    Quick drop/off leash heel vid

    I got this vid a few weeks ago, but realized I hadn't posted it! Seeing as Red's been around, I thought I would so she, or anyone else thinking about using the touch stick method for drops can see how it works out! Our drop excercise is done with all hand signals, seeing as we had to...

    Chicken Backs today!

    After a week of feeding the pre-packaged raw and no issues, I decided to try adding in the chicken backs for their dinner tonight. Boy did they love it! Roxy got down and dirty! Savage like knawing and "killing" and ripping! ROFL. But she was wonderful, I separated them and stood in between just...

    Challenging Dominance?

    Lately I've noticed Roxy and Hades getting into some more "serious" fights lately. I've been very observant with their interactions together and am not quite convinced that he's challenging her "dominance" but am looking for some honest opinions. (They have not been left alone since their...

    Agility people : )

    Roxy's been doing spectactularly well with her fungility lessons lately, and I'm toying with the thought of stepping it up a notch seeing as we both enjoy it so much. For a confident dog, she's pretty sticky and was wondering if anyone had any tips for sending the dog away from you to...

    Sledders!

    I got my sled today! *dun dun dun* A real sled! There's a man just a few minutes away from me, who was *THE* man who brought sledding down in the area I live in. Good ole' Tom. Been doing it for over 30 years. He's a little rough around the edges if you know what I mean ;) Let's just...

    Sledding... Ren look here!

    Today my sister in law had her baby, so I didn't get to post about our sledding adventure that was on Sunday. I just got in from a long stay at the hospital, but hopefully tomorrow or later on tonight, (if I don't pass out ;) ) I'll post the pics. I already posted pics of the harness' I had...

    Sunday's Match Results!

    I'll try to keep it short, but Sunday was Hades' first "match", a correction match because that's all I can enter him in, but a match nonetheless. So the scores! :) Hades: Heel on leash and figure 8 24/40 Stand for Exam. 30/30 Heel Free...

    CKC's "ILP"-Good news and bad

    I've searched the CKC website and have discovered the CKC's equivalent to the AKC's ILP. PEN- Performance Event Number The good news is that there is an equivalent. The bad news is that it must be a CKC recognized breed. You need to send the form with two recent pictures of the dog...

    I'M Back! Scary story though...

    So, yes, I finally have stupid dial up internet hooked up here. It was a mad hassle, but it's hooked up and working. But I do have a scary story... a very scary story... It was a bit of a coincidence, because the last time I came here, one of the threads I read and responded to, was regarding...

    Hads vs. THE DUMBELL *dun dun dun*

    I'm not on as much anymore, but a few times I've posted about the issues with Hades and the introduction to the dumbell. We've been working hard, very hard... And because Hades, is... much "softer" than Roxy, it's been hard, very hard. One wrong look, one wrong word in a certain tone of...

    go! New Brand?

    The place where I get our food recently started carrying the brand "go!", apparently it's made in BC, Canada, supposed to be a really good food. I got them the one kind of wet food they have, chicken something or other, and they really seemed to like it. It had cubes of real chicken in...

    Red? Dumbell Advice!!!

    For the past few weeks I've been working with Hades at home, going through the motions to introduce him to the dumbell. Yes, I said weeks... Now I know that all dogs are different, but I'm starting to get frusterated with him. The very first day he moved throught he motions quite quickly. We...

    Merry X-mas everyone!

    I haven't been on in forever, excuses excuses I know :rolleyes: My parents evil dog chewed up the modem that I need to hook up the internet at my house! And now we can't find one that's around the same price, I found one for double the price and during this time of year I can't swing it...

    Mordy! SG vs. Eagle Pack?

    A few months ago we switched from Wellness to Eagle Pack. Both of my guys are doing wonderfully on it, the dry and the wet. When I was first deciding which brand to go for after Eagle Pack though, Solid Gold had been mentioned as one of the best brands. As of then, it was not available to me...

    Roxy's Match Results!

    I found out late last week about a correction match being held close by and decided that everything was slack enough for Roxy and I to attend. I thought it would be a good time to see how she'd handle the stresses of the "show" world without there being too much pressure on performance. The...

    Marathon of Dog School :) *Long*

    So, Tuesday was Hades group lesson, followed by Roxy's first class with her new group and I just got back from her last private. I know it seems like an awful lot to ask of Roxy, but today we pretty much just goofed off, brought out the agility equipment. I had signed up for three privates with...

    SFE- Today... *dun dun dun*

    So, first off, the e-collar was on Roxy today. But no stimulation. RD, my trainer actually suggested a method quite similar to yours. So that's how we did the SFE today. Not soo much stress on the "watch me" today, to make her more nervous, but she could glance over at my trainer. THERE...

    Another pit hater... TURNED! Yay!

    She may not have been a hater per se, but in Hades new group class there was a lady that complained because he wasn't muzzled. She was "uncomfortable" with him the class. Hades did bark and growl a few times, he feels he has to "police" everyone. If someone jumps on my trainer, he immediately...

    OC, Sledding? Training?

    With winter time acoming, and my little team I've got combining my two dogs with Brutus, I thought it would be neat to maybe try some pulling in the snow! Nothing too serious, perhaps not even me (I'm probably too darn fat, maybe my niece and nephew) I'm kind of unsure of the harness...

    Slap me... Used an e-collar :O

    Yes, you heard me. *shakes head in shame* I'm sorry Colleen :( I have an e-collar, have had for a few weeks, that has been charged and sitting on my table unused. I posted earlier about Roxy's first private for a few weeks now, and I just got back. As many of you know, IMO, I've...
