"KODA BEAR"

STORIES ABOUT ME

 

Until he was about 3 years old, Koda went to work everyday with Nicole. She worked at a non-profit research lab at the time, doing research in cellular therapy. Koda was dubbed the “visiting scholar” by Nicole’s colleagues. He would sleep by the door in the lab. The UPS delivery people become so accustomed to Koda that he didn’t bark at them, they always gave him pats, and they sometimes brought him treats.

 

Koda is our best Finnish Lapphund off leash. Most of the Lappies can be taught effectively to be off leash as mature dogs and with the right training.  Like most Lappies trained off leash, Koda likes to run circles around his people, so he can herd them and keep track of them while we walk. He also herds wild deer off our property on command.

 

Koda disliked conformation when he was a puppy and yearling. Actually, he thought that the UKC shows were the stupidest idea ever -- why would you want to run around in a ring with other dogs when you could run around a play! He would rather play with the competition, and he taught us a lot about how to train a show dog to love showing. He is pointed in the UKC with 4 points.

 

Today, Koda enjoys running on his acreage, playing with puppies, road trips, boat trips, fishing, and walks. He is shown in the veteran's class and loves it because he is the centre of attention. Koda has been trained in obedience, but cannot perform with precision due to his joint pain. As a result, we have never competed with him.  Koda is currently training in rally-obedience, and may compete when he is ready to show what a veteran Lappy can do.
