Leodania's Hope For New Morocco
Bromley was imported from Denmark in 2017. He is a character! Have you heard of a "turbo-berger"? Well, Bromley is the quintessential turbo-berger, and he has kept me on my toes since the day I picked him up at Newark Airport. Bromley had tremendous success in the show ring at an early age. He was Best Youth Male at the 2018 Leonberger National Specialty club show in Illinois when he was just 7 months of age! I retired him from the show ring not much later when it became obvious that he was stressed in that environment.
Due to his fear-based temperament I do not use Bromley in my breeding program. A stable, outgoing Leonberger temperament is one of the cornerstones of my breeding program, and I will only use dogs who demonstrate that type of temperament in all situations. Bromley and I do a lot of training together, and, while I have hopes that one day he will earn a working title, I don't put undue pressure on him to perform. He is happy and healthy and extremely loving with his trusted circle of people! Bromley has been a very good lesson in learning that not every dog will meet your initial expectations, but if you allow them to blossom in their own way they will teach you things you never knew you needed to learn.
