Mirada at 13 months

It's the Mogwai! We were outside practicing today as we are going down to the Raleigh, NC shows. We're hoping for a good start to the year

She is completely free stacked here, so no human intervention on my part. Just a cookie and a good dog that knows where her feet belong.

And don't worry, I already know she has too much rear, lol

She is stunning!

We show Carly in 3 weeks. It'll be fun. I am sooo jealous though! I'd love to work Carly on sheep.

Good luck at the show!

If it's alright with Molly, I'd like to exhibit Mahler there Also, Jon and I are moving to PA soon, and thus will be closer to IL.

I'd love to meet up with you at some shows and learn more about the way they show. I often wonder how the judges can see what they need to see, as at the show I met you at (Where Steve Miller's Tim won), I don't think I saw any actual gaiting...just pulling.

It was very confusing for me.

Xeph...they pull (walk) for several rounds...the fast round is where the leash is "supposed" to be loose...so the dog can gait properly.
*Many handlers think it's a race......and constantly have the dogs moving quickly and pulling hard.....that is not the way it should be.
They should have tension on the leash while walking...and some tension while they start to gait.....but as the fast round starts...they should be on a looser lead. (the handler needs to move very quickly to keep up with the dog).
It is nothing like the AKC ring.

Hey! Something the SV and AKC show rings have in common! *ROFL*

In AKC when gaiting the dogs do move more at the trot, though when I was watching that SV show people seemed to pretty much be power walking with a little skip jog every now and again for the "fast", lol. It's so confusing for an AKC person like me to watch.

Always good to learn more

Looking good Xeph

I love watching a GSD slow gait, then fast gait.

Love your dog the best you can TODAY, because they could be gone tomorrow
