Getting a new German Shepherd puppy is an exciting adventure for any new puppy owner. When bringing a new puppy into your home, you’re welcoming a new family member into your lives. German Shepherds make wonderful companions and can easily blend into your family environment. As we all know, when bringing a new puppy into the home, many questions and steps can be taken to make it as easy as possible. Canine Extreme has had 25+ years working with these fantastic dogs, and in this article, you can find some of the most common questions we receive when welcoming a new puppy into the home.
Canine Extreme Demonstration at WEC
With the recent opening of the World Equestrian Center (WEC), we’re happy to announce that we had the privilege of performing a live demonstration in their grand outdoor arena. The team at WEC have done an outstanding job at creating a top of the line facility for the abundant horse disciplines and catered their facility to other events such as conventions, shows, and canine events. We would like to give a special thanks to our team at Canine Extreme and the WEC Team for helping with the success of the Canine Extreme demonstration. We can’t wait to be back at WEC and look forward to visiting, performing, and hosting future events there!
What is a better way to tie in the holiday than hoasting a canine demonstration? This is exactly what the Canine Extreme team did as we performed a live demonstration on December 26th and 27th at the World Equestrian Center. It was an exciting event that featured agility, obedience, show work, and protection work. This was accompanied by clear skies and beautiful cool weather that you could tell put some extra pep in everyone’s step, especially the dogs.

In this portion of the event, we got to see one of our Junior handlers work with the up and coming star named Nando. The connection that these two showed on the field was sure to keep the crowd’s attention. Raul and Colby were also on the field, answering questions while working their dogs. Colby was working with the ever so popular Didi. You could tell as soon as they stepped in front of the crowd that Didi loved the applause and would do his best to keep it going. Korado was the third dog on the field and was accompanying Raul as he engaged with the crowd. Korado was sure to show off his outstanding obedience and power, making it look effortless and fluid.
WEC Sandra 122620 006Obi, Chelsea, Burns, and Ghost, along with their handlers, were the stars of the agility portion of this demonstration. The fast-paced agility did a great job of encapturing the crowd’s attention. Obi and Ghost put their speed and agility to the test as they whipped around the course and really worked for their applause. Then we had Chelsea and Burns, who we like to call the “biggest” team member of Canine Extreme. Chelsea is a Yorkshire Terrier, and Burns is a Corgie, and they proved to the crowd that the size of the dog does not matter when it comes to agility!

In this portion, we were happy to welcome Knut to the field, who was more than thrilled to show off his powerful and clean protection work. We were also excited to bring Colby and Didi back onto the field to work with Raul to show off their skills. It is always amazing to watch Colby and Raul work together as they work together flawlessly. You can see the years of practice, teamwork, trust, and understand come into play as they perform an outstanding show of protection work that never has a dull moment.
The Canine Extreme team, humans and dogs, enjoyed putting on this event and look forward to performing more in the future. It’s a wonderful way to give our team, juniors, dogs, and the crowd an enjoyable and knowledgeable experience. The process of this event could not have been done without the WEC team and the hard work of the Canine Extreme team, who gave everything 100%.
Different Types of German Shepherd Colors and Coats
German Shepherds are marvelous dogs who boast many features that appeal to our eyes. One of their main features are the colors and coat varieties that they can have. In this article, you will find a brief breakdown of some of the colors and coats of a German Shepherd.
Staying Cool In The Heat
Nothing says summer like sand between the paws, ice water by the pool, and walks in the sunshine. Summer is a time full of fun, adventures, and outdoor activities. While we all know how “cool” our dogs like to look over summer, like Kongo does while rocking his summer shades by the pool, it’s essential to remember to keep our dogs “cool” from the heat as well. Rest assured, while overheating and heatstroke are severe, with a bit of education and awareness of ways to keep cool, you and your pet can continue to enjoy all the fun activities that summer has to offer.
