Please say hello to the baby boy of our pack, the handsome Noah!
He is bred by Marit Ånes of Suna-Sanik Kennel in Norway and is cousin to our youngest Greenland, Alice.
His Mum, Suki, is the one of the strongest lead dogs and head of the pack, demonstrating the uniquely stubborn but dedicated character that makes this breed so special. Her success is seen in both her racing and showing accolades and she remains a leader for Suna-Sanik in many ways.
His father, Balder, is a sweet character with a strong working ethic, having finished both the Polardistans (160 km) and Beaver Trap Trail (100 km) races, with 4x1st places from other races. He has had a great show career in Sweden too, with multiple CACs / BOBs and even a Best in Show accolade to his name!
Noah has a wonderful mix of cheeky and sweet - a definite Mummy's boy, he loves cuddles but is still very much a 'bull in a china shop' and quite enjoys seeing what he can get away with from the other dogs. He particularly dotes on "big brother" Harry and enjoys chasing him for kisses & playtime, often getting a telling off in the process as he barges and jumps on him for attention.
His show career has started well, with a trip over to Ireland in Mid-March for his first Baby Puppy classes where he gained not only back to back 1st / Very Promising gradings, but took Best Baby Puppy in Breed on both days!
In the UK his success has been just as strong, with numerous Best Puppy and even Best of breed accolades at Open Shows, alongside a cluster of Reserve Best Dogs and Best Puppy wins at Championship show. He even made breed history by being the first Greenland Dog to win a Puppy Group placing in the UK!
His 2019 continued well throughout his puppyhood, starting his Junior Champ & Championship titles in Belgium, Ireland & the Netherlands, as well as racking up the class wins at both Open & Championship Shows in the UK.
2020 has proven a strange year, with the coronavirus pandemic cutting short many show plans, but nonetheless already yielded some amazing results for Noah, not least his winning Best Dog & Best of Breed at Crufts in March - his first such accolade at a Champ Show in the UK, and what a way to do it!
He has started working with great enthusiasm. Weightpull he is still learning the ropes and is yet to compete (not understanding why he should do something if not at 100 MPH), but he loves to run in harness and had his first competitive experience running at SHCGB Sherwood in January 2020, where friend Sarah took him out with her CED girl Peech and my Harry for an inaugural CED-Malamute-Greenland team - and they won their class!
At 2 years of age, he started backpack training and so far is very much enjoying it - although doesn't seem to understand it doesn't require him to pull the whole way round ;-)
And finally, to prove there are some brains alongside the brawn, he is one of only 5 Greenland Dogs in the UK to gain a KC GCDS Puppy Foundation obedience award - clever boy :)
We are very excited to see what Noah can bring to our kennel and to the UK and look forward to the future.
