First Dog Shows with the
a-Litter pups!

IMG_8368 3.HEIC

November 2021

Early November, Atama, Mama Matryoshka IZBB and I made the nearly 7 hour drive out to Buffalo, NEW YORK USA for the Upstate Kennel Club's annual "Shepherd Spectacular" show! Atama participated in his first ever "puppy match" which is basically a large ring full of wild baby show dogs learning what it is like to be at a dog show. Atama did not win anything but it was an EXCELLENT experience for him. He was an amazing car buddy and the best hotel guest I could have asked for! So proud! He also met some of my closest friends and breeding colleagues from White Star Shepherds who have puppies only 2 weeks older than the A-Litter. We cannot wait for 2022 when all of our babies will show and do sports together! :) 

December 2021

Armada, Kavic (ATA-GUN NC), Matryoshka and I went up to Ann Arbor, Michigan USA for our last show of 2021 so that the puppies could participate in the puppy classes (as soon as we hit 6 months it is off to the competitions for points with the "big kids"!). All three of my wild things were crazy as ever out in the show rings BUT they had so so much fun doing it. The purpose for me to take a puppy into a puppy show is for the positive experiences with new dogs sharing a space with the pup, many many new people touching them and looking them over, and the experience of traveling! The babies did a great job in all areas. Very very pleased!

IT'S OFFICIAL:

NASHA COMANDA BECOMES

MEMBER OF FCI 

It is with great pleasure that we announce our acceptance to the FCI's list of kennels via our member country of Puerto Rico and the The Federación Canófila de Puerto Rico 
(FCPR).

The FCPR is a federated member of the FCI. All puppies produced by NASHA COMANDA will have their pedigrees registered with the FCPR as White Swiss Shepherds (WSS). Our breeding dogs are also all registered with them. In the United States, the only way to be able to register a WSS litter born in our country is for both of the parents to have their pedigrees verified and registered with the FCPR. This also allows us to be able to export our babies with the proper documentation to be able to be used in WSS breeding programs overseas as well as conformation shows.

 

We are absolutely thrilled to officially be recognized as a kennel with the largest organization in the world to recognize our wonderful breed.

Adventures in FLORIDA USA

The first meeting of

NASHA COMANDA + IZBB

Matryoshka and I made a 3 day drive all the way down to Miami, Florida USA (20 hours by car) to meet up with our first outside stud, and his amazing owner/breeder, Maria Guryeva. They travelled all the way from Moscow, Russia to meet with us!!

 

I am endlessly grateful for this amazing opportunity, lessons, and friendship Maria has given me and Matryoshka! Absolutely priceless. I am so grateful for being able to  do this all. 
This trip to Florida was one of the best experiences for me as a new breeder and as a trainer/handler. I learned so much from Maria and so much from my own dog. Matryoshka was the best co-pilot in the car and quickly accepted her new "boyfriend" as a companion. I could not ask for a better pair together.

 

I am very excited to say that they both showed on April 24-25 at the IABCA Florida Sunshine Sieger with success!

MATRYOSHKA IZBB

x1 Champion Class Winner

x1 BEST OF BREED Winner

Short listed for group. 

She received some **excellent** compliments from her judge, David R. Miller (International/USA). What an honor to be short listed for the 4th spot in herding breeds by this esteemed professional! 

URA-GUN IZBB

x3 Open Class Winner

x3 BEST OF BREED Winner

Babas was handled by his breeder/owner, Maria Guryeva for the FIRST TIME and they learned together how to be a successful team. It was so cool to watch them improve each time they entered the ring! Thank you for the wonderful critiques on our boy Babas from honorable judges David R. Miller( INT/USA), Sandra Shaw (USA), and Toby Frisch (USA). He even earned enough points to receive his IABCA International Champion title! Go team Babas! It was so cool to read all of the compliments that they gave him on his beautiful structure. I cannot wait to see what beautiful looking babies he gives our program in the future!! 

XOXO,

Matryoshka, Babas,
