In January 2012, we drove to the Baltic Coast in Poland for our lovely Siska to be mated to Sweedy. It was a very long journey but well worth the effort.
Aslan is very laid back and calm, fazed by nothing and so chilled and happy, very typical of both Siska and Sweedy. He has an amazing character, huge personality and a great sense of humour, he loves nothing better than to play about and act the clown, (even in the ring) The only Leonberger we have seen who can excel in dressage, but just for fun... He is too relaxed to show any dominance and is happy to let the girls take charge. Young Neo is his favourite of all our dogs, taking Aslan to Slovakia to bring home his new charge meant that they bonded very early on during that very long trek across Europe. Neo can take a bone from his mouth, he is such a lovely boy and we are very proud of him.
He is very friendly with both people and other dogs, we cannot fault his temperament at all. He also has great height, good mask and substance but not the best mover, he will always be beaten in the ring by the shorter dogs who have better movement, very much like Neo.
He is one gorgeous big fluff ball and we love him to bits
He qualified for Crufts 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016. It was a pleasure to see him stroll around the big ring having fun with his Dad. It was brought to our attention at LKA show 2017, that Aslan had a mouth fault, which had been caused through a bad infection following a squabble, so after this, we decided to end his show career.
In 2014, Aslan sired his first litter of 13 puppies. Sadly two didn't make it.
2019 he was used again and had four puppies.
In 2020 and 81/2 years old, Aslan is doing incredibly well, In great health and not at all like an older dog, he still has energy and great enthusiasm for everything. We plan to mate him to Meghan in February 2020 just before he will be nine years old, then he will retire from breeding. He has only sired two litters to date.
December 2017 LKA His last show.
