Multi Group Winning, Multi Group Placing

Kovu is our first show dog here at Alue and he has gone above and beyond our wildest expectations! 
Kovu is 37lbs, 24" and is silver sable. Kovu is a balanced, moderate male with good movement, lovely tight feet, and a great shoulder assembly. He has nice chest depth and a nicely muscled rear. He has a good chin, correct dark points, and is a hair growing machine. He is a square boy with a nice, short back.  

Kovu has the absolute best temperament around, ask anyone who's met him! He has a nice medium drive with an excellent off switch. He can run himself into the ground if asked, but also loves to lay around and hang out with his favorite person, his momma!
 
Kovu is fully health tested beyond CHIC requirements for the breed with excellent PennHIP scores; he is in the top 10% for the breed and we couldn't be happier. He is also an outlier on Betterbred with no at risk haplotypes.

Kovu was awarded a VPX certificate from Versatility In Poodles. Shortly after, our membership application was approved and we are now members in good standing with VIPoodles. VIP is dedicated to the health and versatility of all varieties of Poodles. To be awarded an Excellent, Kovu had to have qualifying titles in different categories, a certain number of categories, and a set amount of points from those titles. I am so proud of this dog and I know his future holds greatness. 

Kovu is available to stud to outside approved bitches. Bitches must be tested to no less than CHIC level. Kovu will not be bred to any doodles, used to create doodles, merle mix poodles, underaged bitches, or any bitches with less than approved testing. Please use the contact form on the website for more information.

Kovu officially earned his Grand Championship title after a mix up with UKC's point check system prior to Premier. After the Illinois shows, Kovu was retired from the UKC conformation ring.  In IABCA he earned his International title in 2018 with all V1 ratings which is the highest you can recieve in IABCA. In 2019 he earned his National title with all V1s, each year he earned multiple group placments. Kovu's last IABCA show he earned his Reserve Best In Show Rare Breed Adult, and that was his official retirement show. We are now focusing on performance events!

Kovu and Halo competed in Brace at two show weekends this year! In Iowa they received all four Best In Shows, in Kansas they received two Best In Shows and two Reserve Best In Shows. It was a huge learning curve for all three of us, and while they ran me ragged, I'm glad we tried it out! I hope to do it again with a new generation. In TCKC, Kovu received all six first place awards.. On Saturday Kovu all earned his UKC SPOT title! SPOT is UKCs version of AKCs CGC. I am so proud of everything this dog did and I cannot wait to see what 2021 brings us. 


2021 Show Brags

  • 06/17/2021 UKC Premier Rally All Stars; Qualifying score of 81
  • 06/18/2021 UKC Premier; Qualifying score of 94
  • 06/18/2021 UKC Premier; Completed UKC Coursing title
  • 06/18/2021 UKC Premier; Qualifying run towards CAX title
  • 06/19/2021 UKC Premier; NQ on coursing run, pulled for paw pad injuries

At Premier this year Kovu Q'd in his rally trials after not practicing since October of last year! Our first trial was a bit rough, Kovu was very overstimulated, I was extremely nervous, it was not our finest moment. But we Q'd our All Star course and that may sound easy, but there were unfortunately many teams who did not. The next day we would have pulled out a 99 score if I had not gotten lost on the course and cost us quite the large point loss. Kovu then finished his coursing title and earned another leg towards his CAX. Unfortunately, the next day Kovu NQ'd on his run and in checking him over he had torn his paw pads on both a back and front foot - so for his safety and comfort he was pulled from his remaining rally and coursing runs. Hopefullly we can hit some more trails this year and add some new titles and Q's to this boys name!
