Dia is Jospehine Athanassiadou’s goddog from Nov. 2021 to Oct. 2022

When we found Dia, she was diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia – genetic and exacerbated by poor nutrition. In December 2020 she was estimated to be 9 months old.

Thereupon we gave her extremely good special food and additionally a specially developed nutritional supplement to augment her condition.
This change in diet helped extremely quickly and had an incredible effect; Today, you can no longer notice any impairment in her movement, jumping and playing. However, she should never go for long walks too often or run long distances next to the bike.
Dia’s hips will be x-rayed again when she is definitely full grown.

Dia is a beautiful bitch with herding character, who loves her pack, her dog family very much, but nevertheless also very obviously loves to be in close contact with her human. So she has a little tendency to be jealous and is always looking for the opportunity to cuddle intensively with a reference person peacefully and quietly. She enjoys these moments extremely!
She has learned well to walk on the leash and is very playful with other dogs, also considerate in play. But she is never submissive.
Her food envy is obvious – but through clear education this is now already – even with many different caregivers – no problem: She waits until it is her turn, and always sticks to this ritual without question.

Dia is very eager to learn, she likes to understand everything and also to cooperate. You can correct her well, she does not insist stubbornly on her will.
Of course, she also wants to guard, and in this regard you should clearly not leave the decisions to her her, set her limits; you make life easier for her by always assigning her a clear, granted position in the hierarchy.
If you then positively reinforce her in what you would like her to do, she is an incredibly great, smart partner!

In the beginning. raising her will involve good observation and close cooperation every day. At her young age, of course, this also means a fresh, lively, mental competition of strength with her every day. As a reward, she will soon become a companion of reliability and solidarity, a companion who can be trusted without reservation.
