Coulee Reg'd 'Koontz' Litter

 




Ruckus, 7 years old at Waterton Lakes National Park

 

Ruckus to date, has produced only one litter, but within that litter has produced 2 Canadian champions, one V2 rated, one TD and TDX (same smart daughter, Bling), 3 CGN titled pups and 2 certified therapy dogs (TDI), all before their 2 year birthday!!!  And he can also add his daughter Karma who earned her HIC as well!! Click here to meet these brilliant pups!!!

Seriously, who could go wrong with a name like Bold Ruckus?  To further the choice of name for this boy, the horse Ruckus had a mare named Raise-A-Ruckus ..... really, could this be more perfect with a momma like Moka?

So, Ruckus is staying here after a lot of deliberation.  There was just something about him from about 4 weeks old that caught my eye while still in the whelping pen, but as I had the puppies out and about more and more, he just kinda got to me.

Ruckus temperament tested much to my delight as a working prospect with great conformation, knowing full well this was going to happen as I was able to teach him to speak in the whelping pen before he had a name at 6 weeks old .... to say he is full of himself is an understatement.

He is very bold, outgoing and is into everything and loves to meet new people and new dogs, so I am hoping he will fill the big paw steps left behind by the loss of my Justice in June 2007.

The house had not been the same with out a boy Rottweiler and he just seems to have what I am looking for.

 

Structurally, he is very nice with fantastic bone, a short back, good shoulder layback, nice rear angles and a dark eye.  At almost 6 years old, he is 105lbs just shy of 26 inches tall.

Ruckus is truly a little beast - he learned to speak before he knew his name.  He is just that kind of temperament that you want when you are looking for a working prospect.  I am so excited to get working with him.

He is a smart little guy fitting into the household quite easily.  He and Seeker are quite inseparable, although we try.  And he is not lacking at all in confidence. 

Everything he has experienced so far he has taken in stride with no real signs of fear at all.  I forgot what raising a male Rottweiler puppy was like and I am quite enjoying him.

Now as a more mature male, Ruckus is working hard in different venues and doing truly very well.  He is a dog who wants to do what I want to do and is always willing to please and work until he figures out what I am asking of him.

I can't wait until he and I are working in sync as a team, which will come with more time, training and his maturity!

After Ruckus's first show weekend, of which he was shown 2 days, he came home with a Reserve Winners Male ribbon and his first point taking Winners Male on Sunday.  He handled beautifully, stood perfectly for exam and moved out great. 

 

Ruckus earned his HIC title in May 2008 with 5 of his siblings.  Click here to see more of this busy test!

Ruckus earned 3 more points towards his Canadian Championship in August 2008 in Cranbrook, BC, along with his Temperament test title.  He did so going Best of Winners and BEST OF BREED, breeder-owner handled!  His littermates, Kalli and Brogan, both finished their championships this same weekend which made it all that much more exciting!

In Edmonton in September 2008, Ruckus and I thought we would give rally a try for one trial.  Okay, being 13 months old at the time, I didn't expect too much, but he pulled off his first Rally Novice leg with a respectable 88.  He needed more polishing, but he did well for such a young dog.

We also attended a tracking seminar here in Calgary by Ed Presnell (AKC/CKC tracking judge) in October 2008 where we discovered Ruckus really can track too!!!

In all of his glory, Ruckus finished his RN in Red Deer in November 2008.  My handler error lost him 10 points on Saturday and turned his 90 into an 80, but he earned an 89 on Sunday for the title.  Ruckus turns 15 months the week after he earned this title.  He was certainly amusing to watch I am sure, he was pretty amusing to handle.  I am pretty sure he is spring-loaded after these trials. 

 

 


 

We thought it might be nice for Ruckus to enter the show ring again, so at the CKOC show here in Calgary in March 2009, Ruckus did so going Best of Breed over SPECIALS for a 3 point win!  He did so under judge Cheryl Myers Egerton.  He had tons of fun in the ring and although he is still not quite mature, he held his own!

Ruckus finished his Championship in May 2009 in Medicine Hat with 2 more Best of Breed wins!  He was breeder/owner/handled to his all of his points!

At the 2009 RCC National Specialty here in Calgary in July 2009, Ruckus earned the first leg of his PCD title.  He also dabbled a little bit in rally earned a third place score of 97 in rally novice ....  He then went on to finish his PCD at the AKC show 2 weeks later, also in Calgary.  He was surprisingly together and his usual boisterous self in the ring, I was very pleased with him.

