 Baby-Primo at the age of 5 weeks in October 2009.



Primo is a very open and kind young male. He loves all people and gets along with most dogs. He is very energetic and is always ready to do something. Primo is great companion and working dog. He is easily motivated, because he loves food, squeezing toys and attention. He does have quite a strong hunting instinct when it comes to chasing birds, squirrels and rabbits, etc. Luckily he is keen to his family (and treats!) and therefore can be walked without a leash in a forest, for example.

Primo has been to an official mental description (MH) on spring 2014.



We have attended an obedience training course for puppies when Primo was about 6 months old. After that we have continued obedience training as more of an everyday obedience and since November 2010 also some more test aiming obedience. We are still beginners, but we are gradually learning.


We started practicing proper ring manners for dog shows on January 2010 when Primo was about 5 months old. We are still sometimes attending training lessons for ring manners just to keep everything in mind (and we are still learning to become better). Primo attended his first dog show at the age of 7 months on 17th April 2010 in a puppy class.


During autumn 2010 we tried blood tracking for the first time. Primo seemed to enjoy it, and we have done some tracking exercises since. We just need to continue training and maybe we will participate in a tracking test some day.

We took our first agility course for beginners when Primo was 8-10 months old. January 2011 we attended to another course for beginners and during spring-autumn 2011 we participated in a course for advanced beginners. On September 2011 we applied for a place in a weekly training group at Agility Team Turku (ATT) and have been training in a beginners' group since.
