OSKU (HERDING INSTINCTS NAKKE NAKUTTAJA) is our imported boy from from Herding Instincts Kennel (Sweden) who joined us in 2013. Up to the age of 18 months, Osku was shown lightly in a number of countries, including Sweden and Finland, with some excellent results, including:
*BIS-puppy for Finnish Lapphund judge and breeder, Jukka Kuusisto (Specialist Show),
*Classwinner with HP for Rose-Marie Emery (Japaneze spitz breeder) (All breeds)
*Class winner with Exellent and CK (Champion quality) for Carin Åkesson (Shetland Sheepdog breeder)(Specialist)
*Class winner with Excellent and CK (Champion quality)at the international show in Växjö (Specialist show)
In Australia, Osku gained his Championship within 12 months against strong competition in the show ring. Along the way, he has collected multiple BOBs/RUBOBs, including a 25point BOB at the FLCV-FLCNSW 2015 Border Challenge, a real highlight for us so far! More important than his show wins, however, is Osku's work as an ambassador for the breed - he loves people and attention, and is always happy to accompany us out on breed promotion days.
Osku has what I consider to be the ideal temperament, and we are thankful that he appears to pass this on to his offspring. He has to date sired four Australian Champions, one with a herding title and a Delta Dog Therapy accreditation. He has another three offspring well on their way to their titles, and his impact on our kennel and breeding program cannot be underestimated. Moreover, however, is that Osku is an integral part of our family, and we thank his breeder, Cattlin Marques, for entrusting us with her lovely boy.
