I (Christina Ulberg) started my passion with the breed during high school. I was fortunate enough to have parents that allowed the next member of the family at that time to be a Rottweiler by the name of “Bud” Budweiser Von Midknight Sun. He was honestly like the brother I never had. Bud & I excelled in obedience classes, taking a first place at our obedience graduation. During college I had to leave him with my parents, and to my surprise he was feed and treated better than I was when I lived at the house. Upon my graduation my mother said, sorry he is mine.
After “Bud” passed away from cancer, my mother and I decided we both needed a Rottweiler puppy to fill that void, thinking about showing and completely uneducated; we located a breeder in Washington and brought home two fluffy puppies.
I choose the chubby slow one, and have shown “Diago”, Don Diago Vom Neuenschloss in the states and Canada since 2004, along with the help and knowledge of professional handlers. I have also shown other dogs as back up for some professional handlers, and have shown other class dogs and bitches, as well as specials for owners at their request. During my time showing I have been fortunate enough to be at the handler end of the lead, receiving WD, WB, BOW, BOS, and BOB, and some who obtained champion status.
My husband (David Bert) starting showing a compellation of our children in the states and Canada around 2006, after he saw how much fun I was having, and to have enlisted the help and knowledge of professional handlers. He has also shown other dogs as back up for professional handlers. He has favorite moment was when he felt the glow of victory by being at the handler end of the lead and receiving BOB in Canada over multiple specials with Diago.
My husband and I have great respect for the professional handlers, breeders, and beloved owners that compete consistently in the show rings.
