Tango is extremely smart . . .
seriously smart . . .
like, off the chart smart.
And seriously motivated to get what he wants. This makes training easy and fun.

Tango is a very confident dog, with a "pick me" attitude. He loves attention and loves to please. He has a stable and very adaptable temperament.
To the Breeders whose dedication to the breed refined the lines and created a fabulous Aussie in every way; Handlers who polished him and made him shine, Judges who recognized and awarded Tango; and to the cheerleaders, friends, and our families, who sacrificed so many things to make this journey possible. A collective high five to all!
