Jambo- The Staffy Bull Terrier has been a good friend of ours almost since day one! He and his person Louise have done so much amazing work together- they are true inspirations to us! They have even inspired one of us to pursue becoming a Certified Trick Dog Instructor!
Here’s some of what Louise has to say about Jambo:
“His name means “hello” in Swahili. He’s a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and just loves to say hello to everyone. He’s 18 months old and already has seven Trick Dog Titles, including Advanced and Expert Levels (can turn the lights on/off, fetch a drink from the fridge, skateboard, spin, twist, play dead, roll himself in a blanket, play soccer, basketball……) has taken a trophy for Best in Breed and a First Place in Obedience – all trained with Positive Reinforcement. He’s very mischevious, inquisitive, playful, friendly (dogs and people), loving, funny, good looking, licky – will spend forever just licking you…. I think he’s an amazing ambassador for the bully breeds!
Jambo is the first Staffordshire Bull Terrier DMWYD (Do More With Your Dog) Champion Trick Dog! (DMWYD is the officially sanctioned body for the sport of Dog Tricks). Here’s Louise and Jambo showing off some of their mad skillz!
As you can see, Jambo is extremely talented! His skills are a testament to the work and consistency that Louise has used throughout his training. Jambo earned his first title at the age of 8 months, and through Positive Reinforcement training and a strong commitment to advocating for Bully breeds, Louise and Jambo make quite a pair!
We are so very pleased to present Jambo as our Dog Of The Week! Great work, Louise and Jambo!
