Friday afternoon before snow arrives!!!
Blast got the walk after Tank and Trust, and raced around the "same" route we took. Here, I've called him back to me. What a lovely morning it was...
I just love it when he races full tilt back to me...ears flattened out and so intense. I usually stand to the side...just in case...He's found a stinky bone in the field that probably the fox has left his scent on...yummy...
The only time Blast isn't running...he loves to roll on stinky old marrow bones and has just finished doing so, looking at me as if to say "Aren't I just sooo special"....! Well..yes, and no...
We train/compete in various dog sports, but Tracking has been my main interest since 1994. Five of my dogs have earned TDX titles,Trust has now earned her UTDX which gives her the title of a Canadian Tracking Champion!!! And Now!! Blast has just earned his Tracking Champion title after passing his UTDX Oct.21/12 at just 3 years of age! Blast earned his UTD, TDX and UTDX all in 2012, quite a feat! Tank is working towards the elusive UTDX in 2013. One of the most special is still our little rescued sheltie earning a TD at nearly fifteen years old! I offer tracking classes each spring and am very proud of my students who have earned titles. I've also done tracking seminars on occasion, usually aimed at beginners. I am a CKC Tracking Rep. for Northern Ont. as well as a CKC Canine Good Neighbour Evaluator.
We have been visiting a local nursing home weekly, when possible, for over six years, but presently have taken a reprieve from this.
Time spent with the dogs walking/running on our property is probably our most enjoyable activity. I also offer private in-home training to assist pet owners and their dogs/puppies.
