Recognition

DRA = Dog Registry of America, Inc.

Tara the Northern Inuit Dog at 10 months old—"Tara is extremely friendly, clever and playful. She loves long walks, especially to the beach, where she loves to swim. She easily learned to sit and knows other commands. Still working on the command "speak". It seams she cannot understand anything that has no logic. She hates the leash and I must admit we rarely put her on a leash. She gradually learned to heel, but still is weak when spotting a cat. She loves to chase neighborhood cats, otherwise she is very friendly with our cat "Mimi". Tara has brought much joy to our family!"
