This stunning, young dog has it all! We could not be more pleased…outstanding conformation, sound structure & movement, and lovely temperament. Kudos to Tanner's "Best Friend" and handler, Diana Wilson, and Breeder/Owner, Lynn Brady, on the fabulous job of conditioning and handling Tanner to his record breaking AKC show wins that made him the Top Winning Kuvasz in breed history.  

Tanner is currently training in Obedience and Therapy to round out his achievements.

Thank you to the many judges and "Fans" who appreciate Tanner as an outstanding representative of the breed who encompasses the Total Package!!!

Conformation

5/22/2008 New Champion and Best In Specialty Show
Robbie began his conformation career with four consecutive three point majors in June of 2006.
In April 2008, Gene and Kathy decided they would like to attend the Kuvasz Club National Specialty in Bloomington, IL and wanted to enter Robbie. To our delight he became the first kuvasz to win the KCA National Specialty from the classes, to complete his championship.
In the Kuvasz Quarterly, Fall 2008, pg. 31, the National Specialty Judge, Mr. Norm Herbel is quoted as saying “If I had to choose one of those dogs to guard my livestock, he would be it”. Mr. Herbel said that the winners dog (Robbie) “had all the characteristics that make the breed what it is supposed to be, and described him as “rangy, standing above the others and alert”.
