Siberian Huskies are an amazingly versatile breed, able to perform tasks ranging from pulling sleds and carts to obedience, agility, and even therapy work! While conformation (dog shows) are a very important way to ensure we are breeding as closely to the standard as possible, we have always believed that this breed has a lot more potential than can be seen in a tiny show ring. This is a breed with beauty AND brains, and it is always wonderful to see a Siberian getting to exercise their talents and enthusiasm in multiple venues.
One of the things we pride ourselves most for in our breeding program is our dogs' incredible temperaments and willingness to try new activities, and while we have only recently discovered the wealth of available performance events and venues, several Echoing Wind dogs have already begun succeeding in performance venues (particularly Kruiz and his progeny, who both inherited their father's incredible love for lure coursing).
As more of our dogs continue to compete and earn titles in these other sports, we will showcase them here and provide an explanation of what each title requires in order to earn it. We encourage anyone who is interested in trying out these activities with their dog to contact us or Sandy Hudspeth (Kodivaro Siberians). She is the owner/handler of our bred-by boy Kodi, and despite being a newbie to both conformation and performance has already put numerous titles on him by just 3 years of age. She will be happy to assist you if she can.
