I will send you a PM.

Sounds like a good time was had by all. My trainer is definitely a funny fellow. Hanging out with him makes me feel like I am back in college. I can't say if that is a good thing, or a bad thing.

The Stig Hey Melissa,

She is a busy girl indeed! I am sure she is enjoying the physical and mental stimulation. I don't know how you find enough hours in the day to train her though! It is a juggling act as is for me to fit in 2 sessions a week, on top of everything else.

I am glad she is having fun. She will excel in whatever sport you decide to focus on. All the best, and enjoy the journey!

mspiker03 Seems like we have a similar situation/set up for training. Glad you guys are having fun and I bet Janka will do amazing!

Paisley is doing NW, SchH, and herding - all part of the Occupy Paisley Movement.

The Stig Hi Melissa:

Are you still doing NW too, or just focusing on tracking?

Janka and I train with a small group of people in an informal club. The trainer is working towards building enough committed members to eventually make it an official club. For now, we train in Riverside but when a trial is coming up, the handlers go to the SchH club in Ramona. It is the one I took Janka to get evaluated when she was a puppy. My trainer is a helper there.

She enjoys every minute. It is like play time for her. She is obsessed with this little rubber ball on a string. I think she will happily sell my soul for that little red ball.

Oh, awesome! Did you have a good time? This is a nice time to be in So. California.

My trainer was there to earn his certification.

mspiker03 We are doing group classes for Ob and protection (probably some privates) and I believe tracking soon. I have someone teaching me tracking privately, but random monthly lessons aren't keeping me honest with training when life gets in the way. The "local" club doesn't seem to call/email people back nor are they accepting new members, so the helper is doing group and privates on his own.

I suck at formal OB, but am learning. Paisley seems to really like protection and she does like tracking. And I really like our trainer. I also might enter her in an upcoming "pretty dog" show.

I would love a trip south, but I need to get life settled first. Call/text me when you have a moment!!! Let's catch up!

The Stig Thanks for comments, everyone. It is appreciated.

Melissa: I hope Paisley is enjoying her IPO training. Who are you training with? Is it with a club or a private trainer? I have been so busy with Dressage training, the horses and work. Are you still thinking of a SoCal trip?

I will definitely post a brag when she passes her BH, Wild Wolf. Thank you. I am hoping it would not take too long to get our BH.

Jane: Awww. Thanks! I know I am such a sporadic poster. Yes, we are hoping to train for the TR1 when she passes the first hurdle. At her age, I think it would be prudent not to pressure her with too much but it seems she has showed us that she revels having a job and enjoys the challenge.

Learn with the dog that you have and take that to the next dog.
Wise words, indeed. Thank you.

We are training in Riverside county, CA.
