KOBE – THE BIG DOG ON CAMPUS
DataDog Kobe is currently 7 years old. He is a “labmaranaer,” which is a mix of a black lab and a weinmaraner. This is a very unique designer dog with inherent talent, lots of smarts and boundless energy.
Below is Kobe at 6 months old. He had just graduated Pet Smart’s training program. And now, he is truly the BDOC – Big Dog on Campus. Everyone knows who’s The Boss!
Kobe is a very busy office dog, with a broad range of responsibilities. They range from meeting & greeting, supervision at mealtimes, as well as accompanying Ed to the bank and on a wide array of travel & transport tasks. This includes mail pickup & delivery.
Training & promotion
His big sisters, Morgan & Kayla (may they both rest in peace) trained him in wide range of duties. Kobe definitely passed all proficiency exams in every department. He was promoted to Chief DataDog in March 2011.
As Chief Data Dog, Kobe has been entrusted with the training program for his siblings. This includes younger sister, Kaycee, part-timer, Nadi Erasmous and our most recent addition, DataDez.
