Emily is our first Belgian Malinois.  Em is the daughter of Cody (Ch. Lauchlan Wily Cyote, CDX, TD, BH, TT, CGC, HIC, OFA and Certified Civilian Security Dog), a dog we fell in love with at Jackson’s obedience class.



Emily is a very sweet girl. She has fit in beautifully. She is playful and respectful. She can turn it on and turn it off.


She loves her ball. Ok...love is putting it mildly. It’s her absolute favorite thing...after tug (which is the ULTIMATE  favorite). She loves running in the woods. She also has a sweet spot for mud puddles. And once she learned to swim...there was no keeping her out of the water.




She started tracking as a young pup, and is active in agility and loves flyball. She is intense about her heeling and is looking forward to someday being in the obedience ring (if her mama ever gets around to it).


When she was 6 months old, the German Shepherd Club of BC was holding a Herding Instinct Test. We thought it would be a neat chance for her to see sheep and have some fun. It was just like lure coursing with the whippets...the instinct just kicked in. It was amazing to watch. She was reintroduced to sheep and earned her CKC HC!

She has also tried lure coursing...and agrees with the boys...LURE COURSING ROCKS!!!


Em is a wonderful dog. She has blossomed into a confident, funny, amazing dog. She is an exhilarating competition partner and most importantly, a great companion and member of the family.  We have learned so much from her. She continues to teach us ever so patiently.

Em loves long, slow, early morning walks in the woods, specially in early fall when all her favorite mud puddles are still well watered. She also loves a big splash...specially on a really hot summer day! She's is very selective of her friends. If she considers you her friend...get ready to be flattened with hugs and kisses. She also loves bedtime snuggles and sleeping under the covers at night...
