XO Dogs is committed to producing the ‘total dog’.  Our Pharaoh Hounds excel in the breed conformation ring, lure coursing, obedience, therapy work, health, and temperament.

     Our male, Ch Sovrin Superman SC was #3 Pharaoh Hound in 2000, #1 male in 2001 and 2002, #5 in 2003 with a BIS, multiple group wins and placements.  His up and coming young son, XO Spectacular Spectacular was also a Top Twenty Pharaoh Hound for 2003.   

     XO Dogs owned both Winners and Reserve Winners Bitch from the Pharaoh Hound Club of America National Specialty in 2002 in a class entry of 26 bitches.  We also exhibited the Reserve Winners Dog.

     Our girl, Ch Katobi’s Kryptonite did quite well in 2001 by going BOS Specialty Sweepstakes at only 6 months old, then completed her Champion a few months later at 10 months old at the prestigious Central NJ Hound Show by going Winners, Best of Winners, and BOS for 3 consecutive majors defeating the prior two National Specialty winners and also going Best In Show Sweepstakes.

     Most of our Pharaohs are excellent lure coursers and are titled in AKC Lure Coursing with either the JC (Junior Courser) or SC (Senior Courser) title.

     XO Dogs has also competed with Pharaohs in obedience in AKC, UKC and Canada, achieving a CD (Companion Dog) and CDX (Companion Dog excellent). 

     Several of our dogs are also registered therapy dogs and visit nursing homes as part of demonstration and visiting team. 

     Health is also a prime concern and all of our breeding and non-breeding dogs receive tests and certifications for hips, elbows, patellas, eyes, thyroid, and heart.
