Declan was imported to the USA from Iceland at 9 months of age in May 2013. Shown on a very limited basis of only 10 times total during the Summer;
he was awarded Major Reserve at his very first show and accumulated 2-2 point wins (one a broken major), 3 Best Puppy, Puppy Group 1 over 10 other hounds
the first and only day competing in group~all at that first circuit.
Do we believe that exhibitors sitting/standing in a ring directly behind an Active Judge is an intimidation technique? Yes
Do we believe that exhibitors have any business in a ring at any time other than when showing their dog to the judge? No
Do we believe that the same rules apply to everyone? Yes
Does sportsmanship apply to everyone? Yes
Do we only announce a Win OVER Competition on any of our dogs? Yes
Do we feel that announcing a "win" over no competition or one's own stacked dogs is misleading? Yes
Do we always provide a verification link to any win? Yes and we provide them to losses as well.
Do we show to breeders/owners in our dog's pedigree? No, we recuse ourselves.
Is there some reason why you purchased from Iceland?
When considering a purchase; we look at a number of factors including pedigree, temperament,
expression and coat with the primary factor being what we feel is correct conformation.
It is irrelevant to us if the dog is from an unknown or Timbuktu--so long
as it has what we are looking for and what we feel will fit into our program.
