Cooper is a male that has a really special personality. He is eager to please, has a lot of enthusiasm and learns quickly and easily. When it comes to work, Cooper is focused and doesn’t care about anything else. He is totally neutral to the people and dogs around him. This is also true in everyday life where he is aloof and will ignore other dogs and humans even if they are walking right past him. Cooper does not require the company of people other than his owners and does not seek to be friends with other people. He is not aggressive, just aloof. He will happily perform tasks for others in exchange for treats or toys, but his owners are always number one. He will play with some of the dogs within our own pack, but others, he will ignore. He does not have any interest in dogs outside of his pack and does not seek to be friends with them, but never creates conflict either. If a strange dog gets in his face, he does not attack, but will warn them with a growl.
Obedience: Cooper has always been very enthusiastic, which could often make learning obedience difficult at a younger age since he was so enthusiastic that obedience became boring. He learns any new task quickly and prefers to spend more time refining. He is also motivated by toy and game rewards.
Bite Work: Cooper has excellent prey drive and protective instincts. I would love to try Mondioring with him, but unfortunately, there are very few facilities in Hungary, so we must stick with classic bite work.
Canicross: Since he was 1.5 years old, Cooper and I have competed in Canicross races. Since he pulls hard, he performs better over shorter distances, although we have competed several times at 5 kilometers (3 miles) with good results. Cooper’s best placements have been 1st place at 1,5 kilometers (0.9 miles) and 3rd place at 2,5 kilometers (1.5 miles). Of course, Canicross is a team sport, and a lot depends on me. I believe I am the weak link, because if Cooper really breaks into a run, I am unable to keep up with him. Nowadays, we do a lot of long distance runs so he has to run next to me at a slower pace.
Dog Dancing: This is a sport that IGP fans don’t consider much in many cases, though I think it’s one of the hardest and most beautiful dog sports. By 3 years old, Cooper had learned 50 commands and/or hand signals. We regularly practice to make these tasks perfect. For me, this is the task I find to be the most relaxing and Cooper also enjoys it very much. Unfortunately, there are not currently any competitions, but I would like to take part in some Dog Dancing competitions in the future.
Mokka is a dominant bitch, and she is the pack leader among our dogs, although she is not aggressive. She is an independent thinker and enjoys doing any task for her owners. While working, she ignores other dogs and humans, but she is friendly and open with humans and other dogs. Mokka is energetic and loves to run. She prefers to run at her own pace, but she also likes to pull, whether it’s hiking or canicross. She is motivated by food and toys. She will work with anyone, but always keeps her eyes on her owners.
Obedience: In obedience, she has outstanding talent. She is focused, and clear-headed. She learns quickly and is able to perform complex tasks with little practice.
Bite Work: For Mokka, bite work is a game she loves very much. She is a fast learner and performs tasks quickly. She has a clear head and is easily controlled.
SAR training: Due to Mokka’s independence, she is very talented in finding people. She is currently training as an SAR dog. She is confidently searching and her indication is firm.
