Phyre vom Patiala (call name Emmy) DOB 01.26.2010 was purchased from Ajay Singh of Zwinger vom Patiala. Ajay and I discussed what I was looking for in my next dog and what my priorities and concerns were. When I decided to buy another puppy, I had only one vision - Javir vom Talka Marda. I had seen Javir compete at the 2008 WUSV in Cincinnati and was wowed by his performance. I knew that Ajay's dog and Javir's littermate Jilnannah vom Talka Marda was just about to whelp a litter. Ajay picked the right female out of the litter and I got exactly what I wanted.
I was very excited to purchase one of these pups! Emmy's dam, Jilnannah is from the world famous J-Litter vom Talka Marda that produced Javir (4 times BSP finishing 3rd, 1st, 2nd & 18th. 3 times WUSV finishing 11th, 3rd & 4th and two times Universal Sieger). John (5 times BSP), Jenna (1 time BSP), Jimbeam, Jarek (South African Nationals) and Justin (Working Police Dog PSH2). Jilnannah successfully competed at the USA Nationals and tied for the highest scoring female in the protection phase (90). In Emmy's 5 generation pedigree (62 dogs) only 8 have less than SchH 3 or IPO 3 and 29 and FH titles (advanced tracking)
Phyre's sire is Aro von der kleinen Birke - the breeding was recommended by Horst and Michaela Knoche of vom Talka Marda as they had bred Quaste (mother of the J litter) to him. Aro is very quick, has very good fighting drive and a very good work ethic. Aro is sable with short firm and straight back with very firm limbs and is good in breeding.
Emmy is a HOT dog - Handler Owned and Trained by myself since the age of 8 weeks. It takes a village to IPO/CKC train a dog and I would like to thank everyone whose help and guidance have enabled Emmy & I to achieve so much. Emmy is one of the most titled German Shepherd Dogs in Canada and is a member of the GSSCC Schutzhund 3 club. No other GSD, that we are aware of, has an IPO 3 and CKC/AKC Utility titles along with titles in CKC Tracking, AKC Rally Obedience and Scent Detection.
Emmy is our foundation female and is everything and more we think a GSD should be. She is the mother of our A, B, C and D litters. She is an amazing mother both physically and socially.
Emmy is the mother of Askew who continued our breeding program. Emmy will be 14 in January 2024 and is in great shape for her age. To keep her at her best she participates in hydrotherapy, canine conditioning and has regular acupuncture, physiotherapy and chiropractic visits.
Emmy is now retired from breeding.
