Moving into our last day of Critical Elements camp, I am a little sad to see it all end. It is so much fun being a student and we have such a great group of students — we are all accomplishing a ton. Of the four goals I laid out for Swagger and I before […]

Posted on 06/16/11 27 Comments

Very exciting day. Tomorrow 4 1/2 month old Swagger and his cousin Raven start their first ever “Advances in Dog Training” and “Critical Elements course (formerly known as puppy camp).

Feature at the World Agility Open Championships

Posted on 05/24/11 32 Comments

Today I will go over some of my  rounds at the WAO. Sadly for Encore all of my clean runs were with Feature — that is no reflection on Encore whatsoever! The first run for Feature was Individual agility — the first run in the pentathlon. I was conservative and got caught behind going to […]

Posted on 05/23/11 14 Comments

Well a week has past since our return from WAO  in Britain but we jumped right into 6 days with Susan Salo (pardon my little pun). More on SS later. First I thought I would comment on WAO. I thought it was a well run event with absolutely fab courses from the judges. Challenging yet […]
