Snow and cold...
I'm glad we don't have the amount of snow that some poor folk in southern parts of Ontario received recently, but we've got more "cold" today. Our walks were pretty brisk!!! First sunny day in a while.
I just hope we don't lose all our trails again this year. We were running out of nice places to walk last winter. Oh, this is about as far as Blast goes and then turns around to make sure I'm coming....
Blast the predator in this photo. He's certainly begun to fill out a little and looks quite a bit more mature...19 mons. now. He was the only one this morning not to get "cold feet" in the snow.
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.
