I fell in love with the breed back in 2009 when my girlfriend bought me my first Rottweiler.
It was love at first sight. I didn't know much about the breed, so started doing research to
learn what it takes to be a great owner of this breed. After getting online and reading some books,
I found out that I was about to have my hands full. Around 2010, we found an IPO club and started
training obedience and working towards our BH, which we where able to accomplish at 16 months old.
Then we moved onto IPO1. With the help of my club, we were also able to accomplish it! Around 2013,
we found out our dog had throat cancer and wasn't going to live long. It was a hard time for us.
Within two months, we had to do what was best and let her go...
It wasn't until late 2015 I purchased our beloved Desi who has made my world that much better.
Daddy's girl. Desi is 25 months old and is Multi V1 and AKC pointed.
She has her BH and CGC, as well as 2 qualifying legs towards her RN title.
She is also actively training in scent detection and IPO.
My 16 month old male, Enok, was titled AKC Champion at the age of 13 months.
He is training for his BH and also his RN title. I am a member of multiple organizations and local clubs.
I have volunteered for clubs putting on Sieger Shows and want to continue
to help with the growth of RKNA and its future. I hope to see you at a show or trial soon!
