Hope everyone has had a wonderful start to their New Year.
Classes will be starting up next week for both Kiah and Keegan. Kiah and I did do some special classes during the break, they were a lot of fun. We did a Standard, FAST and Tunnelers course but missed the Jumpers course.
Took Kiah on a couple of long walks with my sister, BIL and their two Springers. I let Kiah off leash, she did really well; I was proud of her and how far she has come in her training. We ran into another couple with a boxer and the two boxer girls had a blast running together. I also got brave and let Keegs off leash on one of our walks, he was really good and minded very well too. The dog walk is in a wooded area with cement paths for walking your dog but also people walking by themselves or bicycles. You can also take a wooded path for your walks too but we stay on the cement path. We have had beautiful weather for this time of year so it has been really enjoyable. I have not been not brave enough to take both dogs at the same time as they do tend to be a bit crazy together. Maybe later this spring I will see how they do.
I have high expectations for Kiah this year and Keegs will be entered in his first trial in March. It will a be 3-day trial at our club so he should feel pretty comfortable. We will see how well he does at the trial before I enter him in other trials.
More later as classes start back up.
Classes have started back up. Just a few notes as to things we need to work harder on.
Kiah: Haven't been working her in obedience as much and I can begin to see her slipping so that will be a priority for us in February. March will be a busy month if I can get in all of the trials I have entered.
Keegan: He is entered in our club's trial (FCDTC) all 3 days in March, his first trial ever. I really need him to learn distance and entry on weaves. He has a much harder time learning names and associating with an obstacle but he is getting there. He will be my velcro dog.
