International CH Summer Brook Nothing but Love RA -
Tara is an extremely loving, people pleasing, smart girl and during our non-puppy times, she is my newest obedience trial partner. Tara had never been trained beyond basic obedience (sit, down, and wait) until she was over 12 months old. We had 3 months in between litters starting when she was 12 months old and she went through all 3 levels of rally completing her rally novice, rally advanced, and getting her first leg toward her rally excellent. She got first place ribbons at almost every competition including beating over 20 dogs twice. Her rally excellent title got put on hold as she came into season at her first trial and I had to pull her out. All of this before she was 15 months old. We completed her rally excellent title a few months later We started competing for her RAE title before she was 18 months going to only one trial so far before busyness with puppies caused us to again put our obedience competitions aside. At Tara's first trial for RAE, Tara received the very impressive High in Trial. In regular obedience, Tara earned a CD before she was 18 months and was trained to the CDX level before she ever competed for her CD. Hopefully Tara and I will be in an Open class to get her CDX soon. She is a joy to work with and a dog who is a lot of fun. I've never worked with a dog that loves to work and please as much as Tara does.
At home, Tara is always up for a jog or a hike or to chill at home with the family or to play fetch.

The following health tests are DNA tests and are recessive genes. As long as one parent is clear, no puppies will be affected.
PRA1 - Tara is either a clear or a carrier by parentage (Jack is clear and Hope is a carrier). We never tested Tara since all of our males are clear. She will only be bred to a clear.
PRA2 - Clear by Parentage (Go to Jack's page and Hope's page to verify); when both parents are clear of any recessive gene, all offspring will be clear.
Ichthyosis - Clear - click here to verify - We tested all of the girls in Tara's litter when they were very young. Tara was identified as Miss Pink as a puppy.
