Halligalli Hitz the Bigtime & Cheviot Dos
Breeder: A. Herzog
Owner: Daniela Gerber-Mattli
Herding Trails Class 3
Cheviot Dos is bred by Anthony Iley and is a son of Anthonys Chester ISDS 250940 (2007 Eng.Nat. 5 place, son of Paul Tunbulls Don ISDS 212786). He’s sired 21 litters (118 puppies), all healthy with lovely temperament and a great work ethic. Most of his offspring work livestock or compete in Obedience and Agility. Dos himself is beautifully put together – compact and strong build, nice long neck and fantastic shoulder placement which allows him to work low on the ground but yet super fast, with great stamina and quick movements.
Here is a video of him working sheep:
Daniela, his owner describes him as a very sociable dog with people and dogs and very adaptable where ever she takes him. He’s confident and calm around the house and within the pack but very switched on when working, easily motivated by play and super speedy. Up until a horrible accident which ended his career as a sheepdog, he was enthusiastic and pushy with natural flanks and outrun. Always correct but yet very fast and keen.
It wasn’t an easy journey, finding Itzy’s dream husband but Dos has been playing on my mind since I saw pictures of his litter with Hazel, Dumf and Galwy Electrifying, bred by Gesche Beile (Ettikogarten, Germany). Hazel is Lia’s aunt so very similar blood lines. The mating Dos x Hazel produced amazing dogs, beautiful inside and out and drew my attention to this handsome dark tri dog which I’m totally convinced is the perfect match for Itz.
Thank you Daniela for entrusting me and allowing me to use your wonderful boy for Itzy. I can’t wait for the most beautiful little tri colour faces!
