Character: Pasi has from a pup been reserved towards strangers. Today he copes well out side our home, and takes contact to people, but he doesn't care for other people than our own family. At home Pasi is still very sceptical with new people and is easily trying to control the situation or the movement of people.
Pasi has a lot of "will-to-please", but he is at the same tame very soft, especially soft towards his own people. Sometimes he has trouble enduring exercises that are repeated several times. Sometimes during training he can get pressured and starts to concentrate on showing calming signs than concentrating on the exercise on hand. He is sensitive to my bodylanguage which challenges me mainly :)
With other dogs he is playful, polite and not a bully, but will not tolerate anyone jumping at his face. If he feels he has to discipline a dog he will say it once and so that the other dog will understand. He will not say for fun or without cause. Nevertheless he is very owning towards our other dogs and gets jealous of them. He has become a matriarc in our packt and is respected by all others. HE is the absolute best dog to teach puppies to respect others and yet he is a huge safety to to youngsters. He loves taking care of the pack too.
Pasi is trained in agility and obedience but we have only competed a few times and he is mostly retired from both. We have been on sheep a few times and maybe we'll get to that bait more now.
Pasi has been shown several times, mainly for fun and socialization, but he has been rewarded with two CAC, two res-CAC and one res-CACIB. He also has two veteran- CAC from Estonia. We will keep on showing him and see if we can get him the last CAC needed for the Finnish CH title and then he will also become Estonian Veteran Champion.
Pasi was character tested fall 2010 with an outstanding result +175 and secure to shots. I have done a lot of work with him and was so pleased to see how well he coped with the test and he really didn't need me. =) HERE is the video.
