Jango is One Year Old
Jango turned a year old a week ago. We're working on some outdoor kennel training now, since the weather's been so nice out the last couple of days. I took some pictures of him today, half asleep. Mojo was also out in the backyard, sunbathing. :3

I also got to meet up with Jango's brother Kobe, and his sister Diva. It's nice to see the other pups - Kobe is HUGE!!! I'm going to be doing some one-on-one training with them on Tuesdays, this month. Training and boarding in general has started picking up again. I have a 4 month old female Border Collie staying with me for the next week, for training. It'll be nice to get some extra business this summer.


Update on the Shiba puppy: the owners are still asking for too much money. I've offered to do training for free if they can find someone to buy him for the price they're asking, but they will have to let the buyers know that he needs a LOT of work, and to bring him back to the clinic for lessons. I'll be doing my best to keep tabs on the situation. So I'll be returning all the donations that were given. Thanks for the support anyway. :3

I thought you had Jango neutered? Retained testicle. Or was it a different dog? o_O'

I believe she intends to have Jango breed.

I hadn't planned on neutering him, but one of his testicles never dropped, so I had it surgically removed so that it doesn't become a cancer risk for him in the future. He is so mellow, I wanted him to keep what little testosterone he had. :-P

Also, a friend of the family has a female that they want to breed, and they've asked me if I'd be interested in having Jango sire the litter. They like his temperament and features, and are willing to let me have pick of the litter.

You going to get some working titles on him? Or does only having one testicle omit him from competition? I'm not sure how that stuff works...


And what's wrong with being mellow....? Too many hormone-hopped up Rottweilers out there already as it is! lol

Well, I can't show him in conformation because of the one testicle thing, but even before he had the surgery I was told that he'd automatically be disqualified because his tail dock is too long. *smirks* I hate the silly politics in showing dogs... it's not like a long tail dock is genetic - it was a hack job done by a vet, not the dog's fault. But I think I can still get him into Tracking and Protection work. Trying to find an all breed Schutzhund club to get him into.

I love his mellow nature, but I also want him to develop proper protective instincts. He's actually really good at judging a threat. He's so happy durfy though, you'd never know he could be a good guard dog. ;) Taffy's a pretty good alert dog to, isn't she?
