Benelli is the dog that brought me into the wonderful world of Schutzhund. A lot of handler error has been placed upon this dog, yet she keeps on giving her all.
Benelli has some very nice dogs in her lines such as: Sirk vom Belchen, Quasy von der bosen Nachbarschaft, Javir vom Talka Marda, and Xiggo vom Haus Sevens.
Benelli has a natural desire and ability for tracking. She is a fast tracker but with training has learned to slow down and concentrate. She has medium ball and food drive, mixed with a great energy level. Benelli works almost entirely in defense during protection. She has absolutely no nerve issues, and is a champ with children.
At 57 pounds, with her beautiful pigment, well compacted body, nice croup, deep chest, and feminine build, Benelli has excellent conformation.
She achieved her BH at 18 months at O.G. Nashville Schutzhund und Polizei. On April 16, 2016, Benelli earned her IPO 1 under USCA Judge Nicki Banfield at Central Alabama Schutzhund Club: High IPO 1, High in Protection, and High in Trial.
She has OFA Good hips and OFA Normal elbows.
Benelli has been bred to Arnost von Schmidthausen, BH, OFA Excellent/Normal! Puppies are expected late May 2019!