Ruckus earned the first leg of his RA title in March 2010 with a score of 95!  He finished his RA title in July 2010 with a 93 and a 97 ....

 

Finishing 2010 with some fabulous news ...... Once again, never ceasing to amaze me ..... we entered the Novice B ring for the first time together in December 2010 at our Cal K9 Club Trials, something we have worked so hard for ...... he was fantastic other than one distracted blip on his part (all part of his charm), and we came out of the ring with a 196.5, Second in Class AND Highest Scoring Breeder/Owner/Handled dog in the trials!!!!!!!!   So very exciting for me as his breeder!!!!!

In very early 2011, we learned that Ruckus would be RCC Honour Roll Eligible for 2011!  Very exciting now that all of the working dogs I have had now have been able to accomplish this award!!!

Next to March 2011 at the CKOC show here in Calgary, Ruckus and I finished off his CD title with a fourth place score of 195.5 (under Judge Terry Gaines) and a third place score of 195 (under Judge Lionel Whitaker, pictured below)!!!  He was rather distracted in his second trial, but it is all a part of the two of us becoming a team and I couldn't be more happy with him.

Ruckus would also like to announce that he has his first champion offspring in March 2011, his son, Chance, bred and owned by Rene Meloche of Coulee Reg'd Rottweilers ..... he did so in 2 show weekends and finished at 11 months of age!!!

 

In Calgary in July 2011, I thought we'd try a little rally again so in true Ruckus fashion, he earned the first leg of his RE title with a 4th in class score of 97!  He also earned his CGN title in July 2011!  Finally brave enough to do it with Captain Spaz and he did it perfectly!

In October 2011, I thought it time that Ruckus and I try out his APDT Rally number for the first time at Sit Happens here in Calgary!!!  Well, he did great.  2 trials in level one and he surprised me by earning his first 2 legs a 202 (in fifth place) and a 199.  The boy appears to be maturing ..... finally.

Lastly for the year of 2011, Ruckus finished his RE title with 2 of his worst performances ever .... he was distracted and clearly not paying attention.  However, he got the legs, his scores were 81 and 96 respectively. Now we can go back and focus solely on his traditional obedience for a few months.

He finished his RE under awesome judge Michael Calhoun.

In early 2012 we found out that Ruckus made his first appearance in the APDT Rally Canadian National Rankings with a rank of #27.  He did so along with his momma Moka, half sister Brenna, Auntie Wicca and his grandmother Jewel!  Three generations, and 5 dogs all in the Canadian rankings in one year, that is very exciting indeed!!





In March 2012 here in Calgary, Ruckus and I decided to try out the Novice Intermediate transitional obedience class that I have not entered into since Jewel finished her CDI title back in 2006 I believe.  Ruckus worked wonderfully but for one blip in his first trial and earned his first leg with a 185.  I personally screwed up his second trial by telling him to 'dog' instead of 'down' in the drop from heeling exercise.  He would have had a great round otherwise ....  Whatta good man he is!!!

March 17, 2012 at the Sit Happens! annual St. Patrick's Day APDT Rally trials, we are happy to announce that Ruckus finished his APDT Rally Level 1 title with a 199 score, plus an extra leg with a score of 191.  He did great!  He also, in finishing this title, also did so with scores that earned him an Award of Excellence!  I am very proud of my boy!

 April 6, 2012 in Red Deer Kennel Club show, we travelled up for the day with Ruckus to try to get one more leg towards his Novice Intermediate title and he did so with a very nice run.  He worked really well, earned a 188.5 and a second in class with one 'no sit', but I got some fabulous compliments from the judge about his work ability and his athletic ability :)

May 11, 2012 in Medicine Hat we worked really hard and Ruckus finished his Novice Intermediate title with another second in class and a 191.5 and I think, other than one hiccup on our heel free, was his best run yet!  Awesome buddy .... our picture is above with judge Susan Des Cotes .... this I believe also now makes our token boy Rottweiler Club of Canada Hall of Fame Eligible for 2012!!!

Ruckus and his baby daughter Karma in May 2011

To say Ruckus likes water would be an understatement!

 

So, Who Was Bold Ruckus?

Bold Ruckus, Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame Inductee in 2006, was known for being a fast horse becoming a stakes winner in 1979 at the Meadowlands, but was more well-known for his talents as a sire.  He has produced MANY million dollar sons and daughters.

He also has an Alberta connection as he was purchased in 1977 by Gerald E. Going of Wetaskawin, Alberta as a yearling.
