December 2019 - Kodi and Shiva's title certificates and rosettes earned through the International Canine Ninja and Dog Parkour UK programs. They both earned their IMN title as well as the DPUK-UEFL1, DPUK-NEFL1, and DPUK-EXFL1 - the first two Siberian Huskies worldwide to earn any of these titles!
November 2019 - Kodi and Shiva are now official AKC PupPals! This program provides letters of encouragement with photos and short bios for the dogs to children who are enduring tough situations, from natural disasters to illness to a death in the family. We know these two would be overjoyed to know they're providing a little bit of hope to a child in need.
November 5, 2019 - Kodi and Shiva are Trick Dog pioneers! They are now the 3rd and 4th Siberians in the world to earn the International Canine Ninja Level 1 (ICN) and Dog Parkour UK Built Environment Foundation Level 1 (DPUK-BEFL1) titles.
Even cooler, they are the first two Siberians worldwide to earn the PKD-T (Parkour Dog In Training) and ICN-2ONS (ICN 2-On Specialist) titles! Way to go, Kodi and Shiva!

Sandy and Kodi spent Memorial Day Weekend 2018 in Girard, KS while they tried their first ACA show. They did very well, with Kodi taking BOB/GRP1 in all 6 shows, plus 4 BIS-3's (ACA offers 1st-3rd place BIS awards rather than just BIS/RBIS) , and a *BEST IN SHOW!* Way to go, Team Kodi!
Kodi posing with his awards from the Ohio Doberman Club's Virtual Dog Show, a digital competition fundraiser for the club's UKC show which he competed in on May 1st.

March 25, 2018 - Kodi earned his FDC (Farm Dog Certification) test at Latigo Farm in Broken Arrow, OK. It was cold and threatening to storm, which Kodi definitely enjoyed, and he made Sandy very proud when he resisted the temptation of running at the ducks and chickens and all but ignored the sheep entirely.
Kodi got to spend the weekend of March 10-11, 2018 doing his favorite thing - lure coursing - at the Tulsa Sighthound Association event in Edmond, OK. He passed all 3 Coursing Ability Tests, earning the last 3/10 Q's needed for his CAA title!
Kodi has earned one of AKC's newest awards - the Achiever Dog! This is awarded to dogs who have earned qualifying scores or placements in at least 3 different sports, and at least one must have been earned after 12/1/17. Kodi earned his on Sandy's birthday when they went to McKinney, TX for a Coursing Ability Test.

One of many championship certificates Kodi has earned!

Kodi is pictured above at 10 1/2 months old. The first picture is him (being very humble I might add) with his winnings from his weekend at the ICKC shows. The next two are his very first snow falls. They don't get much snow in Oklahoma and Kodi was loving it!
Kodi is pictured along the top row at 6, 7 and 8 months of age. The bottom row he is 9 months old. He has matured into such a lovely boy with correct reach and drive and beautiful side movement! We sure are proud of these two! I am sure Sandy and Kodi will accomplish many more things as they enjoy different venues and events! We will be sure to keep you updated!
Here are pictures of all Kodi's "loot" that he has earned from 4 months of age and on! He also earned his AKC Puppy Star Certification, AKC Coursing Ability title, Canine Good Citizen certification and the newest thing from the American Kennel Club, a Trick Dog Title!
Kodi pictured below at 13 weeks to 15 weeks old. From loving nature to loving to be a show dog and to being a goof with his bucky beaver teeth!
