Siberian Adventure's Xenon

Xenon

Male

Xenon is a male from our own breeding, extremely big!!!

He is an unique, sweet and energetic dog. Always 1 of the first to come and greet you when you enter the kennel. He is very playful and loves to cuddle. His father Wantok (who is with him in the kennel) is most of the times the one that has to suffer when Xenon wants to play again. If you give him attention, he'll just stand against you and let you pet him. Sometimes when he's enjoying the attention, you can see his eyes closing very slowly.

In October 2015 we started training the dogs for the 2015/2016 season, for Xenon this was his first year. We started with 4km like we always do and he was great! Pulling like a maniac, enthusiastic with the start, he loved it. After a couple of weeks, we went on to the 6km, in the beginning he was still fine, but after a few times he started to get really tired after 4km. Sometimes even so tired we had to take him with us on the quad back home. Nonetheless the rest of the dogs were ready for the next step: 12km. We decided to just take Xenon with us, if he couldn’t keep up, he would just take a ride back with us again. As soon as we saw that he became tired, we took him on the quad and after 10 minutes we put him back in the team again, that’s how we kept training him.

He finished the whole 12km a couple of times, mostly on the colder days or when there was some snow to eat for hydration.
Sledding time! Which meant we could continue for the 20km, in the beginning this went ‘okay’ for Xenon. But after a few times, it seemed to be getting worse. So we decided to leave him at home for 2 weeks. After those 2 weeks we had some more time so we started to train some of the “puppy’s” (1-year-old), of course we started with 4km, so we took Xenon with us. And he was good! On to 8km, also really good! On to 12 km, not so good…. So we took it down again and just kept training the 8km with him and the puppy’s. Sometimes he had his good days and sometimes his less days.

Xenon wants to go so badly, so he gives all he has even before we go, the moment he sees his harness he already goes crazy, the first 2km he works like crazy and then there’s nothing left…. Xenon has always been big, even as a puppy. But, he was still ‘only’ 1,5 year when we started to train him, normally at this age it’s no problem. Xenon is probably in his mind still too young for his big body, so he can’t keep up with himself. We do have full trust in him that he’s going to make it next year!

Also this year it became clear that xenon can not handle the working.
This was the reason for us to find a good home address for him. Stephanie wanted to offer him sooo badly this good life. After intensive indoor training, he is now in the Netherlands
