IPO2, High-IPO2 – Lee and Brody (Wally and Brody have the same mother)
IPO3 – Third IPO3 for Carin and Bello
Carin and Bello decided to compete at the South Michigan Police and Schutzhund Club Trial at the last minute when the club had some cancellations. The trial was one of the first cooler days we have had after stifling heat, and Bello was loving the temps and was his normal powerhouse self with a little bit extra.
The judge complimented them multiple times for his power, enthusiasm, and the top team-work between Carin and Bello. This is a team that is always a pleasure to watch!

Bello during the critique, yeah he knows he is awesome:
Mika did so well on our two week vacation/road trip. We left Washington for Missoula on Saturday and from there spent a couple days in South Dakota before continuing on to Ohio for the dog show. Mika proved to be a great travel companion. At the show she took third place, she did a little better in practice the day before but it was all good expirience. From the show we spent a couple days on Lake Michigan and then headed home.
There were so many Alta Tollhaus folks at the show which made the event a great time. I have more pictures that I will share later of all the other dogs, but here are some of Mika on the show day, the second picture is of her and her new friend Aiden:)
Mika was entered in OG Idaho’s Fall show, she was awarded VP2 by Judge Helmut Koenig. Though she was the youngest puppy, she performed very well in the ring.
It was a crazy day, we left the house at midnight, drove 8 hours to the show, stayed for 2 hours and then drove home. Thank goodness for coffee! Such good experience for Mika; she got the hang of it really quick. We are hoping to attend the NW regional show this weekend.
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 🙂
