We couldn't be more excited to introduce our keeper from our first litter, Jess (although more formally called Jessica when being naughty)!

Daughter of our Dylan & Alice who with circa 100 Championship Show Best Dog / Bitch wins across 11 different countries between them - as well as multiple class wins at dryland races, backpacking title legs and breed records in UK weightpull - are both dogs who have made their mark on the breed here in the UK. Jess was the first born from a litter of six beautiful babies who you can read more about HERE:

She made her presence known from the outset, with plenty to say before she had even opened her eyes and a strong personality even amidst her 5 equally charismatic littermates.

Showing a lot of promise in structure and working aptitude, Jess quickly proved a fun dog to have at home - albeit a very loud one! She certainly has that signature sled dog stubborn streak and an independent nature, but is a fast learner, super affectionate girl who absolutely adores the older dogs - especially her Mum Alice and Malamute "Uncle" Harry, who puts up with her attention very well. When not bouncing around she thrives on sharing cuddles with the humans  in her life too and has taken after her parents penchant for spending a large amount of time on her back for tummy rubs.

Being our "lockdown" baby as born in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and heavy government restrictions, getting out and about was slow but we managed to squeeze in some online shows to compliment our training at home including a fantastic Best Puppy In Show award under respected judge Christina Chapman (Bukris).

When the opportunity to attend "real shows" arose, Jess certainly hit the ground running!
At 6 months of age, at her first Open Show, she made breed history by winning the Working Puppy Group (the first Greenland Dog to achieve this in the UK!!) as well winning BAVNSC and an adult Working Group 3 on the same day - what a good girl!

Since then she has been a force to be reckoned with on the UK Champ Show scene, and in the space of 4 months gained at 1 Best of Breed, 3 Best Bitch, 6 Reserve Best Bitch, 8 Best Puppy, 4 Puppy Group Shortlists and Working Puppy Group 4 at Blackpool Championship Show under judge Tim Ball, a very special accolade as only the 2nd Greenland Dog to place in a UK Champ Show Puppy Group (the first being our own Noah) but also the first female & first UK bred to do so. 

Her success at Open Shows in those first few month also gave us reason to celebrate, with her efforts during her puppy career totalling 2 Best AVNSCs, 2 RBAVNSC, 1 WG3, 5 BP, and 3 puppy group placings - including that breed history making win!

We also managed to squeeze in some shows abroad in France & Switzerland between lockdowns where she surpassed all expectations, coming away with not just 6 Best Junior awards but also 4 Best of Breeds, 2 Best Opposite Sex and a Group V shortlist in Douai (France) under judge Michael Griol at 11 months of age - what a star! Her successes also allowed her to close her Swiss Junior Champion title.

2022 got off to a great start for Jess, seeing her take Best AVNSC at the first two Championship Shows of the year and then gaining Best Bitch & Best Opposite Sex at Crufts from the Junior class, even in her underwear!
She continued the trend, racking up a number of Best Bitch awards throughout the year, which culminated in Best of Breed at Darlington Championship Show, always a calendar highlight as our last UK Champ Show of the year with breed classes.

Not content with her UK Open Show breed history as a puppy, Jess continued to exceed expectations in 2022, picking up numerous Best of Breeds / Best AVNSCs and a number of group placings, culminating in two group wins and a Reserve Best In Show at the start of October, making her the first female Greenland Dog to win a UK Open Show group, the first Greenland dog to win more than won UK Open Show group and the first Greenland Dog to place in a BIS competition at a group-system UK Open Show - what a star!!

As if that wasn't enough, she also enjoyed a couple more adventures to Europe, first in April to compete at the prestigious European Dog Show Paris, where she gained Best of Breed (alongside Best Junior and her European Junior Winner title). 

 

A couple of months later - out of Junior - she took a road trip to Spain with Noah for the World Dog Show Madrid, winning 3x Best Bitch, the World Winner title and closing her Spanish Champion title!

Our 2023 Show season went off with a bang, seeing Jess take Best Bitch at Manchester Championship Show in January followed up with Best Bitch & Best of Breed at Crufts in March - an achievement I am particularly proud of as it makes her only the second Greenland female to gain such an award at Crufts (the first being her paternal grandmother)!

She hasn't slowed down, travelling to Geneva for the World Dog Show and coming away with the World Winner 2023 / Best of Breed, to Denmark for the European Dog Show and winning Best Opposite Sex & European Winner 2023 against strong, more mature competition as well as being a force to be reckoned with on the UK Open Show scene, completing her ShCEx title - the first Greenland Dog to do so - in June.

From a working perspective we took things steadily with Jess, as between Covid restrictions and some other, personal challenges our competitive opportunities were limited in her first eligible year but she showed great promise in training and certainly didn't disappoint at her first race in March 2023, where alongside her Mum Alice and friend Kim's Greenland male Wolvey they won their three dog class against strong, mixed Sibe-Freight team competition at AMWA Haughley Park's WSA associated race.

She had her first try at weightpull in the novice class in November 2022 and while taking some time to build up her confidence she showed good natural form and pulled 900lb in her first competition in April 2023. She unfortunately took a bit of a scare later in the season and so for 2023/24 is back in novice while we rebuild her confidence, but we hope we can make this fun for her again!

And to prove she isn't all brawn and no brains, she also achieved her KC GCDS Puppy Foundation Obedience award at 6 months of age - what a good girl!

It's still early days but we are still very excited for what the future will bring for our firstborn puppy and will be looking forward to sharing more updates as she matures.
