Karson Premier

Karson is a big, handsome boy with big, easy movement. He boasts a sweet personality, masculinity, and a front that is hard to find these days in the breed.

He finished both his AKC Championship and Grand Championship in less than 3 weekends out with Emily Burdon in a single circuit south. He made a splash at the big Louisville Kentucky AKC show, taking big majors 3 of the 4 shows for 13 points in 3 days. A few days later at the Raleigh NC show, he took Winners Dog for a 4 point major to finish his AKC Championship, then garnered 20 points toward his Grand Championship the rest of the circuit, including a Group 4 in a tough Herding group. The first day of the Syracuse NY shows the following weekend, he finished his AKC Grand Championship with Best of Breed for 5 points and a Group 2. 

Karson is owned by Sarah Kalkes, co-owned by Valerie Yates, and resides in Minnesota. For his Genetics Panel, click here. For stud inquiries, please contact Sarah at or Valerie at
