Welcome to KushNivas!

In these times of COVID-19 I am very pleased to say how proud I am of the following owners and their wonderful standard poodle partners. It is almost a year since the following “Teams” earned their awards, however, The Canadian Kennel Club, as of this date, November 1st, 2020, has not yet released the results as Official. If these results are incorrect, I apologize in advance.

These kids, Keisha, Obi, and Pandora are first and foremost family dogs, not kennel dogs! They live and participate as a part of their family. Many hours....years, too many to be counted, of dedication and training have gone into the following awards.

Louise and Keisha

RGCH TDCH Kushnivas Hoodwinked the Devil CD RMX5 RAE5 CGN (AKC)RI (AKC)TKA, aka Keisha,

Keisha was the #1 ALL BREED RALLY DOG IN CANDA FOR 2019.  Louise and Keisha have been partners for 7 years.  Keisha loves Rally Obedience, it allows her to demonstrate her intelligence while “playing” in the ring.

Susan and Obi

Susan Warner, owner and partner of MOTCH Kushnivas Oberon, aka Obi.
Obi was the 2019 and 2018 Top Obedience Standard Poodle in Canada ( 3rd in 2016 and 2017).  He was also 5th in the Non-Sporting Group.  He held 7th place in the group during 2016, 2017, and 2018.  Susan and Obi have been partners for 7 years, with Top Dog placements every year since 2016.

Andres and Pandora

Andres Mand, owner and trainer of MOTCH KushNivas Fashionably Late CGN RE aka Pandora loves to work.  For her, it is play.  Always trying something new, and striving to be the best she can be.  At 10 yrs of age, she is retired from Obedience and busy carting and participating in parades.
