Crufts 2016!!!

I hope you like the new blog layout!

It's now only 2 day's 'til Wilson's 3rd Birthday. I've got him some toys, which I'll wrap up and give to him on his birthday. I'll also take some birthday photo's of him, which I'll share here. I meant to have his birthday video published, but I've not even begun editing (as the computer broke, and the new ones not working yet) , but I've filmed most of the clips, and I'll edit it as soon as I can. I should have a video made with a selection of clips of him as a puppy uploaded in time though. And, at some point I'll try and find lot's of photo's of him as a puppy, and growing up.

His agility training  is going well, we're working on restrains, sequences, speed, weaves, running contacts, distance, independence & distractions. He's not quite ready for competitions yet, but almost ready for training rounds. I'm also working on obedience, his pivoting is almost there, his stays are getting longer, and his come's are great, I just need to work on distractions, and heeling. I decided to re-train his recall (he does get distracted, so recall wasn't the best) and his new recall is really getting there, we just need to proof it, everywhere! 

Holly is doing fab with speed on agility, but she's a challenge to handle (so fast), so we need to work on distance, understanding & independence. However she's almost ready for competitions! Obedience does need work before we can consider competing.

There's an Agility show a few weeks after we get back from holiday, and I'm going to try and do a training round with both of them, and see how they get on. 

Anyway, we're getting all ready for holiday now! I'm so looking forward to Crufts!!! I'm trying to make a list of everything I want to do, dogs to see at discover dogs, displays and competitions in the main arena, breeds and comps in the halls, meeting up with some friends, shopping ... with the highlight being watchings Zara being shown. Once we get back, I'll try and make a video of everything! Only 5 days to go, so I'm really excited!

And then in April, I'm going to be minding a puppy! His name is Buddy, he's a brown Cocker Spaniel X Poodle puppy, he'll be about 4 months old, I'm so excited!
