Darlene - Putting any titles on an OES is impressive, because you're right that you don't see many of them out there competing in Obedience! It's the same with a lot of the breeds - not so many out there doing any competitions.

I tried my hand judging at a few fun matches but discovered quickly that I spent so much time watching the handler / dog team working that I forgot to write down points plus or minus..... not cut out for judging just competing I guess! Anyways, competing is way way WAY more fun as far as I'm concerned!

That guy in the last picture sure had his hands full. Those pictures look like a lot of fun.

Kathy, my friend had an OES with a tail. He was a rescue and she got put down a lot for him having a tail. He was a good boy, though, and they couldn't really put her down on his training. I think he got his UCD (Is that right?) in obedience and there wasn't even one other OES competing around here in any level of obedience. My friend is now an AKC judge. Not sure how many breeds she has now. I know she did Akitas and she was wanting to do all working and herding breeds.

Beautiful photographs of some very beautiful dogs!

Thanks for sharing these, Jeanne!

I know The Netherlands is one of the countries that has banned tail / ear docking, but I still find it odd seeing breeds like the OES with tails..

ohh thank you so much for posting...how adorable are they?? i used to show..worked for a professional handler and often had to take dogs in when she was occupied in another ring...next to my newfs and samoyeds, the OES were top of my list with otterhounds. took hours to groom the OES..but they were so sweet and so pretty when i'd get them finished!

That's the dog from the little mermaid! I wore that VHS out growing up, have dyed my hair red since age twelve (L'Oreal Red Penny 7R), and just got a mermaid blanket for Christmas that my mom crocheted. Kinda a fangirl. emoticon

OMG that one where five are running at the camera. I wish I liked to run as much as dogs do.
