Yoshka came to us right after the New Year, 1998. He was bred by and spent his first 10.5 weeks with Sigrid Cargile in Prundale, California. Together with Kevin, her then 8 year old son, Sigrid did a tremendous job of giving Yoshka and his five litter mates a perfect start into their life.

Yoshka's outstanding characteristics besides longevity are ideal coat, strong muzzle, good topline, perfect paw placement, little gray for age, fantastic working temperament.

His puppy hood seemed to fly by in no time. We started training right away with first puppy kindergarten, intermediate classes, moving on to Novice Obedience. Yoshka became a true working dog. He has finished his LCA Companion Dog Excellent Title and earned the High in Trial at the LCA 2003 Specialty in Healdsburg with 194 points in Open. At the same show he placed fourth in the Champion class with an excellent rating.

Yoshka is the perfect mix of a couch potato and a Turbo-Berger - enough energy to race around with other dogs but calm and relaxed at home.

At the LCA 2000 Specialty in Seaside (V1 open class), the LCA 2003 Specialty in Healdsburg (V4 Champion Class), as in smaller shows before and after, he proved that he is not just a wonderful working dog but also an excellent representative of the breed. He earned his championship title in 2000 and is approved by the Leonberger Club of America for Stud Services. Side by side, chilled or frozen semen breedings are possible.
