Christina Oxtoby
Caleb
Always Loved and Missed
 
Caleb - Ichthus CalebAntony ("ik-thus, Kay-leb, an-tow-nee") - sadly died in 2006, age 5


  • The 'Legacy' in the name of our dogs is Asaph and Caleb's legacy (and all of our dogs since them) for teaching Christina so much that she can then pass on, thank you to my wonderful 'big baby' boy for being you (and such tremendous fun to work with.) Your smile and love of training, and the fun we had together will always make me smile to think of you - such a very special boy x
  • Taught Christina how to motivate dogs, how to have fun training, not to accept when people say something can't be done by a 'non-collie' and that every dog has something amazing they can do... you just need to let them show you what that is. Also, to enjoy every second whilst you can.
  • He was the most amazing stooge dog with aggressive dogs and taught Christina to read dogs and how best to defuse reactive dogs, including learning to trust him to know what to do. 
  • Blue Merle Great Dane
  • Novice HTM Heelwork
  • Novice HTM Freestyle (Christina's first HTM FS dog)
