2017 Recap

Another year has passed and although we have wound down most of our own show schedule, our owners continue to impress with their many accomplishments.  We also have a broader family of dogs than ever before, with co-breedings from the past now creating lines of their own.  We'll list the Esmond and co-owned accomplishements here, but are just as proud of the many who are carrying our lines forward through their own breeding programs.

There were three breedings in 2017 which kept us busy for most of the year:

Yngo/Rumor ~ The much anticipated Yngo/Rumor breeding produced a whopping ten puppies via frozen semen!  This litter make quite a few of us very happy and also brought one new owner to our Esmond family.  We'd like to welcome John and Cathy Randall of Oklahoma.  Thank you to Tammy Ausloos for making Rumor available for this breeding.

Tryst/Kellen ~ Next came the Tryst/Kellen litter, co-bred with Moe Mullen and Kathy Bach.  There were eight pups in this litter, who will also carry the Esmond prefix.  And we must admit that it was one of the best litters that we've ever had the pleasure of evaluating.  Congratulations to all new owners and welcome to Tim and Alicia Everton from Iowa, Sue and Rich Raux from New York and Joan Kossaras from Arizona.

Nox/SOLA! ~ And, right at the end of the year, Nox and Sola blessed us with our final litter of the year.  These three pups have kept us busy right up until the end of 2017, going home between Christmas and New Years Day.  These three puppies all stayed in the family and we are eager to see what they go on to accomplish.


As always, my favorite thing to do at year end is to put together our yearly list of accomplishments.  Congratulations to each and every dog and owner on this list.  We are so proud of every one of them!

             (We did not have pups at the National this year because Ann was judging)

It was also a great year for High in Trial wins, with pups winning High in Trial across all venues again in 2017.  Congratulations to Angie Janes and Sully with two times HIT in obedience, Elaine Swancer and both Wizard & Strider for HIT wins at CRC, Mona Boord & Khaleesi with four herding HITs, Dawn Phillips and Tryst in UKC obedience and Diane Pilcher and Nox with three UKC rally HIT wins!

In the United Kennel Club shows, both Nox and Ryker won the prestigious Total Dog Award!

At the last event of the year, the 2017 AKC National Championship, there were some terrific brags to share:

    Kay Willmarth and Bo were the top scoring Rottweiler team in Obedience!!!
    (Bo was also 3rd in the working group at the 2017 National Obedience Invitational earlier in the year)
    Elaine Swancer and Wizard made the Agility finals (Wizard and Bo are littermates)!!!
    Kong helped his Jr. Handler, Camryn, with a strong showing each day and Reserve Best Jr. one of the days!!!
    And co-bred boy, Blue, won an Award of Merit for owner, Patti Wicks, and handler, Ryan Dillman!!!

We also believe that there may also be a first for an Esmond Rottweiler this year - We are awaiting final results for Junior Showmanship rankings, but believe that Camryn Hayes and Kong may have finished the year as the #1 Jr. Handling team in the breed!   We also think they will finish in the Top Ten in the working group for Jr's!!!


When it comes to production awards, Esmond Rottweilers also had an outstanding year!

It started with Grant winning the 2016 ARC Prico Award for owners Rich and Judy Spetka and Rumor winning the corresponding ARC Taxi Award for owner Tammy Ausloos!  Thank you to the owners of the very talented GG litter for helping their parents win this title with only one litter of six pups at the time!!!

Quite a few of our dogs and pups also achieved ARC Production Awards in 2017.  Congratulations to the following dogs and owners:

    ARC Gold Dam:    Our very own Itchy!  Congratulations also to Itchy's breeder, Suzan Guynn!
                                   and Chatty, owned by Lisa Byrd!
    ARC Silver Dams:  Rumor, owned by Tammy Ausloos, Takoda, owned by Bill & Karen Carroll,
                                    and Clover, owned by Perri Yinger!!
