Rico (health - accomplishments) came to us in 2013 at just over 2 years old. Like my female Phyre, Rico is from Ajay Singh of vom Patiala in San Francisco California. Rico is an extremely athletic, powerful and driven son of SG Mac von der Kine SchH3, IPO3, FH2. His protection is intense and balanced. He has hard, full grips, strong fight drive all while remaining clear headed and focused. Rico shows the same focus and drive in his obedience and tracking.
In July 2014, we accomplished his IPO 1 with High Tracking, High Obedience, High Protection, High IPO 1 and High in Trial at the Saugeen SchH Club (98-90-93). Three months later, we repeated his performance for his IPO 2. We didn’t take the High in Tracking title, but the rest were ours (96-90-95). His IPO 3 was earned in October 2015 at the Schutzhund Club of Buffalo (95-83-97) with High IPO 3.
Rico has been shown twice - once at the 2015 Ontario Regionals and the second time at the 2015 New England Regionals. He received the rating of SG at both shows.
Rico LOVES to work, LOVES to play and gives both his all. Rico fit into our family immediately. He is a wonderful pet who lives for attention. He is a playful dog who has solid nerves and a clear head. His drive is strong yet he calms easily in the house. He is a motivated tracker with excellent article indication. His obedience is focused and one step away from explosion. Rico’s protection is balanced and solid. He brings fight to the field with solid secondary obedience.
Rico's genetics are exceptional. His dam is Nela vom Patiala IPO3 from vom Patiala Kennel daughter of Jilnannah vom Talka Marda the only producing female from the world famous J-litter vom Talka Marda. His sire Mac von der Kine qualified for the BSP in 2010 from LG 13 with 96-91-94 (placing 5th). Amazingly this dog was then 53rd at the BSP (95-80-93) with his 1st time SchH handler! Every competitor understands the enormity of this accomplishment! Mac also competed at Landes -FH1 & placed 4th (96 pts) & received his FH2 (96).
Some notable dogs from Rico's pedigree are; Sid vom Haus Pixner, Quaste von Ankenrutt and Vox von der Kine. Of all the dog in Rico's 5 generation pedigree (62 dogs) - all but 4 have attained a SchH 3 or IPO 3 (the 4 that have not are titled to SchH 1 or 2) and 27 have FH titles.
He is a fun dog who we enjoy having in our home. We have been very pleased with his progeny and are anxious to see them continue is his footsteps
