Ivo was born in a litter in Slovakia in June 2014. In October I went to pick him up to the kennel "Aldeon", owned by Pavel Kuska. I went to Slovakia on the advice of an Italian hovawart breeder, who, thanks to his expertise, showed me this litter because of the quality of Ivo's parents and the bloodlines that were not yet presented in Italy.
Ivo was not a random choice; I was looking for a Hovawart male that would have typical characteristics of a breed. Ivo is exactly as I wanted him to be. Excellent guardian, calm, solid, sunny and affectionate, eager to learn and excellent workmate. Ivo has demonstrated and proved all his qualities both in show and in sports activities. The tracks are the thing that he most loves to do. Ivo is a very affectionate dog, attached to me and my family, he likes to play freely in wide open spaces, he is a patient dog, very sweet, but also lively when needed. For him the important thing is to be with you anywhere.
So my adventure began with my first hovawart and I fell in love with the breed. With Ivo we started show career in Italy and abroad, achieving excellent results and we also started training to pass the working test (CAL2), which is required to become a selected stud male in Italy, Italian champion and Club champion. We also passed the BH exam.
In Italy he won the hovawart Club show in Reggio Emilia in 2018 (28 dogs registered) and the Special show hovawart in Livorno also in 2018 as Best of breed in champion class. He is the winner of the open class at the European dog show in Brussels, Belgium, in 2016. In November 2016 he won the CACIB Zagreb (Croatia) show with the note excellent 1, CAC, CACIB and Best of Breed.
Another very important result was achived at the IDS Chieti 2018, in the Best in Show, where he and Maya, as a couple, won the second place. This breed is rarely selected among the winners in the ring of honor at the Italian dog shows. At the club shows, special shows and EDS Ivo is often handled by Daniele Tabarrini.
