!



At the AKC show in February 2007, Dax earned another point, sitting him at 6 points towards that CH.!!!  March 2007 at the CKOC show, Dax was shown 2 days and earned his final 4 points to finish his Canadian Championship in style with a BEST OF BREED win. 

Dax earned his Herding Instinct Certificate in Chilliwack, BC in May 2007 doing incredibly well, staying focused and getting some excellent remarks from tester and CKC Herding judge, Shelley Fritzke.

Dax and Grandma Traci, February 2008 Best of Breed X3

February 2008 in Calgary at the AKC show, Dax went Best of Breed all 3 days, making the cut in group on Saturday.  He was handled to perfection by Grandma Traci.  Not too shabby for a boy who had not been in the show ring for 8 months.

We are very excited to announce that Dax became a daddy for the first time April 8, 2009.  He and Roxy had 4 boys and 6 girls who are doing really well.  Click here to see more of them!

From this litter, Dax's daughter Della has joined him with his owners Gail and Mike.  She inheritied the best of both of her parents and hopefully will follow in her daddy's footsteps in the show ring.

In September 2009 Dax sired 2 litters for our kennel.  Links to those breedings are up at the top of the page .... we are very excited to see what he is going to produce for us .....

As of March 2012, Dax is now retired from our breeding program and he, his daughter Della and their 'parents' Gail and Mike, have moved to the lower mainland of BC.  We are sad that they no longer live right up the street from us but so excited for the new adventures that they are going to have!!!
