Last night was for the in betweeners & newbies.
It is exciting to see these dogs come along so quickly!!! We worked with restrained recalls over the jumps as well as back chaining to the box from 1 jump, then 2, then 3, then all 4.
At the end of the night we finished with a game of scent by everyone throwing their dumbbells into the middle & 2 dogs at a time being sent out to find their own dumbbell, the dogs really enjoyed this as did the handlers :)
2 weeks to the first meet in Calgary !

This was also the last practice for Donna & her crew as they are moving to Edmonton. We will miss you all & wish you the best of luck!!! See you at the races!!

Exciting News!

With the start of a new year we sat down as a big group and discussed our options for 2012. We have some really fantastic dogs that are almost ready, so many in fact that we could split into two teams. Do we do it? Or do we stick it out as one. It was a hard decision to make, but in the end we decided to split into two.

So we've got No Nonscents (NN) "The Originals"
Pixel (height dog)
Kort
Bosley
Epic
Swift
Gyp
Jethro

And introducing Full of Nonscents (FON)
Izzie (height dog)
Crawford (height dog)
Cookie
Chase
Maggie
Brit
Karma

I am very excited that Lethbridge is able to have TWO teams. How awesome is that!!

I am planning on doing some videoing at the next few practices so I'll have some stuff to update this blog with.  In the mean time know that we are training hard.

No Nonscents will be racing in February at the AKC Show.
