GCH Gekko’s Wild Blue Yonder RN CGC TT VA


GCH Gekko's Wild Blue Yonder RN CGC TT VA
Breeders/Owners: Monica & Greg Colvin
Roger arrived on June 7, 2010 and we knew he was the one to keep soon after! Aside from his physical attributes, Roger has a unique, sweet and outgoing nature that it truly special. From his big "Roo-roo's" with a stuffy toy in his mouth to his "snowplow" schnuggles—his personality is big and happy. He is a young dog that is very eager to please, hopefully we will be adding to his titles.

As of this writing he is a group-placing Bronze Level Grand Champion, always owner-handled by Monica. Part of his VA requirements were fulfilled via his "Community Service": twice appearing as "Guest Dog Of The Week" at the AKC Museum of The Dog in St. Louis, MO, and walking in a Pancreatic Cancer benefit, "Walk With The Dogs."

About the Akita

A natural monument in Japan, the Akita’s proud heritage includes hunting large game such as bear, elk, and boar. This powerful and dignified member of the Working Group is renowned for courage and loyalty, but may not be tolerant of other animals. His luxurious double coat can include any combination of vibrant colors. Aloof toward strangers, they form strong family bonds. Highly intelligent with keen sense of humor, the Akita responds best to respectful commands and training techniques that rely on motivation rather than force. Strong-willed and proud, Akitas are not receptive to abusive methods. Akitas originated in Japan many, many years ago, and have been designated a natural monument of Japan. They are a large, impressive breed with natural guarding instincts. While generally reserved with people they don’t know, Akitas are affectionate with their family. They tend to be independent, and while they will always know where you are in your home, they do not need constant attention as do some of the more dependent breeds.
