Steve returns home

My boy Steve just returned home. Since March he has been training with Leithawald team overseas. While he was there he earned his BH, IPO1 and IPO2 titles. I am so thankful to have this opportunity and I am so proud of Steve!! And I am so happy to have him home. There was a noticeably empty place in our home without Steve there. He is a very special, once in a lifetime dog!

I have a trip to Boise planned to meet some awesome trainers to help get him ready for his show and breed survey in October. Exciting times ahead, I can still hardly believe all this is happening. I am so thankful to Julie for making this possible for us. I should say also how impressed I am with Steve’s breeding. His temperament is truly ideal. I brought him home after him being gone for six months and it was like he had never been gone and we just picked right back up where we left off. He is still the same lovable Steve. The following are all pictures from his first few days back home. And if you ever want to see more pictures of him I have his entire life on an Instagram account @stevetopdog

Steve is registered as Alta-Tollhaus Ulfr.

He and Mika are becoming fast friends!

Steve at USCA Sieger 2017 Macon, GA

Hey guys,

I just got Steve’s pictures back from the national show this Spring and wanted to share them. We did this show the year before and he took third place in his class, needless to say I was overjoyed when he placed first this year! Such a cool experience – we are so proud of our little guy 🙂

New kid in town

Introducing Alta-Tollhaus Michigan “Mika” – pronounced Mee-ka. She is one of ten pups from the M litter born mid June. I have been talking to Julie about getting a female for awhile now but didn’t think it would happen so soon- well circumstances aligned and here she is! Better yet, another AT puppy is also residing in Washington state and those puppy parents were kind enough to transport Mika home 🙂

Mika has been with us for a week now and is such a wonderful puppy!!! She loves her crate and is super fun to train. We have a puppy tug/flirt pole for her that we take out a couple times a day. I also give her a treat every time she looks up at me (she is picking up on that really quick) She loves working for treats and dinner. I have been luring her into sits, downs, heeling, etc, basically everything I want her to do as an adult in modified puppy version. We do this for a few minutes several times a day and she just loves it! As you can imagine, I’ve been taking a ton of pictures of her. Below are some of my favorites, and look her ears were up by the end of the week (though I’m sure they’ll go down and up again)! This is Mika at 8 and 9 weeks old.

Mika shares her new home with a 7 year old shepherd named Lexi and with Steve, a almost 3 year old from Alta-Tollhaus who you can find on this blog 🙂

Two years with Steve

This past week was the two year mark of picking up little Steve at the airport.

Here’s a little then and now.

If you look close you can see he still has a white tipped back paw 😃
