Meet Reef!

Meet Reef!

Reef is from our Tex X Joey 2016 litter

Here is what Reef’s owner, Nichole has to say about Reef!

“To know Reef, is to love him. Reef exudes confidence and power in everything he does, and he also happens to have the most contagious happy personality you can find. From the moment Reef was born there was a spark in my heart and I knew he would be mine. As a puppy Reef was very mature, but never failed to light up any room he walked into with his huge personality. He has always been boasting with confidence from day one, he will fearlessly work with purpose on any task in any environment or situation. Growing up, Reef has been nothing short of phenomenal, he has excelled at every task thrown his way with total ease and confidence. At his first dock diving competition Reef (at 10 months old) popped out jumps over 16 feet with ease, and with little practice he began hitting jumps of 20+ feet! When he was 15 months old he earned an invite to North America Diving Dog Nationals in both the Open Masters Division and the Air Retrieve Senior Division. He ended up tying for 8th place in AR Senior with his dad Tex with a 17 foot snag!! He still is rocking the dock holding a best in distance of 23'6" and a best in AR of 21'! He competed in HydroDash for the first time in February of 2020 and became the first BC to qualify in HD for HD!! Reef has proven to be a force to reckon with in all venues he trains and competes in, which includes Dock Diving, Flyball, Disc, Rally/Obedience, and Herding. Reef debuted in flyball in the summer of 2018 easily posting sub 4 second times consistently with his best time being a 3.8!! On stock Reef is a looser eyed dog but with all the intensity, work ethic, and biddability of a strong sheep dog, I have hopes to compete in herding with him if we have the chance. While working Reef gives 100% and is always ready to go; but when in the house Reef has an off switch like no other. He is able to go from 100 to zero in no time, and loves relaxing around the house on our rest days. Another great quality is that he has never met a stranger! Reef loves every person he’s met, children being some of his favorites, he is so gentle with young kids, and loves to play fetch with them. In addition to loving people, Reef loves all other animals as well. He is friendly and sweet around dogs, cats, chickens, horses, and other livestock animals. He is very respectful of other animals space and reads situations very well. Reef has even picked up on some of his sire's qualities in alerting me to cuts/injuries on myself and has even brought injuries on other people or animals to my attention. Reef has a very sweet and nurturing aspect to him, and will do anything to make someone having a bad day laugh. He is the perfect package: confident and powerful yet still sweet and funny all wrapped up in one handsome dog. This boy is my absolute everything and I would love this dog no matter what we did in life, as long as he is by my side.”
