Novice Trick Titles

Some of the family’s who have Kazuri dogs have been working on their Novice Trick Title.

What is that you ask? Well let me tell you. AKC has provided a fun way to bond and play with your dog. Usually you would go to an event and a moderator would watch you.

But with COVID-19, AKC has kindly opened up the rules to allow submissions via video. Each trick needs to be done twice on the video. At the Novice level, you can use treats. At the higher levels, only certain tricks can be “baited”, so your dog has to know your signals or instructions. You can read about it and watch videos on how to train your dog here: https://www.akc.org/sports/trick-dog/ They have a list of the tricks at the Novice level. I love that one of them is getting into their kennel 🙂 http://images.akc.org/pdf/trick_dog_novice.pdf If you are unsure what a trick means, you can look it up in the official guidelines here: http://images.akc.org/pdf/trick_eval_guide.pdf

Once your video is ready, submit this paperwork : http://images.akc.org/pdf/trick_dog_novice.pdf along with this form: https://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn-origin-etr.akc.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/20174058/Video-Verification-form.pdf?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20200234_cgc_trick-dog-video-verification to the moderator LYDIA JOINER – lydiajoiner@yahoo.com If she determines that your tricks were good enough, she will sign the paperwork and send it back to you and then you email it to AKC with $25 and your dog has a Trick title or TKN by their name.

Here are some of the wonderful pups, bred here at Kazuri, who have worked on their TKN title since Covid-19 started. I am SO proud of each and every one of them and their owners. <3

Ruthie – Kazuri’s Loyal Friend TKN (at 7 months young)

Gracie – Kazuri’s Gracie TKN (2 years)

Rowan – LoKazuri Star Life Is But A Dream TKN TKI *combined breeding effort between myself and Lockestar cavaliers* (2 years old)

Novice Title
Intermediate Title (TKI)

Our final week with Kiss and Denny’s pups together

I can hardly believe that this week is here. After all the weeks raising and loving on these precious little ones, it is time for some to start leaving the nest and going to their forever homes since they are almost 10 weeks. This week’s photos are bittersweet for that reason so I will post lots of them – I took them playing in the yard – real puppy life – the fun of life outside the pen 🙂

What an honor it has been to be their first momma and get to love on them these 10 weeks. And now I get to pass the torch on to wonderful families who will love them just as much. I know they will be spoiled rotton. Thankfully for my heart, only two leave this weekend. And, one, Eliza – now called Summer, is staying here at Kazuri, so that does make things a little less painful.

So without further ado, please enjoy photos one last time of Earl Grey (formerly known as Hamilton), Ginger (formerly known as Angelica), Watson (formerly known as Aaron) and Lily (formerly known as Peggy). <3

Thank you for your interest in my puppies and breeding program. These Cavalier King Charles Spaniels puppies are all sold. I do have a waitlist for my next Cavalier King Charles Spaniels litters already.

If you want to be considered for a puppy, please look on my “puppy page” for all the information you need about my breeding plans, FAQs, and a questionnaire to fill out. Thanks, Sarah

Phoenix gets her Trick Title

My daughter Bri has a special bond with our dogs. When she wants to work with them (she is 13 after all) 🙂 , they hang on every command she gives them.

She and Phoenix, our little Ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, worked on Phoenix’s Novice Trick title and easily got it. Now I think she should go for her Intermediate Title – don’t you?

Kiss and Denny’s pups are 7 weeks today.

My sweet cavalier puppies are 7 weeks today. They are fun loving little explorers. On the sunny days we take them out into the garden to explore and play. The problem is, they don’t want to sit still anymore for close ups. So, you will just have to enjoy pictures of them enjoying the sun and exploring the garden with the big dogs and playing with mama Kiss (aka Paris).

Thank you for your interest in my puppies and breeding program. At this stage all of these puppies will be sold from my current wait list. I have just started assessing them to see who will stay in my breeding program. I thank you for your patience and understanding as I wait to make my final offers out to families. I do understand how hard it is to wait.

If you want to be considered for a future Kazuri puppy, please look on my “puppy page” for all the information you need about my breeding plans, FAQs, and a questionnaire to fill out. Thanks, Sarah

Paris’s puppies are 1 week today

It has been quite a week. we were absolutely gutted on Wednesday night when we lost our littlest guy 🙁 But thankfully the other six are strong and healthy and growing like little flowers.

We decided that their blog names should follow “Hamilton” – it is one of our favorite plays and since they were born on “President’s day” it seemed only fitting.

So, introducing: Our 3 girls <3

Angelica

Eliza

Peggy

And the boys <3

Hamilton (Hammy)

George

Aaron

I dont know if any of these puppies are available at this stage. Offers will be made as soon as I know – probably closer to 7-8 weeks. Thank you for understanding.

Kiss and Denny’s Puppies arrived

With every birth I learn something new. Usually I start taking the dam’s temperature about 4/5 days before she is due to watch for a significant drop which tells me she is 24hours from starting labor. This happened on Thursday morning (the 13th Feb). I got up every 2 hours through the night to check on her for 4 nights – she started labor on Sunday night around 11:30, and puppies started arriving around 10am on Monday morning. Someone once told me “they don’t read the rulebook” – and that was certainly true for this. But I am glad she was able to have them safe and sound at home rather than go in for the planned C-section which is what we would have done Monday afternoon.

Baby #1 was born at 9:58 – a boy – 5.1oz.

Baby #2 was a girl, born at 11:12 – 6.3oz.

Baby #3 was a boy born at 12:03 and he was 6.5oz.

Baby #4 was another boy born at 12:49 and 5.7oz.

Baby #5 was 6.6oz and was a girl born at 2:23.

Baby #6 was born at 3.52 – another girl 6.7oz.

Our final baby was a boy born at 4:14 weighing 7.6oz.

Mom and babies are all vigorous and doing well. I am not sure who is available at this stage and will start contacting families as soon as I do 🙂 Thank you.

EDIT: On Wednesday night, one of the little boys started to crash and we couldn’t save him and he gained his angel wings. This is the heartbreaking side of breeding. One that cant be avoided, but death is part of life. He was loved and treasured and cuddled right till the end. <3

Beagle puppies play in the sun

It was such a glorious day today, we decided to take the beagle puppies outside for some fun in the sunshine. They weren’t sure of the grass on their toes for about 10 seconds and then they loved it.

Phoenix is their favorite “big sister” and the feeling is mutual – any opportunity she can to play with them, she takes it. So, they all wrestled and enjoyed time in the sun today together. <3 We didnt want to risk the eagles today by giving them the run of the whole yard.

Penny and Flame’s Puppy’s Visit

Penny and Flame’s puppies came to visit me in the studio for some final pictures before they go to their new homes. A couple of them have already left, so really it’s just the puppies who are left. <3

They are just the sweetest bunch – we are so thrilled how they have turned out – pretty, healthy and with great temperaments.
