Lanzo USCA GSD Nationals Protection

Lanzo Van Arne’s Hoeve is described by Brian Aghajani (Trainer, Author, & Photographer) as follows: 

 

"Lanzo Van Arne's Hoeve, MR1, IPO3, SG KKL is the Bo Jackson of Working Dog Sports. Bo Jackson is the only athlete in history to be named an All-Star in both baseball and football, and one of few to do so in two major sports.


Lanzo arguably did the equivalent in the world of dog sports by competing at nationals in both IGP (IPO) and Mondioring. In November 2017, Lanzo earned 6th place with 89/93/90 272 P at the USCA IPO Nationals. This by itself is an incredible accomplishment. But owner Samantha Barnes had the goal of also competing at the Mondioring Nationals. The GSD breed does not commonly compete in Mondioring, Malinois have an advantage due to being lighter and quicker. But Lanzo has an advantage over most GSDs, as he is compact and Malinois like quick. It took 12 months for them to make it happen. Lanzo is a son of Quardes von Der Staatsmache, who has sired Debby vom Eisernen Kreuz, the 2017 WUSV World Champion, as well as Dexter vom Eisernen Keruez who is a US National Champion. He was handled by Brad Hardin, they were the only alternate breed (non-Malinois) at the 2019 USMRA National Championships. They didn’t just show, they delivered! They took home 2nd Place in Level 1 with 182 points."

2016 GSDCA Championship 

Competitor

Loverboy Vom Salztalblick, AKA: Forrest, is a German Import who has achieved multiple working titles, an AD, and scored V overall for both his IPO2 and IPO3. In addition, he is a previous competitor in the 2016 GSDCA Nationals placing 6th with scores of 99, 87, 88 (274) SG total. 

 

Forrest exhibits a strong, confident temperament with a tremendous desire to please his handler. He has excellent food and toy drive. His tracking skills are exceptional and intense. He exhibits genetically full and crushing grips and prefers to push into his grip rather than pull.

In everyday life, Forrest is a neutral dog with a great "Off Switch". He is happy to just hang out or put his head in a lap when the "work" is all done. He is a great traveling companion and joins his people and his pack on many camping adventures. He is happy to share a walk on a split lead with an IGP companion and is quite confident on any busy sidewalk or outing (see pictures).

 

Forrest is not overly fond of the cat but has decided to coexist with him anyway. LOL! A question that often comes up when we visit with clients considering a working-line GSD is, "Will my dog/puppy be able to get along with other farm animals like chickens, goats, horses, etc.?" Forrest's answer for this is, "Yes, I can get along with other animals and do not bother the chickens." :)

At Forrest's current age of 9 years old, he weighs in at 80lbs, is in excellent health, and shows no signs of slowing down!

"Arek is a large male showing super drives for work and a willingness to work for his handler.  He shows strong ball and medium food drive.  His hunt drives are very nice.  His favorite part of the work is protection where he shows a full and firm grip and desires to fight the decoy.  Arek is social, clear headed, and great with kids and other dogs..."  "Arek is a great asset to our program to have balance in drives and temperament. Arek is always happy" (Weberhaus German Shepherds). Owner, Malinda Weber, said that Arek is the type of dog that thinks everyone is there to especially see him.

SG KACKEY Z GARGAMELLU ipo3, uha, igp3, psa-pdc

click to view

"Kackey is an import from Denmark, born in Prague. He has a full, swallowing grip with insane power. He sits in the drive and pulls with his entire body. He thrives in the fight and will bring it to the helper every time.

He is a natural tracker. He enjoys tracking and is phenomenal at doing it, with high tracking scores in all his routines. He has high prey drive, medium/high food drive, and high defense with good aggression. He is incredibly clear headed and does a great job of staying with his handler, even when pressure is heavy. Clean obedience with good power in his movement. Spectacular biddability. 

Kackey is social with adults, children, cats, and small animals. He is very handler oriented and can come off as aloof if there’s no “reason” to interact with another person. He enjoys the company of female dogs and puppies, but is not super social towards other intact males. He is not over the top with his dominance but will not allow dogs to push him too far, either. Wonderful off switch and can live comfortably in the house with zero concern; his favorite thing to do is cuddle with the cat."-Von Der Shockeyhaus
