Pictures of the first outdoor sessions this year.

In April we went from training in the hall to training outdoor on the field. For most dogs this was a new experience as up till April this year all the classes were held at the village hall in Wigtoft. But as we acquired the field we finally could offer outdoor obedience classes which has made a tremendous improvement in a lot of dog's training. Here are some pictures of the first sessions on the field. Dave was so kind to make some pictures of one of these first outdoor sessions in April for us, so we can share it with you.

Competitive obedience class (we have several levels in this class, but all handlers in this class train for competitions)

Stays- Doozer and Missy

Stays - handlers standing behind the dogs, you can see the dogs are not used to this yet and have turned round a little bit to see what their owners are doing.

Heelwork - Megan with Violet

Heelwork- Gillian with Honey

First step in training the recall with stand - Liz with Doozer

And also some pictures of one of the first lessons of the young dog obedience:
In the young dog obedience classes we do some socialisation as well as the regular obedience exercises. This lesson we taught the dogs that walking through a tunnel was great fun! Kelly with Neala in the tunnel.

Fast recalls, Bear is running to his mum Liz.
Neala is one of the fastest dogs in the class (recalls)

Cheryl and Sorrel doing some attention exercises

Bear is already a large dog but believe it or not, he is only 4.5 months old in this picture. Liz and Bear doing heelwork.

With special thanks to Dave Bruns for taking the pictures.

Working hard

on my new routine with Wizz. 

Two weeks ago I decided in a spur of the moment that I was going to change my music for my next HtM competitions. New music, also means new routine. After playing with it a bit myself & training some new moves on it I phoned Hayley for some advice on moves. Together we worked out the new choreography. I am so excited about this. Hayley and I work really well together and it was so much fun. Must admit I was completely knackered yesterday after 2.5 hours of running around and so was Wizz. Today Wizz and I trained a bit (well one and a half hour) on the transitions and the moves and it is really SO MUCH FUN!!!!

our contact zones.

After we had been let down by a local supplier of equipment (unsafe, and not ready in the time that was promised) we have ordered our A frame, dog walk threstles and see saw from Jaycee jumps. Adrian covered it with the rubber granules, and it is all looking really nice now. And above all it is safe and to KC standards.
