Key Accomplishments
Nikon is titled in Schutzhund (tracking, obedience, and protection), SDA (tracking, obedience, and protection), flyball, agility, dock diving, lure coursing, and conformation (UKC and SV). In Schutzhund, Nikon's "TSB" rating is "pronounced" and he was High SchH1 and High In Trial Obedience. Nikon completed is first time breed survey in November 2012 earning Koerklasse 1. He also has his AKC Canine Good Citizen, American Temperament Test Society TT, and herding instinct evaluations. Nikon is OFA certified Normal elbows and Good hips (he has a transitional vertebra) and has no known health issues, allergies, digestive problems, etc.

Aside from his titles and sport accomplishments Nikon is a well-mannered house dog. He brings drive and energy to sports and work yet can be "just a pet". He lives in a small home with other dogs (including an ever changing lineup of foster dogs). He is calm and settles in a crate while traveling and comepting, but is rarely crated or kenneled at home and is not anxious or destructive. He travels at least once a month for events (training, shows, tournaments, trials) and is a trustworthy travel companion. He is naturally protective of his owner and property, but possesses a high threshold for aggression meaning he is very safe around people and dogs that pose no threat. Each year he helps demonstrate obedience and bite prevention at a local elementary school and represents the school in summer parades.

Conformation & Movement
nikon
While not extreme, Nikon's movement is fluid and correct; he shows balance, open shoulder angulation and front reach, strong rear drive, a firm back, tight ligaments, and correct musculature. Nikon's movement has always been very dry and firm, even at 4 months of age when he was first shown. He does not have weak or loose hocks and carries a strong, firm topline.

Koer critique, KKL1 2013/2014: "Medium size, medium strong male with good expression and pigmentation, high withers, firm back, nice top- and underline, very good angulations in front and rear and balanced chest proportions. Steps correctly coming and going and shows fluid gaits with free front reach and effective rear drive. Sure temperament; TSB pronounced; does out."

Nikon is 3 times VP rated, 1 time SG rated (13 months), and will be shown in the working class for his V rating as soon as we can enter a show that doesn't get canceled. He is a UKC Champion and has 1 leg toward his Grand Champion.

Nikon's hips are OFA Good and elbows OFA Normal (24 months). His eyes are OFA Normal (June 2013). His Dr. Dodds Thyroid 5 panel was normal (January 2013). He is clear/normal for DM.

Future Goals
Nikon is currently in semi-retirement mode. He has given me so much, always game for any form of training or competition, and has earned his position of Senior Home Protector and Couch Warmer. He has free reign of the house 24 hours a day and still travels with me to training and competitions. Our training facility was completely devastated by a tornado in the summer of 2014 and is still in the process of being rebuilt. We are competing in flyball tournaments when we can despite the lack of team training in 2015. Nikon is also doing UAD and NADD dock diving during the summer months. My goal is for him to reach 10,000 U-FLI points. His legacy will continue through his son, Legend, who is already training and competing in agility, flyball, lure coursing, and dock diving.

Pedigree
Nikon's pedigree is a combination of successful show line type and strong working qualities. His fatherline offers successful West German show "type" while his motherline offers strong Kirschental lines, bringing some older working bloodlines closer up in his pedigree than many show lines. All the dogs in his 5 generation pedigree (and most beyond) are SchH or HGH titled. Nikon's grandsire is 3X VA rated German Vice Sieger Quenn vom Loeher Weg SchH3 FH1. His 5-generation pedigree includes 17 VA dogs, Other notable dogs in his pedigree include Ursus von Batu, Eiko vom Kirschental, Xitta vom Kirschental, Bernd vom Lierberg, & Mutz von der Peltztierfarm.
