Otso is our second ridgeback. We hoped for a show quality male with a character that will suit a family with little children. And what a dog we got! This is a dog with a super character! He is self-confident and very stabile. He also has strong guarding instintcs. As a family dog he is a piece of gold. He is remarkable with children and with his easygoing nature he is easy to take along anywhere.
Otso has opened the door to dogshows for us. He has been a very successful showdog and became an International Champion in 2014. He has excellent proportions, strong bone and masculine presence, beautiful head and powerful movements. "Strong but elegant" as one judge described.
As a sports dog Otso is a keen lure courser and holds one lure courcing CAC and several podium placements so far. He also has some will to please so we have trained some obedience and hopefully will compete in this sport someday aswell.
