Here at (614), we have done many amazing things in our decade-ish-long history but this month, we outdid ourselves—we discovered the Top Dog in Columbus.
Meet Titan, the undisputed winner who beat out several hundred other dogs in our ferocious Cutest Canine in Columbus Contest for the July pet edition of (614) Magazine.
Titan is a blue and rust European Doberman with a prize winning nose, and a serious job.
When he’s not running around at the dog park, and wrestling with his labrador sister, he’s training to compete in Schutzhund, a sport that encompasses everything from obedience and tracking, to personal protection.
(614) caught up with Titan between training lessons to get a peek into his background, er.. barkground.
What dogs do you look up to?
I look up to all the police dogs out there. They do such a good job keeping all of us safe and protected. I also look up to Scooby Doo, figuratively, and quite literally. Have you seen how tall he is?
If you could share a bowl with any dog dead or alive, who would it be?
Lassie. Total babe.
Tell me a little about your owner, Nathan.
What does he do? Nathan is the Chef for The Final Cut Steakhouse inside the Hollywood Casino.
Have you ever thought about getting an Instagram account?
I always thought I needed one, but my Dad’s Instagram account has basically become dedicated to Reagan and me. Please follow us @nathanavenue
What are your favorite hangout spots in Columbus and beyond?
I love going to BrewDog, Seventh Son, and Kindred Brewing. They always welcome me with open arms, and I got a ton of pets and attention.
