Lets Get It Started!

My name is Anna Denisova. I am from Russia. I live in Italy (on a beautiful Lake of Varese almost on a border with Switzerland). I am an R+ dog trainer and a French Bulldog breeder. Thou this blog is not about me, but my new dog Colistos Iris, who is Cirneco dell'Etna puppy.

 So, who is Iris?
First time I heard of a breed about a year ago from my husband, Carlo. I saw those pictures in Google of elegant red dogs with big ears. They did and still remind me my mom's Abyssinian cat - Knopka.
As a dog trainer and a breeder I give equaly big importance to both Nature and Nurture. That's why, when I had a pleasure to get to know Mrs. Butt, the owner of Colistos Kennel, I knew my cirneco would be Colisto's. Mrs Butt is not only a knowledgeble breeder with a unique ability to combine the grace and the power in her dogs, but she is a wonderful puppy nanny too. Choosing the puppy from her I feel I have a guarantee for both puppy's mental and phisical health as well as a wise mentor who would be there for us through out the dog's life. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, TATIANA, FOR THIS WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY.
So, kennel decision was made and very soon I wrote Tatiana that I would be much honored to buy a female puppy with show potential from her. She had two litter's at the moment. One out of Verna del Gelso Bianco (pictured above), who is my most favorite cirneco, because exactly her foto made me fall in love with a breed months ago. Verna had only males. Other litter was out of Iside and Pablo  - two wonderful dogs of her. There were 2 girls availiable, so we agreed to wait and see how they grow. Time was passing by,  regulary Tatiana would put new pictures of the litter on her Facebook profile, and one day I saw him. I said to myself : " No no no no, male is not good for me. I need a female."
I knew I was already in love.
Today Iris is 6 weeks old and he is still in Moscow with his mom & littermates. He will be arriving home on 3d of October. Needless to say I can't wait to see him and all the house is getting ready for the red fox arrival. I'd love Iris to become a real "trainer's dog" and may be one day agility champion. So this time of waiting is dedicated to thinking, planning, writing training plans and preparing all the equipment. But more on this in my next post!
