Bazinga! is a handsome gold/white (tested as non-merle both via Optimal Selection and GensolDX) singleton out of our co-owned Pixel (AKC CH RACH O'my! Hidden Identity RM3 RAE2 FDC NA NAJ XF FCAT SWE SCM SEM SBM DM DSX DDP CGCA CGCU TKP NW2 C-SWP NW2, from Dare/Spryte) and our talented Player (MACH2 PACH Yosemite's Hate The Game RN MXS MJB MXP2 MJP2 BCAT DMA DSX AMX ASA PT, 2 time World Champion in Skyhoundz ).

Zing! is our long awaited Player son. We have not used Player in our own program since 2016 and we are so excited that this highly anticipated breeding gave us exactly what we were wanting in one of Player's very last litters -- a gold boy, marked just like his father, with personality in spades, and genetically not a merle. Zing! checked all the boxes and we are very excited for him to stay and for his future.
Zing! is very much like his father. He is outgoing, charismatic, focused and driven while keeping his sire's signature playful "Gotcha!" attitude. He has incredible work ethic already at a young age and is very serious. He loves to learn and he is "freaky good" like his father, shaping new behaviors in just 2-3 attempts and watching your eyes. His verbal understanding of objects and commands are on point. He switches between toy and food drive with no issues and is a natural tracker on the dock and in disc. At a few days shy of 14 weeks, Zing! earned his Trick Dog Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced titles! He is menally sharp as a tack when it comes to trick training.
While Zing! is loyal and definitely loves me fiercely (he is convinced we are BFFs), he is extremely friendly and people oriented and will also work and generalize for anyone. He has tremendous focus in whatever he is doing. In his foundations so far it has been like working with his father just a decade later - his brain is amazing. In agility, he is showing nice jumping ability, naturally loves distance, and finds his lines easily. He is a wonderful teammate. On the dock he has effortless pop and tracking and at a year of age was hitting some nice Master jumps from half dock. He qualified for the 2023 NADD Regional Championships in Masters and recently started learning Air Retrieve . In disc, he has big air hops like his daddy was known for in his day and at his second ever event he wins Spot Landing and earns his first invite to compete at the 2023 Skyhoundz World Championship. At his first Worlds, he placed 5th in Spot Landing with a very competitive round. He has a level head when in drive while giving 200% in whatever activity you're asking him to do, though he is a lot more dog (pushy!) than his father. In his agility debut early 2023, he flew through the novice and open classes with ease and in limited trialing is in Masters starting his MACH journey less than a year after his debut.
We are really excited that Zing! is related to almost every dog in our home/program on both sides of his pedigree. You can read more about his breeding and relations to the other dogs in our home/program by clicking here. We are just smitten with him and excited for his future in dog sports, he is so very special. Stay tuned to watch Zing!'s future.
