~ DOG OF THE MONTH ~
Each month starting in February 2024, the PDS team will be choosing a dog at random to participate in this fun feature.
If chosen the PDS team will contact you for information. We can't wait to introduce the amazing dogs that play at PDS to all of you!
The Labrador Retriever is one of Canada’s own breeds and one of the most popular breeds in the world, with it’s famously friendly, outgoing and high-spirited temperament the lab has more than enough affection to go around for the entire family.
They are companiable housemates and socialize well with other humans and dogs alike. But don’t mistake their easygoing personality for low energy: the Lab is an enthusiastic athlete that requires plenty of exercise and activity to maintain physical and mental fitness.
We are excited to highlight a labrador retriever who is as versatile as she is beautiful this month…
Starling, TDGCH MLIOCH Oak Lane’s Fly me to the Moon S CAX CGN WC RATS TDCH-M TEAM1P LI-I LIO-SF LIO-SP LIO-SS LIO-ST LIO-HD LIO-SV LIO-SD With an impressive 34 titles to her credit, in a variety of venues including Hunting, Barn Hunt, Trick Dog, Lost Item Recovery and more, she truly is as versatile as her breed was meant to be.
Her favourite thing to do is be outside exploring her home province of Alberta, an accomplished hunting dog she excels as a pheasant hunter – she has an amazing nose, never gets tired and loves to retrieve birds.
She also has success tackling huge Canadian geese out in the field, which is impressive given her small stature. And though she tries her best as a waterfowl hunter she is not very stealthy as he constantly wagging tail rattles the vegetation around her and makes it hard to hide and go unnoticed.
Starling sure doesn’t go unnoticed at dog sports; she is incredibly smart and catches on to concepts very quickly in training. Some of her favourite sports are shed hunting, Barn Hunt, sprinters, lost item recovery and trick dog.
Starling and her human partner Jessica recently took part in the PDS Winter Online Lost Item challenge and became the fist team in the challenge to earn all 11 Online Lost Item titles, including her Master Lost Item Online Champion title and 7 different specialist titles!
Next up for this impressive team is the world of competitive obedience and they hope to try for their first title in 2024.
When Starling isn’t busy with hunting or dog sports, she works as a therapy dog at McEwan University and enjoys spending time at home with her people and cats.
We can’t’ wait to see where this year takes this dynamic team!
Congratulations Starling on being names Prairie Dog Sports Dog of the Month for February 2024!
