Echo is our pick Shiver puppy. Echo is very sweet, like her dam. She loves to learn and adores the kids. In fact, Jordan, our 9 year old daughter is in charge of her training and will do the competing with Echo. Jordan’s favorite dog has always been Shiver, so this is her Shiver. Echo is larger than Shiv and has TONS of coat. Her structure is amazing and we are hoping she will pass this on to her puppies. Echo loves the ball, frisbee, tug, and swimming. She is like Shiver in that she spends more time in the house with us than she does out playing with the other dogs. She has seen stock and can't wait for her chance to get in with them. She seems to have her mother's style and eye and will, hopefully, have a bit more push in her. She loves to do tricks and can't go up to anyone without showing off her rolling over, playing dead, or wave tricks. Jordan trained her a ton of tricks as a puppy and she commonly prefers doing those when we are trying new things. She tried out barn hunt and loved it. Echo broke a toe at 8 months old and that put her training for sports on hold, but she learned some extra tricks in the meantime. Unfortunately, we were unable to keep her cast on long enough and she rebroke the toe. Rather than put her through another 2 months of rest, we elected to amputate that toe. Now that she is recovered, she is in training and doing great. Echo will train for Flyball, agility, herding, dock dog, obedience, rally, trick, and anything else she has interest in.
Echo is training for trick dog. She has earned her first titles. She loves to learn new things, but can get nervous about certain things. She likes the tricks that require movement and are more active. She does not understand doing the more stationary tricks.
Echo is a natural at Frisbee. She loves air time and believes that every Frisbee, ball, or toy should be caught in the air. She lives to fly over the other dog's heads to catch whatever we are throwing. Her only fault is her handler. Jordan is learning to become a better teammate so they can start competing.
