Sambuca - Daiquiri's backup and disc lover
Sambuca is a red merle Australian Shepherd, born Dec 17/2016. He is very colourful in both temperament and coat. His flashiness is paired with a lack of self-preservation and he tends to be reckless at times. However, he is so incredibly smart, and this is a fantastic combination to challenge Jennifer’s dog training skills. Jen feels he will surpass Daiquiri. Once Sambuca is locked onto a new task, he learns it with alarming speed, and is willing to do things that even the bravest of dogs would baulk at. Sambuca has earned multiple titles in agility, rally and obedience as well as a National Championship in the United States. His trick training is coming along beautifully, and is also part of the Superdogs Team. Sambuca has recently taken up freestyle disc and is proven to be a natural at the sport and will be competing successfully very soon.
Fabio is “Fabulous Darling.”
Wanting the ultimate challenge, Jennifer brought home what she was told, was the most unintelligent and untrainable breed of dog – an Afghan-Hound. She swiftly set aside all past prejudices while working with this special boy. Jennifer learned that sometimes it is not the breed that makes the dog, but the trainer.
Fabio has won several high in trials in rally obedience and has excelled in trick training. He also showcases with the Superdogs Team, making him a beautiful favorite of the crowd. Brains and beauty are a rare combination for this breed, but Jennifer is thrilled to have this handsome boy to train with the team.
Fabio was born on July 4th/2018, and like his birthday, he is independent. But that does not stop him from wanting to train and be with his favorite person. Perhaps he is special… or perhaps it is the training and dedication Jennifer has put into him…. perhaps a little of both. Either way, Fabio is one-of-a-kind.
