Kobe is currently 3 1/2 years old. He is a "labaraner," which is a mix of a black lab and a weinmaraner, a very unique designer dog with inherent talent and boundless energy.
To the right is Kobe at 6 months old - he had just graduated Pet Smart's training program.
He is a very busy office dog, responsible for a wide array of office responsibilities, ranging from meeting & greeting to mail pickup & delivery.
His big sisters, Morgan & Kayla (may they both rest in peace) trained him in wide range of duties in the shipping & receiving department where he was recently promoted to head of the department.
Kobe is now the BDOC - Big Dog on Campus - and he has been entrusted with the training program for younger sister, Kaycee and part-time trainee, Nadi Erasmous.
Kobe still gets very excited when anything is delivered to our office. We are hopeful that in the near future, Kobe will stop jumping on the Fed Ex man when he arrives with the daily treats for our canine staff.
Kobe is a handsome devil. The top shot below was taken at 14 months at Canine Cove Dog Park where Kobe sometimes runs off some of his energy at the end of the Dataman work day!
As you can see, he has matured since that time - the photo under that shows Kobe & his colleague Kaycee relaxing at the Dataman Group offices during their lunch break.
