Our Luck Has Run Out??!
A snowy day here, and as usual, the dogs are loving it, but I so want some more "nice" tracking time before winter sets in for good. Tank and Trust are trying to convince me to go down the path to the forest.
And then "Watch Out!" Here comes Blast! He just retrieved a ball, that is way back inside his mouth...like I don't know it...
Blast spied the teeter and jumped on, now is bracing to stop sliding down it, once it tipped.Jess is wishing there was more snow to roll in. This amount is hardly worth it! She will be 16 in two weeks!
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.
