Default Dock Dogs and Herding

Hello all, we wanted to share some pictures with everybody of our recent activities with our German Shepherd.

The first three pics are of Ezra competing in Dock Dogs. He got 13th place out of 50 dogs. Not bad considering the sport is dominated by retrievers. The fourth pic is of Ezra competing in sheep herding. He just earned his first herding title last week, which was his JHD.






Hope you like the pics.

Mike & Patty

Oh the dock dogs is just awesome! We actually got to show up early and practice as many jumps as we wanted. It was a 3 day event. This was the first time we did it. All kinds of people with different breeds showed up, either just to try it, or to compete. It was so much fun. This is the first time they had something like this in So CA. According to the event staff it's getting big in Northern CA, that's where they're located. Your pup would have a blast. I'm not sure where your from but here is the website in case your interested. http://splashdogs.com/

Great photos and a beautiful dog!

Now, I have some very funny pictures in my head of Shiva competing in a dock jumping competition. I KNOW she could outjump everything if food was the lure! But I'm seeing the HUGE splash when she hit the water . . .

Kharma herds like a maniac; we just can't get her to stop until she has all the cows in one place, whether we want them gathered up or not. Even the bulls. Poor cows. I've really got to find someone experienced with training herd dogs around here. If you've got any advice I'm all ears!
