Maizey, 2013 #1 Australian Cattle Dog!

My girl Maizey started out as a feisty, independent puppy who would bite me purposely so that I would leave her alone. It has been quite a journey but I have to say that with relationship-based training and positive reinforcement, taking time to really develop skills and not rush her training process, and making play […]

Kylie, 2013 #3 Australian Cattle Dog

This time last year, I was conditioning Kylie to return to agility after surgery to repair her torn cruciate ligament in her right knee. Kylie was so sad to sit on the sidelines and watch me work with Maizey, but we had to take our time and make sure her healing was complete. This involved […]

The icing on the cake!!

Stevie earned her MACH, the weekend of October 18-20th, at the Samoyed Club AKC trial in Simi Valley. Along the way she also qualified for 2014 AKC Nationals in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

MACH 2 Kylie Blue!

Stir Gets the Bronze!

Stir got his LAA Bronze and ADCH Bronze at Happy Dog.

Stevie Earns Bronze ADCH & LAA!

Stevie finished her ADCH Bronze and Lifetime Achievement Bronze May 26, 2013 at Happy Dog. I am beyond thankful for the gift of running this very fun, fluffy Corgi. She loves agility and always runs her heart out.

ADCH Leo Goes MACH!

ADCH Leo finished his MACH at the AKC trial in Ventura on March 30, 2013. Hard to believe that less than three years ago, Leo was serving his second term in the County Animal Shelter. Leo has quickly gone from two-time-shelter-inmate to two-time-agility champion with the help of Dorothy and GVDC.
