The 2014 Roundup

2014 had firm plans that I hoped would work out for everyone, this entailed attempting to have a much quieter year than the last few busy ones and so also saw a much quieter blog.

Despite my achieving a quieter year it was a productive one with more firsts for both dogs.

The beginning of the year saw both dogs successfully attending shoots and shotover days, wonderful new experiences for both dogs. They also attended their first Schweisshund tracking day and both suitably impressed the trainers, completing their tracks efficiently and Kodi even managing to report bark his find! Kodi won out of UKA beginners performance and into novice and now only needs 1 more clear round to move from novice steeplechase to senior steeplechase. Rhea attended her first KC agility shows and gained her first clear round, she also gained a UKA 2nd place at agility. Both dogs did their first public trick display under the ‘Do More With Your Dog’ scheme.

Both dogs have proven they can hold their own in the ring and since we much prefer to be busy enriching our lives and those of the dogs and there are only so many days in the week, we planned to have less involvement in showing once again through 2014 and we acheived this.

Championship show wise, Rhea attended Crufts and Bath (where she gained a VHC placing and achieved her Good Citizen Bronze Award) but for us that was it show wise therefore neither dog will attend Crufts 2015 however we already knew we would be unlikely to attend due to the timing of our new puppy! We also attended and were well placed at the odd open show.

Stay up to date via the blog……
