Last Day of Skill Camp

Posted on 12/08/08 6 Comments Stephanie and Skye work directional foundation.

For the last five days we have had a keen group of campers in for Skills Camp.  This camp is much like puppy camp but in more detail.  We can not expect young puppies to work for 5 days like these olders ones, so puppy camp is only 3 days.  Even for the older dog, […]

Fair Weather Walker

Posted on 12/04/08 11 Comments Buzzy & the red girls enjoying their walk

  Ok I admit to being a bit of a fair weather walker. I am lucky, we have 28 acres here and I just have to step out the door to get to the “park.” But still, I have been known to skip a walk, much to my dogs displeasure. Even though I love to […]

Posted on 12/02/08 7 Comments Jane & Wicca in the circle of tug game.

Well that was a blast, we had an awesome group of people here for puppy camp. It makes our job as instructors that much easier when the people we are teaching are genuinely nice to be around, and boy did we have some fun puppies.  Wicca the Westie was a crack up and she certainly […]

Posted on 11/30/08 7 Comments

Day one of puppy camp was great fun, as always.  It is interesting to see the demographics of the puppies we get.  This weekend of the 24 puppies that are here, only 3 are Border Collies.  At another puppy camp this year, 19 of the 24 puppies were Border Collies.  We have as many American […]

Posted on 11/28/08 8 Comments

So I skipped a day of blogging, don’t want you to think I am predictable or anything. The truth is I spend a good portion of yesterday trying to capture, on video, this cool little routine I do with my dogs when I train.  The first time I did it, I downloaded it to my […]

My Parents Would Have Been Great Dog Trainers . . . If they had liked dogs.

Posted on 11/26/08 5 Comments

Neither one of my parents were big dog lovers. They were both kind people, just not dog lovers. I always found that weird. My brothers and sisters are pretty much split down the middle. Four of them have a tolerance but not a love, three of them have a family pet that they love, and […]

Toilet Stretching

Posted on 11/24/08 10 Comments DeCaff Toilet Stretching (not this is a

No, toilet stretching isn’t some new plumbing innovation aimed at increasing the versatility of your crapper. It actually is a way I teach my dogs to give me a “sincere, all out, full-body-stretch.” Stick with me here, it really works.
